About SafeHack 2018

The motivation behind SafeHack is to encourage our hackers to consider their responsibilities in building something that is intrinsically safe from the beginning, by doing so we are adding a Cyber Security awareness component onto our next hack.

As the majority of hackers at a Hackathon have little to no background in secure systems we will start the SafeHack with a secure coding beginners tutorial session.

This will go over some basic ways in which code can be compromised, and show how if care is not taken, the information or your solution may be completely taken over by another party.

#SafeHack 2018: Please Take Note

These are the things Geekulcha requires of the council

What to Expect


  1. There will be an introductory session will introduce safe coding principles, and explain how the software and hardware can be used against the business (developer) and its customers.

  2. To make things more interesting for the more cyber minded, we also want to take advantage of this opportunity to show how easy it is for anyone to break into a system. So we will have servers configured with the basic vulnerabilities that were explained in the intro tutorials.

  3. The SafeHack entrants will then have an opportunity to use the tricks they have been taught to obtain information or images from these servers. This will be run as a fully separate side contest, mostly for fun and kudos.

Rules of Engagement


  1. Please Note: No cyber hacking of any other contestants, projects, laptops or devices is allowed. Any attempts will result in disqualification. The

  2. CyberHack contest is only open to beginners (hackers who do not work for or in cyber security at any level). Participants must bring their own machines for the Hackathon.

  3. Bring your own laptop

  4. You are not allowed to Hack into the WI-FI
