The ONE!

One Schedule to Rule them All!


Welcome to the "One Schedule to Rule them All!". Thank you for your interest by using this. This is an attempt to make things easier for you, the DEF CON attendee, to figure out the when/what/where during the chaos of DEF CON 30.

It started out simple. I had a Kindle and wanted an ebook of the schedule so I didn't have to wear out the paper pamphlet by pulling it out after every talk to figure out where to go next. Back then there was only the main DEF CON tracks, not really any Villages, and production of the ebooks were easy. Over time the Village system developed with a resulting multiplication in complexity, both for attendees and for my production. The offerings no longer include epub and mobi formats and instead now include html, csv, PDF, ical, public Google calendar, and mysql dump format files. Hopefully you'll find something of use.

The intent is still to be a resource to answer the question at the end of an hour of "What's next?"

As a general rule I do not include:

Be sure to check out the Links section at the bottom of this. Most all of the events listed here were derived from these links and a Infoboot data feed. There is much more going on at DEF CON than what is listed here.

Check out the Guides/Tips/FAQs links if you're new to Las Vegas.
Notable suggestions are:

And finally, this is only as good as the ideas and information used to generate it. I welcome your constructive suggestions and comments. Please send them to qumqats@outel.org

Have a good time at DEF CON 30!

AI Village Icon



Artificial Learning techniques are becoming more prevalent in core security technologies like malware detection and network traffic analysis. Its use has opened up new vectors for attacks against non-traditional targets, such as deep learning based image recognition systems used in self driving cars. There are unique challenges in defending and attacking these machine learning systems that the security community needs to be made aware of. This AI Village will introduce DEF CON attendees to these systems and the state of the art in defending and attacking them. We will provide a setting to educate DEF CON at large through workshops and a platform for researchers in this area to share the latest research.

Our main focus is on expanding the hands-on activities that attendees can participate in. This year, attendees will create a realistic face using StyleGAN, learn how to generate text, and attack a discriminatory resume screening program. We'll also have talks via CFP, and workshops: both introductory ML for beginners and intermediate/advanced on Facial Recognition/Adversarial ML. We are planning three contests inside the village: one as a standard CTF, another on evading a malware classifier (Ember), and a final realtime panel of Deepfaked DarkTangent's answering personal questions and giving opinions on life, the universe, and everything!

Adversary Village is a community initiative which purely focuses on Adversary simulation/emulation, threat/APT emulation, Breach and adversarial attack simulation, supply chain security simulation, adversary tactics, life, adversary philosophy, survival skills and Purple teaming.Adversary Village will be organizing technical talks, workshops, live demos, Adversary Wars CTF, panel discussions and other hands-on activities on adversary simulation, emulation and purple teaming.

This is different from any of what has been covered in the existing villages, because our focus is on simulation of the actions of a threat actor or an adversary and this being simulated here. As this domain matures, we anticipate active participation from enterprises, as such simulations would help immensely towards internal capacity building from having a "live fire" training opportunity. An increasing number of researchers too are focusing on building tools and techniques for simulation of various adversarial actions against an organization or Supply chain, instead of actual real-world exploitation.
The goal of the Adversary Village would be to build a vendor neutral open security community for the researchers and organizations, who are putting together new means and methodologies towards the simulation/emulation of adversary tactics then purple teaming.

Adversary Wars CTF
Adversary Village will be hosting a CTF named "Adversary Wars", where the participants will have to pose as adversaries and simulate adversarial actions against each element of the dummy target organization.
Our end-goal is to build a CTF platform for adversary simulation/emulation knowledge sharing and exercises.
Adversary Wars would have real world simulation CTF scenarios and challenges, where the adversaries can simulate attacks and learn new attack vectors, TTPs, techniques, etc.
There would be combined exercises which include different levels of threat/adversary emulation and purple teaming.

Adversary Simulator booth
Adversary Simulator booth has hands-on adversary emulation plans specific to a wide variety of threat-actors, these are meant to provide the participant/visitor with a better understanding of the Adversary tactics.
This is a volunteer assisted activity where anyone, both management and technical folks can come-in and experience different categories of simulation, emulation and purple scenarios. Adversary Simulator booth will be having a lab environment focused on recreating enterprise infrastructure, aimed at simulation and emulating various adversaries. Visitors will be able to view, simulate and control various TTPs used by adversaries.
The simulator is meant to be a learning experience, irrespective of whether one is hands-on with highly sophisticated attack tactics or from the management.

Growing from seeds of demand, the Biohacking Village emerged at DEF CON to deliver action-oriented reinvention of the safety and security of health care. THE BIOHACKING VILLAGE , a 501(c)3 organization, is uniquely poised to inform global conversations in health care cybersecurity research. Representing voices who see ‘code’ as genetics, ‘subroutines’ as organic processes, and ‘programs’ as life itself the BHV has grown to become an expansive and inclusive, hands-on playground for the entire biomedical ecosystem - patients, clinicians, hackers, manufacturers, regulators, hospital administrators, and others seeking healthier futures through meaningful technology. This nimble community delivers hands-on, strident learning labs to influence in health care, industry, and manufacturing.

We bring the biomedical ecosystem to DEF CON in five ways:
DEVICE LAB : The highly-collaborative environment builds health care, connecting security researchers, manufacturers, clinicians, and regulators, to learn from each other and develop skills, codifying best practices and paths for high fidelity cyber safety.

SPEAKER LAB: Speakers foster critical thinking, problem solving, human interaction literacy, ethics debates, creativity, and collaboration. Subject matter experts and researchers share the future of their research, reflecting the biological technologies and emerging threats.

