EMERGENCY INFO & HACKER ETIQUETTE AKA HOW NOT TO BE AN ASS

Normally we would put this under the Party section of this guide but we at DCG 201 have made an executive decision to put this right on top due to it’s upmost importance.

Hacker Summer Camp at it’s core are a series of social events for anti-social people. Getting out their and mingling with old friends while making new ones is a core part of the experience at BSides LV, Black Hat USA and DEFCON. And while we like to think of the best of people, putting over 20,000 people in the same place will cause some bad actors to have the dumb. Here are a few tips and resources to survive the trip:

— IT IS ALWAYS OK TO TELL SOMEONE “NO” AND IF THEY PERSIST TO TELL THEM TO FUCK OFF! Never be shy to do this. The ability to refuse something because of your choice is not only you right as a human being but also a core part of the Hacker Ethos that we feel has sadly eroded over time. Just because everybody is drinking, doing drugs and blowing each other to bad music around a pool does not mean you have to. No is always an answer and if you encounter any trouble contact DEFCON GOONFLEET SECURITY or if it’s even more severe, CALL NEVADA AUTHORITIES!

— If you see someone getting harassed verbally, mentally or physical, DON’T BE A WALLFLOWER, HELP. This is how we breed Dark Sims when people sit around and do nothing while horrible people get away with things. Even simply butting into a conversation will help a person in need. If you feel like you can’t do anything yourself, contact DEFCON GOONFLEET SECURITY or NEVADA AUTHORITIES to intervene. You also want to stay around to be a witness to document the incident. The more we look out of each other, the better of a community we will become.

— Remember those burner phones and that circle of trust from Part One? These events and parties is where it will come in handy. NEVER GO TO ANY PARTY OR EVENT ALONE. Always have a buddy looking out for you and vice versa. The more eyeballs, ears and hands the safer you and everyone else will be.

— Please TAKE FREQUENT BREAKS and RE-HYDRATE between intense physical activity at events and parties. Remember even at night, Nevada is very hot and alcohol and other chemicals will dehydrate you.

— If you are going to drink PLEASE EAT FOOD AND DRINK WATER BETWEEN DRINKS. We often talk about how much booze is downed before, during and after these activities but not only do you NOT have to participate but PACING your drinking and eating food while drinking water between said drinks will help reduce your risk of alcohol poisoning and hangover. Also, KNOW YOUR BODY LIMITS. Just because the new groupie you met can drink alcohol shots of 197 Proof (*cough*CoFounderSidepocketAlcholic*cough*) does not mean you have to. Stay with what you know and what you are comfortable with.

— Lastly about drinking and food, NEVER LEAVE YOUR DRINKS AND FOOD ALONE IN PUBLIC. Again, as much as we like to see the good in people, roofies and date rape can and will happen at major public events. If you left a beer out for instance for even 30 seconds without holding it or looking at it, get a new one and trash the old one. If you feel like you are in the process of being roofied, contact your CIRCLE OF TRUST and NEVADA AUTHORITIES.

H@cktivityCon 2022…Because Of Course We F$#king Missed One!

So a month ago, we looked into seeing if H@cktivityCon by HackerOne would happen in the Summer or Fall this year. We didn’t see an update so we skipped it. And not only were they doing it this year, during Hacker Summer Camp but for the FIRST time they were IN VEGAS presenting their talks and activities.

We will now make it a priority (and twist their arm) to have them properly as a guide in 2023.

The good news, for a limited time you can watch a recap on the con below. We also copy-pasta the information from the con so you can see what you missed:

About h@cktivitycon

h@cktivitycon is a HackerOne hosted hacker conference built by the community for the community. For the first time ever, we will be bringing our h@cktitivtycon speakers together in-person to present their talks from Las Vegas! Please tune in to https://www.twitch.tv/hackeronetv to watch!

