Hackers’ Playground, the first hacking experience event at the Samsung Developer Conference (SDC), was held during SDC19 in San Jose. The security team at Samsung Research hosted this event to help developers learn about the importance of security and how to protect their own code. The event was open to any software developer or security researcher. Many developers, from newbies to masters, attended the event to learn or show off their hacking skills.

Hackers’ Playground featured two programs, Hacking 101 and Open CTF.

Hacking 101

Hacking 101 was a hacking tutorial zone where developers could learn hacking skills such as Attack, Defense, and Reversing. The security team prepared fascinating examples with their own step-by-step guide, and the skilled engineers from the team assisted the attendees. In addition, attendees had a chance to get cool souvenirs after the tutorial.

Open CTF

Among hackers, Capture The Flag (CTF) is a well-known hacking competition. The Security team prepared Jeopardy-game-show-style challenges in five categories: Attack, Defense, Reversing, Crypto, and Coding. At the end of each session, there was an awards ceremony and a drawing. The winners of each category received brand new Samsung products such as a Portable SSD or JBL Bluetooth Speakers. The winners received the latest Galaxy Watch Active II as well as serious bragging rights.

Many attendees stayed in the event zone for hours and were eager to find and fix security vulnerabilities. They left review comments such as “It was nice to be able to think of code from an attackers’ point of view, not a developers’” and “I want to participate in this event again in next SDC.

Samsung takes Security very seriously and is involved in a variety of security-related activities. Among the various activities, the 3rd Samsung Security Tech Forum (SSTF) ended with unprecedented success in Seoul, South Korea.

Blacknut allows a “click and play” experience, allowing up to five players to play simultaneously on any compatible smartphone, PC or Smart TV. Blacknut’s library focuses on core and casual family members, delivering a wealth of titles spanning classic AAA games, indie favorites, story-driven adventures, strategy and also the largest collection of racing and sports games. Blacknut’s members can enjoy acclaimed hits, such as Metro Exodus, Overcooked as well as a vast collection of Disney games.
       
      “Blacknut is now bringing the largest Cloud Gaming catalog included in one subscription to Samsung, the number one game streaming destination,” said Nabil Laredj, VP, Business Development & Licensing at Blacknut. “We designed Blacknut as a family gaming platform including five player profiles that can play simultaneously. Bringing our service to Samsung devices allows more gamers to experience the future of gaming.”
       
      Launching in 2023, both Antstream and Blacknut game streaming will become available to owners of select 2021, 2022 & 2023 Samsung TVs.

By expanding the game streaming experience to select 2021 Samsung Smart TVs, existing Samsung customers will now have instant access to the same games available through the Samsung Gaming Hub on 2022 Smart TVs and Monitors.
       
      “When Samsung Gaming Hub rolled out earlier this year on 2022 TV models, the number one question we received was ‘when is game streaming coming to my 2021 TV.’ Today we are happy to share with our eager fans that they will be able to play the games they love before the end of this year,” said Mike Lucero, Head of Product for Gaming at North America Service Business Team, Samsung Electronics. “With any leading Bluetooth-enabled gaming controller and internet connection, millions of players will be able to access an expansive library of games ranging from the best AAAs to the hottest indies and retro games directly through partner apps on select 2021 Smart TVs, making Samsung devices a preferred destination for game streaming.”

      At the event, Samsung Electronics debuted the Odyssey City booth as an ode to Gamescom 2022. Through this immersive, hands-on experience showcasing the new Odyssey lineup, visitors could see for themselves the next-level performance of the advanced gaming screens.
       
       
       
      Odyssey City: Enter a New Era of Immersive Gaming — From Odyssey Ark to Gaming Hub
      The moment they entered the Samsung booth, visitors were faced with the next-generation gaming screen Odyssey Ark, unveiled for the first time in the European market. Visitors navigated the booth by moving from the Odyssey Ark Zone to the Experience Zone, then to the Gaming Hub Zone, and finally to the Tournament Zone to watch exciting live gaming.
       
      The audience was fascinated by the impressive size of the Odyssey Ark, measuring 55-inches, equipped with 4K picture quality and a high refresh rate of 165Hz. One visitor to the booth said he liked “the size because he is into photography and videography. Also, for gaming, it feels like a space station.” Another visitor tested the game Valorant on the Odyssey Ark and said, “it’s really good if you want to play the game while streaming, chat with Twitch on top of it and play music.”
       
      In addition to the Odyssey Ark, visitors marveled at the Odyssey G4 and the Odyssey Neo G8. One video game enthusiast reported that “the graphics are amazing” on the Odyssey Neo G8.
       

       
      ▲ Visitors, influencers and famous gamers who visited Gamescom experienced the immersive design of the Odyssey Ark.
       
      Another popular standout of Samsung Electronics’ booth was the Samsung Gaming Hub,1 an all-in-one game streaming discovery platform. This enables users with a Samsung TV or Odyssey lineup product that supports Samsung Gaming Hub — and a controller compatible with the gaming hub — to enjoy games with no downloads or storage space requirements.
       
      After experiencing the Samsung Gaming Hub, visitors left with the feeling that “it is convenient because you do not need a separate device such as a console or PC, and you can start the game immediately after setting up Bluetooth if you have a controller,” which is ideal for easy game preparation.

In other words, they like to watch a video or listen to music while playing a game. This shows multitasking is emerging as a new trend as gamers play a variety of games at once or play a game while searching online for a walkthrough.
       
        
      For a fun, interactive activity, Samsung engaged visitors in a quiz about the Odyssey lineup, giving prizes to those who guessed the most answers correctly. Questions included, “How many speakers and woofers are mounted on the Odyssey Ark?” Samsung knowledge pros won a prize for answering four speakers and two woofers.