CATALYST LAB: Providing interaction with thought leaders from the medical device and citizen science communities through training and hands-on workshops and solutions design, to cover the entirety of the biomedical device and security ecosystem.

CAPTURE THE FLAG: Featuring the virtual learning environment of St. Elvis Hospital, the CTF offers protocol, regulatory, and biological challenges to access and assess vulnerabilities in real devices.

TABLE TOP EXERCISES: Discussion-based sessions of increasing complexity and difficulty regarding vulnerabilities in a series of Machiavellian healthcare industry scenarios.

DEF CON Discord Channel


It's true, the Data Duplication Village is back for DC 30! We have all the bits and bytes available from infocon.org packed up into nice, neat packages. If you're looking for something to fill up all your unused storage, may I recommend a nice hash table or two with a side of all of the DefCon talks? This is a "free-to-you" service where we're providing you direct access to terabytes of useful data to help build those skills.

HOW IT WORKS
DEF CON will provide a core set of drive duplicators as well as data content options. We accept 6, 8, and 10TB drives on a first come, first served basis and duplicate 'till we can no longer see straight. Bring in your blank SATA3 drives - check them in early - to get the data you want. Come back in about 24 hours to pick up your data-packed drive. Space allowing, we'll accept drives all the way through until Saturday morning - but remember, it's FIFO!

WHAT IS AVAILABLE - Three drives:
  1. 6TB drive 1-3: Updated archive of infocon.org plus other "direct from DT" content, built on last years collection and always adding more for your data consuming appetite.
  2. 6TB drive 2-3: freerainbowtables.com GSM A51 and MD5 hash tables (Tables 1-2) with about 404 gigs free
  3. 6TB drive 3-3: more rainbowtables, lanman, mysqlsha1, ntlm, and some word lists (Tables 2-2) with about 136 gigs free


The DC 29 content will be posted at dcddv.org once finalized

WHAT YOU NEED
* 6TB SATA3 512e format 7200rpm drive - one for each source you want

If you want a full copy of everything you will need three drives.
You can bring back last year's drive(s) to be wiped / updated (you should remove any 2018 stickers).

WHEN TO BE THERE
Data Duplication Village Hours:

- Thursday, August 11, 16:00 - 19:00 (drop off only)
- Friday, August 12, 10:00 - 17:00
- Saturday, August 13, 10:00 - 17:00
- Sunday, August 14, 10:00 - 11:00 (last chance pickup only)

- Space permitting, last drop off is Saturday at 3:00pm.
- Last chance pickup is Sunday from 10:00 to 11:00.

We're working on a method to post completed ticket ranges to https://dcddv.org and https://twitter.com/DDV_DC

SIDE NOTES

THAT'S ALL?
But wait - there's more! A few years ago, we made our our stretch goal a reality to provide a pick-and-pull datastore in the DDV. We expect to do it bigger and better this year! Dark Tangent and KnightOwl l post the up-to-date details in the DC Forum thread and you are encouraged to ask any questions you have there as con approaches.

Girls Hack Village seeks to bring gender diverse perspectives of the contributions, perspectives, and issues facing women/girl hackers. It is a space to discuss issues affecting girls in cybersecurity and will include Talks, Workshops, and Discussions Panels. We are looking to have a village for womxn in ethical hacking fields that differ from organizations by focusing specifically on the experience of women as a diverse minority in cybersecurity.

Our village is designed to highlight the contributions and experiences of girls in cybersecurity. Women are underrepresented in cybersecurity and our goal is to highlight the female experience in Cybersecurity. Women are traditionally underrepresented at defcon and the girlshackvillage will give attendees the opportunity to learn about cybersecurity and hacking in a gender friendly place.

We will use the Discord to disseminate information during the village open hours and for Q&A during the discussion panel.

Every day our lives become more connected to consumer hardware. Every day the approved uses of that hardware are reduced, while the real capabilities expand.

Come discover hardware hacking tricks and tips regain some of that capacity, and make your own use for things! We have interactive demos to help you learn new skills. We have challenges to compete against fellow attendees. We have some tools to help with your fever dream modifications. Come share what you know and learn something new.

We are two villages in one. We run a large number of tables for soldering when in person, and to allow people to understand that hardware is more than soldering we run the Hardware Hacking Village as embedded / reversing / hardware things other than soldering.

Ham radio isn’t just what your grandpa does in the shed out back. Radios are an important piece of technology we use everyday, and amateur (“ham”) radio has been at the forefront of its development since day one -- we are some of the original hardware hackers! DIY, exploration, and sharing has always been a vital part of our community and the goal of Ham Radio Village is to nurture this growth into the next generation with all of the amazing people at DEF CON.

Our village will have demos, talks, presentations, contests, and of course, license exams!

So come visit Ham Radio Village to learn more about the hobby, including how antennas work (and how to build your own), how to actually use that software defined radio sitting on the shelf, how to trackdown a rogue transmitter with a handheld radio, and how you can _legally_ transmit 1,500 Watts into the airwaves after taking a simple multiple-choice test!

One of the unique things about ham radio is that it goes deep into the theory and science of radio. This knowledge unlocks a whole new level of understanding about why and how radios work and radio waves propagate. With just about everything containing some sort of radio these days, this information can help us better research, attack, and defend all things that emit RF. For example: Just about anyone can build an antenna with simple hardware; having an understanding of the fundamentals allows you to troubleshoot and tune the performance of that antenna to pick up the exact signals you want while filtering out the rest.

Packet Hacking Village

The Packet Hacking Village is an experience like no other. We are one of the longest-standing DEF CON villages, and we wear that honor with pride. The Packet Hacking Village is a place where everyone can take away some knowledge, whether they are a threat hunter, pentester, or an enthusiastic newcomer. We provide exciting events, live music, competitions with awesome prizes, and learning opportunities for all levels.

