The SootUP Cap­ture the Secret will take place on June 5th from 4 pm to 8 pm in room F0.231

The SootUP Capture the Secret Hackathon is an exciting event that combines Capture the Flag with Software analysis. The participants have to solve 3 Challenges, in which they have to extract passwords from an application to reach the challenge. The SootUP Framework will assist the participants in solving the challenges.

You will learn in a fun way the usage of SootUp directly from the developers.  SootUp is a powerful and popular tool for performing static analysis on Java programs.

Static analysis is a technique used in software engineering to analyze code without actually executing it. In other words, it is a way of evaluating the behavior of a program based on its source code alone. Static analysis can be used to identify errors, vulnerabilities, and other issues in software before it is even compiled or deployed. By performing static analysis on Java programs using tools like the SootUP Framework, developers can gain insights into the structure and behavior of their code and improve the overall quality and security of their software.

Whether you're an experienced programmer or just starting out, this is the perfect opportunity to learn more about developing analysis tools for detecting vulnerabilities or data leaks in Java programs. You'll get hands-on experience with SootUP and gain valuable skills that you can apply to your future projects or theses in the area of Secure Software Engineering.

The SootUP Hackathon is open to everyone.

There will be free pizza and drinks to keep you fueled up and ready to code!

Besides the food, you can earn experience for a bachelor's or master's thesis or get in contact with our Secure Software Engineering Group.

Please register, so there is enough pizza and drinks for everyone.
