Sthack was first held in 2011, organized by Ingesup Computer Security club. The event takes place in Bordeaux and was first an overnight security contest. It was born from the desire of its founders to have a local CTF and to combine security and epicurean lifestyle. It now provides 24 hours of an interesting atmosphere for open discussions about security with speakers from all around the world. For one day, IT security specialists come to present their last findings. It's a day dedicated to sharing knowledge and expertise among attendees from universities, private companies or just fellow curious guys.