Wall of Sheep

The Wall of Sheep is an entertaining and interactive demonstration of what happens when network users let their guard down.

People don’t always think about internet safety in a practical sense. Even seasoned industry professionals get careless and believe that technology will passively protect them. The Wall of Sheep puts these assumptions to the test, and shows that when people let their guard down, anything can happen - and often does.

We monitor the DEF CON network, waiting for users to log into their email, web sites, or other network services without the protection of encryption. Once found, we post redacted yet identifiable information on the Wall of Sheep as a good-natured reminder that security matters, and someone is always watching.

Capture The Packet

The time for those of hardened mettle is drawing near; are you prepared to battle?
Compete in the world’s most challenging cyber defense competition based on the Aries Security cyber range. Tear through hundreds of bleeding-edge challenges, traverse a hostile enterprise-class network, and diligently analyze the findings to escape unscathed. Glory and prizes await those who emerge victorious from this upgraded labyrinth.

While Capture The Packet can easily scale for users of every level, for DEF CON we pull out all the stops and present our most fiendishly difficult puzzles. Capture The Packet has been a DEF CON Black Badge event for over 10 years, and we don’t plan on stopping. This event attracts the best of the best from around the world to play – are you ready to show us what you’ve got?

Packet Detective & Packet Inspector

DEF CON regularly attracts fresh talent in the Information Security field. Packet Detective and Packet Inspector engage experienced professionals and newcomers alike with hands-on, volunteer supported exercises.

These challenges promote critical thinking, teach core security tools, build professional cybersecurity skillsets, and inspire attendees towards larger Capture The Flag (or Packet!) style events.

Packet Detective and Packet Inspector are a great way for folks of all experience levels to learn under the eye of our skilled volunteers. Whether it’s time to brush up on skills or time to launch a new career, this is the best place to start.

Walkthrough Workshops

Walkthrough Workshops offer hands-on training at a self-guided pace. In these workshops, attendees take a deep dive into some of the most relevant subjects in cybersecurity with subject matter experts standing by to assist. Every year we bring new topics to the table, and our team of experts from all walks of life provide mentoring to guide the way.

WosDJCo

At the Packet Hacking Village, we work hard to create a unique mood and vibe. The Wall of Sheep DJ Company (WoSDJCo) brings music and atmosphere into the mix. Our goal is to help everyone have a good time while staying entertained and motivated. Stop by and enjoy the smooth beats and deep vibes of musical hackery.

The Packet Hacking Village is where you’ll find network shenanigans and a whole lot more. There’s exciting events, live music, competitions with awesome prizes, and tons of giveaways. PHV welcomes all DEF CON attendees and there is something for every level of security enthusiast from beginners to those seeking a black badge. Wall of Sheep gives attendees a friendly reminder to practice safe computing through strong end-to-end encryption. PHV Speakers, Workshops, and Walkthrough Workshops delivers high quality content for all skill levels. Packet Detective and Packet Inspector offers hands-on exercises to help anyone develop or improve their Packet-Fu. WoSDJCo has some of the hottest DJs at con spinning live for your enjoyment. Finally... Capture The Packet, the ultimate cyber defense competition that has been honored by DEF CON as a black badge event for seven of the eight years of it’s run.

Hackers are early users and abusers of technology, and that technology is now critical to modern life. As governments make policy decisions about technology Hackers, researchers and academics need to be part of that conversation before decisions are made, not after policies are implemented. To do that DEF CON is a place for everyone on the policy and technology spectrum to interact, learn from each other, and improve technology.

Policy will build connections across and between technical and policy experts and provide opportunities for attendees interested
in learning more about how policy and technology intersect and to examine the challenges at this intersection.

Our Policy program will consist of Main stage presentation and panels, daytime sessions in our policy track, and some
evening lounges that will provide an off the record and more intimate setting to have policy-focused conversation

The Physical Security Village (formerly the Lock Bypass Village) explores the world of hardware bypasses and techniques generally outside of the realm of cyber-security and lockpicking. Come learn some of these bypasses, how to fix them, and have the opportunity to try them out for yourself.

We’ll be covering the basics, like the under-the-door-tool and latch slipping attacks, as well as an in depth look at more complicated bypasses. Learn about elevator hacking, attacking alarm systems at the sensor and communication line, and cut-away and display models of common hardware to show how it works on the inside.

Looking for a challenge? Show us you can use lock bypass to escape from a pair of standard handcuffs in under 30 seconds and receive a prize!

How will you or your village contribute a new perspective to the content at DEF CON?

The Physical Security Village (formerly the Lock Bypass Village) is almost 100% hands on and is one of the only villages that has content about physical security. We strive to develop new content on a yearly basis to retain the interest of new and existing participants. This year we will be rebuilding all of our door displays to improve the production value, we will also have new displays that capture elevator security, double doors (with a deadbolt), forcible entry, some content on Access controls/Wiegand/RFID cloning, and other subjects.

Recon Village is an Open Space with Talks, Live Demos, Workshops, Discussions, CTFs, etc. with a common focus on Reconnaissance. The core objective of this village is to spread awareness about the importance of reconnaissance, open-source intelligence (OSINT), and demonstrating how even small information about a target can cause catastrophic damage to individuals and organizations.

We will have our Jeopardy Style OSINT CTF Contest again. The challenges will be around harvesting information about target organizations, their employee's social media profiles, their public svn/gits, password breach dumps, darknet, paste(s), etc. followed by active exploitation, bug hunting, investigation, and pentest scenarios of virtual targets. All the target organizations, employees, servers, etc. will be created by our team and hence will not attract any legal issues.