The GACWR Story: Building a Black Owned Cyber Range

Segun Olaniyan 11:00:00 AM (1 HOUR)

Creating More Black Hackers: Growth Systems for Cybersecurity Enthusiasts

The presentation gives perspective to the systems of growth for cybersecurity starters, students and enthusiasts that are rarely known or mentioned in the cybersecurity field and have helped many professionals grow from newbies to the experts they are today. These are systems that will help cybersecurity students become relevant in the industry as a student; these are systems that will give cybersecurity enthusiasts a voice in the industry, they are capable of giving newbies rapid growth in the industry, I call them Growth Systems for Cybersecurity Enthusiasts.

Alexis Hancock 12:05:00 PM (30 MIN)

“The Man” in the Middle

The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade was a dark, cruel time in the history of much of the Americas. The horrors of slavery still cast their shadow through systemic racism today. One of the biggest obstacles enslaved Africans faced when trying to organize and fight was the fact that they were closely watched, along with being separated, abused, and tortured. They often spoke different languages from each other, with different cultures, and beliefs. Organizing under these conditions seemed impossible. Yet even under these conditions including overbearing surveillance, they developed a way to fight back.The continued fight today is an evolution of that history established from dealing with censorship and authoritarian surveillance. This talk walks through the technology and the tools used to fight back and re-establish connection within the community.

Damian Grant 2:00:00 PM (30 MIN)

DEI in Cybersecurity (Breaking through the barrier, behind the barrier… behind the barrier)

There are no shortage of articles about the worldwide cybersecurity skill gap over the last few years, and opportunities abound for skilled practitioners in the space. Studies have shown, however, that implicit biases abound for black people in STEM fields, and this barrier to entry and advancement is even more pronounced in cybersecurity. During this exploration of the hardships experienced by blacks in cybersecurity, Damian will share his experiences in the field, while highlighting best practices for improving technical skill, vaulting the gatekeepers and finding ways for individuals to thrive in the industry.

Ochuan Marshall 4:00:00 PM (1 HOUR)

The Last Log4Shell Talk You Need

The title is a lie. Log4Shell (CVE-2021–44228) vulnerability is an ongoing IT security crisis because of its widespread reach and impact.

While this is a nightmare for defenders, those of us on the offensive side have an easy RCE to pop a shell.
This talk I briefly touch on impact and demonstrate how to set up a homelab in Minecraft to exploit this vulnerability.
The demo is going to be a homelab setup using vagrant. Essentially you clone the repo to set up an older minecraft server with an older version of java. Then exploitation is as simple as running the payload in a minecraft chat message. If time allows, I’ll add another demonstration with how to do this on a real world system.The discussion/introduction part of the presentation will be split between infosec twitter storytime and some of the effects of log4jShell on organizations.The first part is important for practitioners who want to get good at exploiting the next zero day. The second part is useful for decision makers who want to improve their application security programs and start to think about their software supply chain.

Levone Campbell 10:00:00 AM (45 MN) LIVE TALK

When The “IT” Hits The Fan, Stick To the Plan

Incident Response is a critical process for any organization. The effectiveness of the incident response plan can determine whether or not an organization can sustain and recover from a cyber attack. With the steady rise in cybercrime, petroleum companies have to make sure they have a sound incident response plan in place to address every type of cyber attack. Organization data breaches seem to be in the news everyday now, therefore it is paramount that an organization have a concrete incident response plan in place. As with any process within the organization the incident response plan requires continuous testing and review to ensure it remains effective for the organization. This talk will specifically highlight three critical areas within the incident response plan where most companies fail. This talk will identify the common pitfalls and shortcomings, and also offer some suggestions on how to improve in those areas.

Stephanie Barnes 11:00:00 AM (45 MN)

Cryptocurrency: A Bridge Across the Digital Divide

Forbes points to the number of Black crypto investors be the largest demographic of crypto investors at 23% and to be on track to double to 44% (Hale, 2022). This type of investing provides Minorities with a gateway to not only feel more in control of their wealth, but also an introduction to other emerging technologies such as NFTs and Blockchain. With the current administration looking into developing a digital dollar the headlines have pointed to how this could help undeserved communities that have already adopted digital payment in the form of apps such as Cashapp, Paypal, and Venmo. With the rise in reported incidents in these unregulated applications stealing money and closing accounts the bridge that a digital dollar could be could also turn into another avenue for exploitation of a disenfranchised population if they (we) are not part of the development.

