About Us

A small team of hardware hackers from team bi0s.We are team of security enthusiasts looking into hardware side of security.Team bi0s is largely a CTF team actively taking part in the international CTFs round the year, besides carrying out research on security issues in the real world. Fuelled by the urge for community service,bi0s has been organizing workshops and educating the masses about the need for cyber security.bi0s specializes in a wide range of cybersecurity branches.These branches are explored passionately to tackle the modern challenges today’s digitized world presents.

  • Web Security : Web application security is the process of protecting websites and online services against different security threats that exploit vulnerabilities in an application’s code.
  • Cryptography : The art of deciphering highly secrure and encrypted messages by often cracking complex algorithms exploiting implementation flaws.
  • Hardware : The real world hacks on physical devices, and hinding the exploits behind the soldering iron.
  • Forensics : Unravelling the mysteries of the footprints left behind by the attacks.
  • Reversing : That insane job of hacking the atoms inside the binaries, all just to uncover and crack the softwares.