Similar to the last year, there will be Awesome rewards for CTF winners, along with free t-shirts, stickers, village coins, and other schwag which attendees can grab and show off.

RF Hackers Sanctuary presents: The Radio Frequency Village at DEF CON .

After 14 years of evolution, from the WiFi Village, to the Wireless
Village, RF Hackers Sanctuary presents: The Radio Frequency Village at
DEF CON.

The Radio Frequency Village is an environment where people come to learn about the security of radio frequency (RF) transmissions, which includes wireless technology, applications of software defined radio (SDR), Bluetooth (BT), Zigbee, WiFi, Z-wave, RFID, IR and other protocols within the usable RF spectrum. As a security community we have grown beyond WiFi, and even beyond Bluetooth and Zigbee.

The RF Village includes talks on all manner of radio frequency command and control as well as communication systems. While everyone knows about the WiFi and Bluetooth attack surfaces, most of us rely on many additional technologies every day. RF Hackers Sanctuary is supported by a group of experts in the area of information security as it relates to RF technologies. RF Hackers Sanctuary’s common purpose is to provide an environment in which participants may explore these technologies with a focus on improving their skills through offense and defense. These learning environments are provided in the form of guest speakers, panels, and Radio Frequency Capture the Flag games, to promote learning on cutting edge topics as it relates to radio communications. We promise to still provide free WiFi.

Speaker and contest schedule can be found on our website:
https://rfhackers.com/calendar

Co-located with the RF Village is the RF Capture the Flag. Come for
the talks, stay for the practice and the competition.

Rogues Village icon or logo


Rogues Village is a place to explore alternative approaches and uses for security concepts, tools, and techniques by looking to non-traditional areas of knowledge. Incorporating expertise from the worlds of magic, sleight of hand, con games, and advantage play, this village has a special emphasis on the overlap between Social Engineering, Physical Security, and Playful Mischief.

Because we specialize in non-traditional approaches, Rogues Village can be an excellent entry point for people with a less established background in the security space. By introducing and engaging with existing topics in innovative, relatable, and frequently hands-on ways, they can become easier for people to approach and pick up for the first time.

Additionally, we are one of the few villages with a view that explicitly extends beyond the security space, meaning our perspective will necessarily include influences, ideas, and inspirations that are unique to Rogues Village.

The Social Engineering Community is formed by a group of individuals who have a passion to enable people of all ages and backgrounds interested in Social Engineering with a venue to learn, discuss, and practice this craft. We plan to use this opportunity at DEF CON to present a community space that offers those elements through panels, presentations, research opportunities, and contests in order to act as a catalyst to foster discussion, advance the craft and create a space for individuals to expand their network. SEC Village plans to accomplish the above by bringing together passionate individuals to have a shared stake in building this community.

TEV - Tamper Evidence Village


TEV Village: Talk List
DC Forums Page: https://forum.defcon.org/node/240937
Location: Summit BR 201-205, 235 Summit-Forum Pre-Fun 3 - Map

Tamper-evident" refers to a physical security technology that provides evidence of tampering (access, damage, repair, or replacement) to determine authenticity or integrity of a container or object(s). In practical terms, this can be a piece of tape that closes an envelope, a plastic detainer that secures a hasp, or an ink used to identify a legitimate document. Tamper-evident technologies are often confused with "tamper resistant" or "tamper proof" technologies which attempt to prevent tampering in the first place. Referred to individually as "seals," many tamper technologies are easy to destroy, but a destroyed (or missing) seal would provide evidence of tampering! The goal of the TEV is to teach attendees how these technologies work and how many can be tampered with without leaving evidence.

The Tamper-Evident Village includes the following contests and events:

Let’s GoOOoo!

COVID Updates for DEF CON 30

DEF CON Masked Jack logo image

DEF CON 30 is getting closer, and that means we’re starting to get questions about Covid-19 protocols for the in-person event. Here’s the current state of play.

Some things have changed since DC29. The US has largely stopped checking vaccine status for entry to indoor events, owing at least partly to the knowledge that the vaccines serve more to prevent severe disease than to curtail transmission. COVID-19 testing is now mostly done privately with widely available at-home kits.

But most things haven’t changed. There are still new variants on the move. There are still spikes in transmission and hospitalization. Masks are still the most effective way to protect people in indoor events.

Barring a major change in the situation, we will not check proof of vaccination, but we will keep last year's mask requirement in place for DEF CON 30. Protecting the community is our first priority, and we want to make sure that everyone is as safe as we can make them. Everyone includes the healthy, the vulnerable and those who have immune compromised loved ones they need to protect.

Thank you for all you did to protect each other last year, and with your help we’ll do it again this year.

Training Coming to DEF CON 30, Call for Training is Open!

DEF CON Training logo image

The wait is over - we’re ready to announce the Call for Trainers!

This year we’re adding DEF CON Training – intensive, two-day courses of study aimed at building specific skills. In some cases, these courses will even carry a certification. The Trainings will be held August 15-16, the Monday and Tuesday after DEF CON.

We’re looking for unique, technical, and practical presentations from trainers with deep knowledge of their subject. If that’s you, we’re offering:

- 50/50 split of the gross income.
- Optional test where students demonstrate their skill for a certificate.

All the info you need to apply is on the Call for Training page. Get your applications in early – we look forward to seeing what you’ve got to share.

New Payment Option for DEF CON 30!

DEF CON 30 logo image

DEF CON is a cash-at-the-door kind of conference. Paying in cash helps protect your privacy, and search warrants can't vacuum up PII we don't collect. You will always be able to lay down US dollars in the reg line and collect your badge.

