    Best papers from the experts all over the world

    Interesting technical speeches will be given by the planet’s best speakers. Only hot research, actual problems and real attacks. A paper like those is what shows you that anything you might buy or use is vulnerable in one way or the other. A paper like those can help you evaluate the real security level of a system, a technology, a protocol etc. ZeroNights is the place to learn how hackers work, how malware and exploits work.

    Workshops by the world-class professionals

    This year, we have prepared unique workshops for you. Where else do they show you how to write exploits, to bypass the defense of OS and browsers, to find vulnerabilities in web projects? Practical knowledge fortified by theory is priceless.
