I must say that I was blown away by both the arrangements, design, and hospitality. Before going there I didn’t know such a place even exists (Kerala), and I found one of the most beautiful places on our planet (God’s Own, right?).

At first the idea of Cyber + Policing seemed strange, but there were plenty of interesting talks – both “high level” and “technical”. Also got to meet great people.

Thank you guys for all the efforts you’ve put into this great event!

Cocon is a unique experience. This is one of the few conferences that brings together lawyers, hackers, industry experts and politicians. It aims at encouraging dialogue and greater interaction in the fight against cybercrime. And it is a true success!

Cocon is a major event in the computer security world that takes place in India. During our last stay, we had a very warm and friendly welcome from the Cocon's organizing team. Attending this conference was a very good experience for us.

My experience of c0c0n 2014 was that the conference covers a broad spectrum of information security topics. The conference is supported both locally and internationally by the Government of India, Kerala State Police, Polcyb, and private enterprise. The conference is well organised and executed, with speakers addressing various topics of interest to anyone engaging in online investigations, or information security. Speakers are sourced from the region and internationally, presenting, and discussing issues they experience at a local level, and which are identified as common to all. c0c0n will broaden your technical and policy knowledge relating to online protection and vulnerabilities.

Hearty Congratulations to ISRA on seven years of pioneering service to Information Security & its evangelization!

The connect that ISRA had created between Government, Public & Private Organizations had been remarkable with its unique involvement of NextGen from academia. The footprint of ISRA’s work in global arena through co-hosting COOCON by involving Information Security Professionals & organizations of International repute is commendable. The thought leadership and patronage galvanized by ISRA to make the Indian impression in the global forum of Information Security needs all praise and encouragement for the road travelled and its vision for the future!

c0c0n is a great conference, much bigger than I was expecting: all of the organizers, crew and sponsors have been so nice with me, and I've learned a lot about India's hacking underground and security challenges in this huge country.

During the workshop, we see how different mistakes can be exploited to impact the integrity of a program by hijacking its execution flow of the process. We are dealing with processes compiled with last security options, i.e.: Security Cookie, ASLR (Address Random Layout Randomization), DEP (Data Executive Prevention) and CFG (Control Flow Guard)....