Still, the experience of DC29 taught us a few things. Some of our attendees work DEF CON into their business travel schedule, and the option to pre-reg with a credit card over the web made things much easier for them. Some of our attendees need to manage a group purchase, or want a more detailed receipt.

For everyone who fits into those categories, we’re happy to announce that we’re keeping the option of online registration. Starting Monday, March 28th, you’ll be able to use shop.defcon.org to buy your ticket and get your receipt. We hope the online option makes the process more streamlined for those who need it. We thank people for their patience and feedback as we navigate the changing landscape.

The price for DEF CON 30 is $360, with a processing fee of $9.66 added to online orders.

Fine print: Currently we cannot provide beachballs and pizza to the online purchasing experience. For that, you’re gonna need LineCon.

Enter the DEF CON 30 Artwork Contest!

DEF CON 30 THEME image

Now that the DEF CON 30 Theme is out there in the world, it’s time to go pencils up on the DEF CON Art Contest!

This year’s theme is ‘Hacker Homecoming’ , and you can read all about it on the DEF CON Forums. It’s a theme meant to celebrate our community’s much awaited reunion next August. It’s also meant to reference the 30th Anniversary we’re celebrating, which is a pretty big deal for a hacker conference.

So if you’ve got some art skills, you’ve got a luxurious 7+ months to get your take on the theme in to us. There’s so much time between now and the June 1 deadline that you could probably learn a brand new art style in which to make your submission. You can drop as many submissions to pictures@defcon.org as you want, so enter early and often.

### Theme:

We are looking for artwork that reflects a spirit of community and reunion. We’re looking for art that combines the 90’s hacker aesthetic of DEF CON’s history and our tribe’s 21st century future. We’re looking for your vision and vibes.

We hope you’ll take in the information in the style guide , but we hope that you’ll use that as a launching pad and not a set of limits. We want to see where you can take these ideas.

### Guidelines:

300 DPI. Convert type to outlines where applicable. Trust your instincts - we’re looking for genuine energy, not technical perfection. We want to share and amplify the artists in our community. If tlhat’s you, get your ideas down. If that’s not you yet, could it be? You’ve got a few months to find out.

Entries will be placed on the DEF CON Forums for voting, and there will be prizes. There will also be gratitude, and opportunities to inspire others with your special way of seeing the world. We can’t wait to see what you’ll make!

DEF CON 30 Theme: Hacker Homecoming

DEF CON 30 THEME image

This has been a crazy couple of years.

A global pandemic turned DEF CON 28 into DEF CON Safe Mode. Some easing of the restrictions and some strict attendance rules gave us a hybrid con for DC29. An improvement, to be sure, but something short of a full DEF CON experience.

We want DEF CON 30 to have the energy of a reunion. We’ll be back togeher in a brand spanking new venue. We’ll be thirty years old - an amazing milestone for a hacker conference under any circumstances. In honor of all that, we’re calling DEF CON 30 ‘Hacker Homecoming’.

The first reason is that it’s literally a return home. After two years of separation, we’re looking forward to having more of our family under one roof, under the Vegas late summer sun.

There’s also a North American tradition called ‘Homecoming’. Secondary schools and colleges invite luminary alums back for a big celebration of the school’s history and a toast to its future. We intend to do just that for DC30. We’ll have some surprise guests from DEF CON’s illustrious past on hand to talk about the amazing places their life has taken them since joining the DC Community. We’ll also be laying out some of the map forward from our 30th Anniversary.

So please join us in the Caesar’s Forums if you can, and on the Discord if you can’t. Maybe even pack a fancy outfit for the homecoming dance. It’s high time for a reunion.

Design Inspiration

This year’s theme is about celebrating the past and getting geeked about the future, so we’re looking for smooth integration of old school hacker stylee with future vibes.

We took the color palette inspiration from arguably the most iconic DEF CON image of all time: the rooftop photo from DEF CON 1.

The photo is amazing for any number of reasons, but the most important is that even though it screams early 90s hacker culture, it also shows some of the essence of what DEF CON is even in the 2020s. It’s still a gathering of extraordinary digital misfits going Voltron in the Vegas night.

The fonts were also selected to be like a homecoming celebration, with some reverence for the past, some excitement about the future. The past is represented by the very 90s CityPop and Geom and the future by the futristic minimalism of Open Sans.

Homework

As always, we’ll be sharing movies, books, music and other random media to get you in the right frame of mind for maximum DEF CON. This year we’re even giving you an extra few months to get through the syllabus. Watch the DEF CON site for additions to all the lists. Pencils UP!

Movies:
Sneakers
The Imitation Game
Zero Days

Books:
The Shockwave Rider
The Cuckoo’s Egg
Kingpin: How One Hacker Took Over the Billion-Dollar Cybercrime Underground
The Cult of the Dead Cow

What is DEF CON doing for DC30, and how can I attend?

DEF CON 30 will be a semi-hybrid event this year, we will give hackers a choice in how they wish to experience DEF CON but we are returning at full operating capacity. What do we mean by semi-hybrid? We will be hosting our full con in-person in Las Vegas and our approved villages and contests will be contributing additional online content within the official DEF CON Discord. All Online content will be similar to the 2020 & 2021 cons. Our official talks will be streamed via DCTV on our Twitch, and several contests and villages will be providing unique online immersive contests and presentations.

Can I register for in-person DEF CON online?

Update: Online sales have closed. DC 30 badges can now be purchased with cash at the door.

Yes. DEF CON is a cash-at-the-door kind of conference. Paying in cash helps protect your privacy, and search warrants can't vacuum up PII we don't collect. You will always be able to lay down US dollars in the reg line and collect your badge. Still, the experience of DC29 taught us a few things. Some of our attendees work DEF CON into their business travel schedule, and the option to pre-reg with a credit card over the web made things much easier for them. Some of our attendees need to manage a group purchase, or want a more detailed receipt.

