Welcome to the March 2020 DEFCON 201 Meet Up!

We had this amazing in person Three Year Anniversary meet up with free food, alcohol, raffle prizes, hardware installs and more. Then life realized we were having too much fun and released a plague around the world. While we are still committed to meeting in person, after our state passed some executive orders and a vote online, we have decided to create this special Virtualized meet up!

Join us on live stream, load up Shodan, put the hand lotion next to your laptop and get ready for this social distancing version of our meet up open to all!

Oh, and get ready next week for the PancakeCon Online Security Confrence!

DEFCON 201 Announcements & Code of Conduct

:..>DEFCON 201 will start with various updates about our activities in early 2020, our post CoronaVirus Pandemic measures and an overview of the Code of Conduct linked on our website.

The OpenCovid19 Initiative

:..>By now, we are all aware of the global ongoing pandemic of COVID-19 covering the front page of all newspapers. Whether you are reading this 5 meters away from another human being or at home in self-quarantine, you know it is a necessity to delay the propagation of the virus. All these measures are necessary to enable the health workers to do their job and not be overwhelmed . But, despite all measures governments have been taking around the world, the Health care system might not be able to treat all infected patients. And, even if it could, the absence of efficient treatments will lead to millions of deaths. The goal of the OpenCovid19 initiative as a program is to collectively develop open-source and low-cost tools and methodologies that are safe and easy to use to fight the Covid19 Pandemic. In this talk, we will talk to one of the lead bio-hackers who has created an open-platform for experts and hobbyist around the globe to help solve this pandemic.

:..>Bio: Thomas Landrain: Rebooting Science! ⚗️🛠🌍

Co-Founder and CEO at JOGL.

Member “French National Digital Council” — Co-Piloting the working group on Ecology and Territories

Pwnagotchi: An Epic Retelling Of Making Your Own Hardware Project

:..>Pwnagotchi is an A2C-based “AI” powered by bettercap and running on a Raspberry Pi Zero W that learns from its surrounding WiFi environment in order to maximize the crackable WPA key material it captures (either through passive sniffing or by performing deauthentication and association attacks). This material is collected on disk as PCAP files containing any form of handshake supported by hashcat, including full and half WPA handshakes as well as PMKIDs. Co-Founder of DEFCON 201 GI Jack built this for our future (with many postponed) conventions and gatherings. Learn how he sourced parts, the trials of soldering and programming, our first deployment at PAX East and what you can learn about taking on your own hardware project!

:.>Bio: Bio: GI Jack is one of the Co-Founders of DEFCON 201. He might have seen a Ninja that had built their own hacker variant of Arch Linux known as Ninja OS. You might be able to also find this ninja at:

Browsing The Internet Privately & Securely

:..>When the World Wide Web was built by Tim Berners-Lee (with Al Gore’s Information Super Highway) the only thing w3m, Mosaic and AOL Explorer users had to worry about was getting bumped off the modem via a relative’s ill timed phone call and endless tabletop coasters that were AOL hard disks flooding your mailbox. However in this day and age, with web fingerprinting, index crawlers, DRM, and other intrusive technologies has made the internet a dangerous place to explore. Even worse, many companies intent on selling your data now market their not-so-private features their products offer, turning a fundamental human right into a snake-oil buzzword. In this talk, we will help you navigate the confusing world of Web Browser Privacy & Security aimed for everyone but ideally for beginners. Topics will include selecting the right browser, fortifying said browser to be more secure and privacy focused, privacy focused browsing resources and best internet safety & privacy practices. Topics will also offer a basic overview of web browsers for mobile phones, choosing a VPN and how to use TOR.” As a bonus, our speaker will show off a work-in-progress configuration of a “Red Team” RECON OSINT Firefox configuration that was originally going to be featured at PancakesCon!

He also has a history with NYC 2600, Radio Statler at Hackers on Planet Earth, Phone Losers of America, Museum of Urban Reclaim Spaces and The Yes Men. Find out more about DEFCON 201 at:
