Hello everyone !! On 4th July 2015 (Saturday), I, Sukanya got an opportunity to attend the very first Null Kolkata Chapter meet. The event was jointly conducted with OWASP (The Open Web Application Security Project).
It was a wonderful experience which I would like to share with all of you.
The event started with an introductory session where everyone introduced themselves and then the talks kickstarted.
The event started with the presentation of Dibyendu Sikdar – on Next Gen Networking (SDN) and Testing.
Followed by a talk on New Age Red Teaming : Enterprise Infiltration by Shritam Bhowmick – Application Security Specialist at Defencely.
I got an opportunity speak on the Internet of Thing Fundamental and my co-speaker was Sumantro Mukherjee who spoke on the Internet of Things Risk.
The topics that I was able to share with everyone present in the room were :
- Internet ?
- Things ?
- Internet of things
- Characteristics of Iot
- Building blocks of Iot
- Working of Iot
- Architecture of Iot
- What devices make it to Iot
- Iot protocols
- Iot platforms
- Iot- past, present, future
- Applications of Iot
- How Iot is enhancing our lives
- Future with Iot
Also, the best part was I was able to interest the audience with a hardware project which included Arduino Uno and PIR (passive infrared sensor) motion sensor. This project was for motion sensing. The PIR sensor was connected to the Arduino Board and also there was a LED indicator which glowed when any motion is detected.
I am glad that everyone was enthusiastic and enjoyed the project !!
Surajeet Ghosh gave a talk on OWASP VA Audit Mechanism.
There was a surprise talk from Saurav Modak.
Also, Krishnendu Paul – Chapter Leader at OWSAP and SA – Information Security at Ericsson India Global Service Pvt. Ltd. explained the audience about network security.
It was a pleasure to be able to learn and share with such a mass of wonderful, open-minded, dynamic and learned personalities. Looking ahead for such an experience again in the near future.