For everyone who fits into those categories, we’re happy to announce that we’re keeping the option of online registration. You’ll be able to use shop.defcon.org to buy your ticket and get your receipt. We hope the online option makes the process more streamlined for those who need it. We thank people for their patience and feedback as we navigate the changing landscape. The price for DEF CON 30 is $360, with a processing fee of $9.66 added to online orders.


Can I buy a DEF CON badge with Black Hat?

Yes, it will be an option when you check out at Black Hat.


How do I participate in virtual DEF CON?

For the virtual portion of DEF CON you will need a Discord account.
You can find detailed instructions on getting on the DEF CON Discord server here. There is a FAQ for Humans on Discord as well.

You can support DEF CON and upgrade your account by purchasing the Human Plus role that gives you more permissions than the free "Human" role. Connect to the DEF CON Discord Server: https://discord.gg/DEFCON

To see what happenings are currently planning to be in-person, hybrid, or virtual only please visit https://forum.defcon.org/node/239768


What if I don't want a Discord Account?

While we don't think you'll get the full experience, all of our content will be released via YouTube and put on the DEF CON Media Server. The Talks for DEF CON will be released during the con on the DEF CON YouTube and Twitch channels.


Will there be Uber Badges again?

Our annual tradition of awarding black "Uber" badges for CTF and other select contests, will continue, for in-person events only. To make sure that attendees are playing contests with the full hacker spirit we don't announce which contests qualify for an Uber Badge ahead of the contest (aside from the Official CTF) . We want to see how well each contest operates, and how players perform, so those decisions aren't made until Sunday of the con. Check out the registry of past black badge winners!


Where can I find more info on the DEF CON CTF?

DEF CON CTF Qualifiers May 28-29. Please follow Nautilus CTF on twitter at https://twitter.com/Nautilus_CTF and keep a look out on their CTF website at https://nautilus.institute. For a little history on the contest check out the CTF History page.


I have a black badge, do I need to pre-register?

No, just show up on site and go to inhuman registration. The rules governing the use of Black Badges are available on the Black Badge Policy Page. If you notice any errors or omissions in the list, please contact us at info@defcon.org. Congratulations to everyone who's earned a Black Badge and good luck to all who seek one.

Capacity is currently capped at each given space’s fire code standard capacity. In case of changing health and safety recommendations, limits will be reviewed and revised at the direction of Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) and there will be dedicated support onsite to ensure our policies are being followed.


What health measures/protocols is DEF CON taking to ensure a safe environment on-site?

DEF CON is working closely with Caesars Entertainment hotels to provide a safe and healthy experience for all. We will comply with whatever safety measures are required of us.


Will I be required to wear a mask?

Yes. Barring a major change in the situation, we will not check proof of vaccination, but we will keep last year's mask requirement in place for DEF CON 30. Protecting the community is our first priority, and we want to make sure that everyone is as safe as we can make them. Everyone includes the healthy, the vulnerable and those who have immune compromised loved ones they need to protect.

Masks requirements include:


The following do not fulfill the mask requirements:


Thank you for all you did to protect each other last year, and with your help we'll do it again this year.


What's DEF CON's official theme for DEF CON 30?

DEF CON FAQ


Frequently asked questions about DEF CON



What is DEF CON?

DEF CON is one of the oldest continuously running hacker conventions around, and also one of the largest.



How did DEF CON start?

Originally started in 1993, it was a meant to be a party for member of "Platinum Net", a Fido protocol based hacking network out of Canada. As the main U.S. hub I was helping the Platinum Net organizer (I forget his name) plan a closing party for all the member BBS systems and their users. He was going to shut down the network when his dad took a new job and had to move away. We talking about where we might hold it, when all of a sudden he left early and disappeared. I was just planning a party for a network that was shut down, except for my U.S. nodes. I decided what the hell, I'll invite the members of all the other networks my BBS (A Dark Tangent System) system was a part of including Cyber Crime International (CCI), Hit Net, Tired of Protection (ToP), and like 8 others I can't remember. Why not invite everyone on #hack? Good idea!



Where did the name come from?

The short answer is a combination of places. There as a SummerCon in the summer, a HoHoCon in the winter, a PumpCon during Halloween, etc. I didn't want any association with a time of year. If you are a Phreak, or just use your phone a lot you'll notes "DEF" is #3 on the phone. If you are into military lingo DEF CON is short for "Defense Condition." Now being a fan of the movie War Games I took note that the main character, David Lightman, lived in Seattle, as I do, and chose to nuke Las Vegas with W.O.P.R. when given the chance. Well I knew I was doing a con in Vegas, so it all just sort of worked out.

There are several resources that will give you an idea of what DEF CON is all about.

DEF CON Press: through the prism of the media
DEF CON Groups: Local groups that meet
DEF CON Media Server: DC 1 to the present, captured
Google: always a good research starting point
Just remember, DEF CON is what you make of it.



When and where is DEF CON?

DEF CON is generally in the last week of July or first week of August in Las Vegas. DEF CON 30 will be held August 11th through August 14th. We are gauging interest on what degree of where. Many people arrive a day early, and many stay a day later.


Isn't there a DEF CON FAQ already?

Yes, an unofficial one. It's quite humorous, sometimes informative, and DEF CON takes no responsibility for its content. It can be found at http://defcon.stotan.org/faq/



What are the rules of DEF CON?