Birhanu Eshete 12:00:00 PM (30 MIN)

State of the Model: Promising Steps and Remaining Challenges Towards Trustworthy Machine Learning

With the fast-paced adoption of Machine Learning (ML) in high-stakes application domains such as autonomous vehicles, healthcare, finance, and criminal justice, its trustworthiness has lately been put under scrutiny. In this talk, we will first highlight security, privacy, transparency, and fairness pitfalls in ML and establish what it takes for ML to be trustworthy. We then dive into promising steps and remaining challenges in the quest towards ML that we will confidently deploy to drive our cars, diagnose our illnesses, or manage our finances.

Hacking Smart Contracts

Nick Gobern 3:00:00 PM (30 MIN)

Threat hunting? Ain’t nobody got time for that…

Hunting the advanced threats hidden in the enterprise networks has always been a complex and difficult task. Due to the variety of attacking means, it is difficult for traditional security systems to detect threats, and even harder to demonstrate value to leadership. This will discuss how to formulate a proper hypothesis to lead a quick efficient hunt, and effectively relay the information to improve a companies security and increase trust with leadership.

Neurodiversity in Cybersecurity: Find Your Competitive Advantage!

GIRLS HACK VILLAGE

Girls Hack Village is a conference village imagined for DefCon 30. 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, Discussions, and Panels.

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 many cybersecurity conferences and girls hack village will give attendees the opportunity to learn about cybersecurity and hacking in a gender-friendly place.

GirlsHackVillage seeks to highlight the female experience as researchers, hackers, engineers, and pentesters within the cybersecurity industry. Our village highlights how the lack of gender equality in the field affects the culture and the experience of women in the industry. We will highlight the contributions of girls/women in the field and discuss how they’ve shaped and contributed to the cyber community.

BlackGirlsHack has partnered with Black Hat USA and has been gifted 25 Expo Passes to attend in person or virtually. Please fill out the information in the linked forum below and provide a brief reason as to why you feel you would benefit from being awarded a Black Hat Expo pass:

VETCON

This year at #VETCON we are taking donations of military gear to help the civilian soldiers in #Ukraine. Check your closets for stuff you no longer need and if you don’t want to bring it, we’ll have a rep from https://bluerose.com there with instructions for where to ship it.

LOCKPICKING @ HACKER SUMMER CAMP

Lock Pick Village @ BSides Las Vegas

Want to try your hand at the art of lockpicking? Come visit the Lockpick Village! We bring the locks and picks. All you’ll need is a sense of curiosity. We’ll also have contests and beginner sessions on both days of the conference. All skill levels are welcome, as volunteers will be on hand to help you get started. Beginner sessions will be held at 11:30 each day. If you’re feeling competitive, drop by for one of the contests held at 16:00 daily!

PHYSICAL PENETRATION & ELECTRONIC ACCESS CONTROL HACKING @ Black Hat USA 2022

RED TEAM ALLIANCE | AUGUST 6–9 | LOCATION: PALM — B, LEVEL 3

Training: https://www.blackhat.com/us-22/training/schedule/index.html#physical-penetration--electronic-access-control-hacking-25837

NOTE: This course will be offered In-Person

Beyond firewalls and network hardening, government and enterprise alike must consider how security infrastructure safeguards digital, material, and human assets. Physical security is foundational to the ability to resist unauthonrized access or malicious threat.

In this training, students will be immersed in the world of mechanical locking systems, door hardware, manipulation and bypassing techniques, PACS tokens, RFID credentials, alarm contacts, tamper switches, door controllers, and backhaul protocols that underpin Physical Access Control Systems (PACS) across the globe. The course provides a holistic and detailed view of modern locking hardware and access control systems and outlines common design limitations that can be exploited.

Red Team members and penetration testers will gain a practical understanding of what physical security looks like in the field, and how to manipulate, bypass, intercept, clone, downgrade, replay, and bypass one’s way through such defenses.

