The Swinburne Cyber Security Club is a community at Swinburne University of Technology (Melbourne, Australia) for all those who are interested in cyber security/ethical hacking.
Who are we?
We are the Swinburne Cyber Security Club. We provide a cyber security centred forum that focuses on building technical skills and furthering the knowledge of all members through social meetings, training sessions, demonstrations and competitions that cater for varying skill levels.
With 200+ members who have joined our club this year (2022), we hope to build a community around the theory and practice of cyber security to build on our knowledge that typical university courses do not cover.
A little bit of history
The Swinburne Cyber Security Club was founded from a branch within the Swinburne TCP/IP club around 2012. The club first participated in the Cyber Defence University Challenge, which nowadays is called the Cyber Security Challenge Australia (CySCA). CySCA was a government-run Capture The Flag (CTF) which was run over 24 hours. The club formed with the initial goal of recruiting members for the following year's competition. Since then, the club has grown dramatically in size, and competed in many CTFs from around the world.
What do we do
Since the club started, it has grown dramatically in size and aside from meetings, there will be a large focus on preparing a mix of casual and competitive teams for each CTF. Meetings/training will aimed to be run weekly with material from the below through all skill levels from basic to advanced.
The knowledge areas that will be focused on are:
- Reverse Engineering (RE/REV)
- Website exploitation (Web)
- Cryptography and Cryptanalysis (Crypto)
- Binary Exploitation (PWN)
- OSINT (Open Source Intelligence)
- Forensics & Steganography
- Malware Analysis
- Mobile OS (Android/iOS)
- Operating Systems (Linux/Windows/macOS)