Physical violence is prohibited. Harassment of any kind is prohibited. We don't support illegal drug use. Minors should be accompanied by their parent(s) or guardian(s). Please refrain from doing anything that might jeopardize the conference or attendees such as lighting your hair on fire or throwing lit road flares in elevators. DEF CON Goons are there to answer your questions and keep everything moving. Hotel security is there to watch over their property. Each has a different mission, and it is wise to not anger the hotel people. Please be aware that if you engage in illegal activities there is a large contingency of feds that attend DEF CON. Talking about how you are going to bomb the RNC convention in front of an FBI agent is a Career Limiting Move!

You can view the DEF CON Code of Conduct at https://defcon.org/html/links/dc-code-of-conduct.html.



Is DEF CON cancelled?

No.



What is there to do at DEF CON?

DEF CON is a unique experience for each con-goer. If you google around you'll find dozens of write-ups that will give you an idea of what people have experienced at DEF CON. Trust write-ups more than media articles about the con. Some people play capture the flag 24x7, while many people never touch a computer at DEF CON. Some people see every speech they can, while others miss all speeches. Other activities include contests, movie marathons, scavenger hunts, sleep deprivation, lock picking, warez trading, drunken parties, spot the fed contest, the official music events. Because DEF CON is what the attendees make of it, there are more events than even we are aware of. Half the fun is learning what happened at DEF CON after the fact!



I'm not a hacker, should I go to DEF CON?

Many people have different definitions of what is a ‘hacker’. I would recommend looking at previous years speeches, and write-ups from past attendees - this should give you a good idea if DEF CON is for you. This hacker FAQ might give you some insight into the matter as well. If you do not have any technical interests, DEF CON is probably not for you. Sure there is a lot of socializing you can do, but technology and hacking is the core of the con.



Do criminals go to DEF CON?

Yes. They also go to high school, college, work in your workplace, and the government. There are also lawyers, law enforcement agents, civil libertarians, cryptographers, and hackers in attendance. Ssshhh. Don't tell anyone.



What are Goons?

They are the staff at DEF CON. They have many roles including safety, speaker coordination, vendor room coordination, network operations, et cetera... Please try to be helpful to them if they make requests of you. If any goon tells you to move, please do so immediately as there may be safety issues they are attempting to address.



How can I help out or become a Goon?

The staff at DEF CON has grown organically. All positions have some degree of trust associated with them, so typically new goons are ‘inducted’ by friends of existing goons. There are many random points when goons need help and may ask people for help, generally for helping move stuff or other tasks that don't require high amounts of trust or unsupervised work. Just because you help out doesn't make you a goon. If you really want to be a goon, talk with one and see how much work they actually do (Hint: you may want to enjoy being at DEF CON, not working full-time at it). One year the network group got a new Goon when a networking engineer was needed, and he came to the rescue. The intent behind the goons is not to be elitist, but to have a network of trusted people who can help run the conference - please do not feel upset if you are not chosen to be a goon.



How can I help or participate?

DEF CON is not a spectator sport! Before the con, during, and after there are chances for you to get involved. Before the con you can read about the contests and maybe sign up for one like Capture the Flag. There are artwork contests for shirts and posters. You can practice your lock pick skills, or just get your laptop all locked down and ready to do battle. Organize your .mp3s. Check out the DEF CON Forums to see what other people are up to. If you want to create your own event, you can do that as well - you will not get official space or sanctions, but virtually every official event at DEF CON started out as an unofficial event.



I would love to see XYZ event, how do I make this happen?

Virtually all events at DEF CON were conceived by the attendees. The DEF CON forums are a great place for recruiting help for an event you want to put on, and making sure your efforts aren't being duplicated. If it doesn't require resources from DEF CON (space, namely) you generally don't have to ask anyone’s permission. Most events are unofficial until they've been going on for a couple of years. Please let us know if you have an idea for an event, we may help facilitate or promote it. Email [suggestions at DEF CON dot org] to keep us in the loop.



How can I speak at DEF CON?

You can submit a response to our CFP (call for papers). All entries are read and evaluated by a selection committee. We would love to have your submission. The call for papers usually opens in January and closes mid-May.



I'm press, how do I sign up, why can't I get in for free (I'm just doing my job)?

Please email press[at]defcon[d0t]org if you wish press credentials. Lots of people come to DEF CON and are doing their job; security professionals, federal agents, and the press. It wouldn't be fair to DEF CON attendees if we exempted one group from paying. If you are a major network and plan on doing a two minute piece showing all the people with blue hair, you probably shouldn't bother applying for a press pass - you won't get one. If you are a security writer or from a real publication please submit, and someone will respond with an answer.



I want to sell stuff, how do I do this?

If you want a space in our vendor area, you need to apply. Because of limited space and our attempt to have a diversity of vendors, you may not be able to get a booth. It is wise to think of staffing issues - if you are one person do you want to spend your entire time behind a vendors booth?



What are the different price rates?

Everyone pays the same: The government, the media, the ‘well known hackers’, the unknown script kiddies. The only discount is for Goons and speakers, who get to work without paying for the privilege.



How much is admission DEF CON, and do you take credit cards?

The price for DEF CON 30 is USD$360 cash at the door. We do this for a number of reasons. Paying in cash protects your privacy and we can’t be forced to hand over records we don’t collect. Still, offering online registration for DEF CON Safe Mode taught us we had some attendees who really benefit from the option for things like group orders and expense report requirements.

For those attendees who need a credit card option we’ll continue to offer online ticket sales at shop.defcon.org. There is a $9.66 processing fee for these online transactions. We hope this makes things easier for the community members who need it.



Does my underage child need a badge?

Children under the age of 8 will not need to purchase a badge.



Can I get a discount on DEF CON badges?

DEF CON charges one price regardless of your social status or affiliation. Please know that we depend on attendee income to pay the costs of the conference and don't have sponsors to help defray the expenses.

