Technology & IT in general: Networking, SEO, Programming, Web Design, Hardware, …etc.
We prefer to have existing and implemented ideas presented, not concepts, as they give insight to hows & whats of the project rather than fantasizing about it.
Security Auditing (Hacking) and Proof of Concepts are welcome, but affected parties should be notified and invited to the event.
If this is a new exploit, net etiquette dictates that one should notify the affected party (company owning code) about the exploit 3 months prior to releasing the code to the public.
The affected party must know about what the auditor is about to present, and the auditor must not share the PoC code with anyone apart from the affected party.
Helping fix the world, even bits of it, is a noble deed that everyone acknowledges.
