The Toulouse Hacking Convention (or THCon) is a cybersecurity conference that brings together hobbyists, professionals and researchers!

Since its creation in 2017, the THCon was held every year in Toulouse, France. Today, it is an unmissable cybersecurity event in Occitania, and beyond.

Who are we?

Behind the THCon stands a team of security enthusiasts, investing their energy together to create a major cybersecurity event, open to everyone.

Our team is made of professionals, students and researchers from all over France, willing to share their knowledge with others.

online pre-challenge

This year we will offer you a pre-challenge in March. More information to come, stay tuned!

Prizes

The best players will win fancy prizes such as hacker equipment, subscription and many other surprises! They will be awarded at the social event on Thursday 20 April.

The CTF

Like the two previous editions, we will again organize a "Capture The Flag".

In that competition, players have to put their hacking skills into practice to solve cybersecurity challenges, like exploiting a flaw in a website, extracting data embedded in a memory image, finding vulnerabilities in an encryption protocol and much more… The resolution of each challenge gives you a "flag", a password needed to win points. The goal, as you might have guessed, is simply to score as much points as possible.

This CTF will take place during the Saturday that follows the talks, and will be organized at ENSEEIHT.

INTERNATIONAL INFLUENCE

In the last few editions, the CTF in hybrid face-to-face and distance learning format has captivated passionate and professional participants from all over the world!