We sometimes get requests for discounts [students, veterans, children], unfortunately we don't want to try and validate if you are a current student, look at your ID to determine your age, decode military discharge papers, etc.

If you really want to attend DEF CON for free then do something for the con.

You could:
Submit a CFP and be an accepted speaker or workshop instructor.
Work on a contest, event, or village.
Qualify for CTF/Contests that include entry.
Find a team to become a Goon newbie.
Contribute to content, or perform some entertainment.


I need a letter of invite for my visa application, how do I get that?

In most cases, DEF CON can send a signed letter of invite, usually within a few short business days once we have all the info. If you also require verification of housing, we can put you in touch with someone to help you get your hotel stay organized, let us know if you need that.

Along with your request, please email us the following to info(at)defcon(.)org

DEF CON is too expensive, how can I afford it?

DEF CON is cheaper than many concerts, and certainly cheaper than many shows in Vegas. Many people have made an art and science out of coming to DEF CON very cheaply. Here are a couple of tips.

Travel: Buy airfare in advance, go Greyhound, Carpool, hitch-hike. (Note: this may be dangerous and/or illegal.)
Lodging: Share rooms - some people have up to 10 people they share a room with, find a hotel cheaper than the one that the conference is scheduled at, stay up for three days, etc. (note: this can be hazardous to your health.)
Food: Pack food for your trip, go off site to find food, eat in your hotel rooms, and look for cheap Vegas food at Casinos. (Look for deals and specials that are trying to get you in the door to gamble.)
Booze: You don't need to drink. Brew your own and bring it. (It's been done.)
Entrance: Admission can be saved, mow some lawns. Try to go to another 4 day event for cheaper than this that offers so much. We have increased the fees slowly over the years, but also the amount and quality of events have increased.

Inevitably people will try to do some math and pretend that DT gets rich each DEF CON - they seem to lack the ability to subtract.



How many people typically attend DEF CON?

There have been roughly 25-28k attendees in the last few (pre-COVID) years of DEF CON. DEF CON 27 had a record showing with approximately 30,000.



Is there a network at DEF CON?

Why yes, DEF CON is FULLY network-enabled. Now that we've perfected the art of a stable hacker con network, we're ascending to a higher level - we're providing you a network that you feel SAFE in using! Since DEF CON 18 we're WPA2 encrypted over-the-air, with a direct trunk out to the Internet. No peer-to-peer, no sniffing, just straight to the net (and internal servers). We'll provide login credentials at Registration. We know the LTE airwaves will be saturated so we're putting our own cred on the line to give you a net that even we would put our own mobile phones on.

If you're feeling frisky, we'll still have the traditional "open" network for you - bring your laptop (we'd recommend a clean OS, fully patched--you know the procedure) because we don't police what happens on that net. Share & enjoy!



What is the age limit?

People have brought children to DEF CON - it is not recommended to do this unless you are going to constantly supervise them. It is generally an ‘adult’ atmosphere (language, booze, et cetera). If you've never been to DEF CON, you may want to refrain from bringing your children (unless they are demanding that you bring them). While there are no age limits, we have consistently cooperated with parents and/or private investigators who are looking for children that ‘ran away from home’ to go to DEF CON. You will have to be 21 to reserve a room.



What is a DEF CON "Black Badge"?

The Black Badge is the highest award DEF CON gives to contest winners of certain events. CTF winners sometimes earn these, as well as Hacker Jeopardy winners. The contests that are awarded Black Badges vary from year to year, and a Black Badge allows free entrance to DEF CON for life, potentially a value of thousands of dollars.



How can I get a hold of DT? I tried to mail him and haven't seen a response yet.

DT doesn't dislike you, isn't trying to hurt your feelings, and bears you no ill will. The fact is he gets an unmanageable load of mail continually. Mailing him again may elicit a response. Try mailing FAQ (at) DEFCON.ORG if you have a general question that isn't answered here or in the forums.



Is it hot in Vegas?

Yes. Bring sunscreen (high SPF), do not fall asleep near the pool (lest you wake up to sunburn), and do not walk far in the sun unless you are experienced in dealing with extreme heat. The sun is dangerous in Las Vegas. Sleeping in lawn chairs is a sure way to wake up to severe burns in the morning when that bright yellow thing scorches your skin. Drink plenty of water and liquids - remember that alcohol will dehydrate you.



What should I bring?

It depends on what you're going to do at DEF CON. This is discussed in quite some depth on the unofficial DC FAQ, as well as a thread in the DC Forums. You may want to bring fancy (or outrageously silly) clothes for the official Music events, on Friday and Saturday nights, where everyone shows off nifty attire.



How much do rooms cost, and how do I reserve a room?

The DEF CON 30 group room registration is now live! We have room rates at seven hotels, until they run out of rooms in our block.

Follow this link: https://book.passkey.com/go/SHDEF2

Do not worry if the form doesn't immediately show the discounted rate. To verify that you're getting our price you can mouse over the dates you've selected or begin the checkout process.


How much is internet access?

We are looking into this. Free (and possibly more dangerous) internet access is available in the convention area.



Will the hotels broadcast the speeches on their cable system?

DEF CON TV has succcessfully streamed all tracks to all the hotels, and a couple of tracks out to the internet, for several years now. We don't expect this will change!



Will we have DEF CON branded poker chips?

You will have to attend DEF CON to find out.



Will conference attendees have entire floors of hotel rooms to themselves?

Probably not. The hotel is very cooperative in attempting to centralize the DEF CON attendees, for their convenience and ours, but there will be non-DEF CON attendees in hotel rooms next to us.



This FAQ didn't answer my questions, or was unclear, how can I get further information?

Check out the DEF CON Forums to ask follow up questions.