Blue Team members including SOC staff, defenders, designers, and directors will come with away with best practices and technqiues that will resist attacks.

** Every Registrant will go hands-on with our custom-built RFID Training Door Simulators.**

The RFID Door Simulator, colloquially known as the “Building in a Box” is a self-contained unit intended to simulate authentication operations performed by a paired RFID credential reader and an upstream door controller. It features a multi-technology RFID credential reader, an integrated door controller, an OLED display, and a power supply. Enrolled students will practice interacting with a wide array of credential technologies and get hands-on experience with the tools, techniques, and procedures necessary for executing multiple kinds of attacks against PACS environments in the field.

This is a custom hardware unit developed by The CORE Group and not available from any other source.

Those who attend this course will leave with a full awareness of how to best protect buildings and grounds from unauthorized access, as well as how to compromise most existing physical security in order to gain access themselves.

WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE?

Professional Penetration Testers
Security Auditors
Installers, Integrators, and System Maintainers
Security Architects
Critical Infrastructure Decision-Makers

We have three promotional video clips that we’ve put online to help prospective students decide of this course is right for them…

AUDIENCE SKILL LEVEL

Beginner/Intermediate

STUDENT REQUIREMENTS

A laptop capable of running Windows 10 natively (not in a VM) with local admin rights.

While the training is virtual, students must provide a shipping address to receive the required hardware kit accompanying this course.

Interactive participation is required during the course

WHAT STUDENTS SHOULD BRING

If students have any lockpicking, RFID, or physical entry tools, that’s fine… but a full suite of tools, practice locks, and other equipment will be provided.

Students will be required to be ready to participate with a computer natively running Windows 10 with local administrative rights. Virtual Machines and other operating systems have historically performed inconsistently with the software being used. Students may bring a Linux or MacOS system as well, but those doing so should ensure that they have ready access to a native Windows 10 machine if needed.

Pwning RFID From 6ft Away

Traditional RFID badge cloning methods require you to be within 3 feet of your target. So how can you conduct a physical penetration test and clone a badge if you must stay at least 6 feet from a person? Over the past two years, companies have increasingly adopted a hybrid work environment, allowing employees to partially work remotely which has decreased the amount of foot traffic in and out of a building at any given time. This session discusses two accessible, entry-level hardware designs you can build in a day and deploy in the field, along with the tried-and-true social engineering techniques that can increase your chances of remotely cloning an RFID badge. Langston and Dan discuss their Red Team adventures and methods that can be used beyond a social distancing era. This presentation is supplemented with files and instructions that are available for download in order to build your own standalone gooseneck reader and wall implant devices!

The least secure biometric lock on Earth

I demonstrate how to defeat a biometric padlock via USB with a laptop, or with your bare hands, or even with a Defcon badge. While flipping through products a biometric lock caught my attention. It mentioned a back-up “Morse code” feature for unlocking it — a series of 6 short or long presses, suggesting there were only 64 possible keys. Surely it couldn’t be that easy… But wait, there’s more! It had another backup unlock feature: a USB port and an app that can unlock it with a PIN, and a default PIN set for bonus stupidity. I had a feeling this was just the tip of the terrible-security-iceberg. I will demonstrate how to defeat this lock with some simple tools, with just your bare hands, and with a USB attack.

SIGNAL CAPTURED!

On MARCH 20, 2021, DEF CON CHINA PARTY IS COMING! Dear geeks, please pay attention!

Join the first all-VR online conference in the history of DEF CON and start the future Cyberworld in advance!
After MORE THAN 20 MONTHS OF LONG WAITING, DEF CON CHINA PARTY, JUST BELATEDLY, LIVED UP TO EXPECTATIONS.

It’s time for the Defcon 30 version of the Cycle Override Defcon Bike Ride!

The date of this years bike ride is Friday, AUGUST 12th, 2022 at 6:00am PST.

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdxF1NoIpzCMCgd_fAGh2U-vcF7h0NTvFGDi0KUiFo0jd17JQ/viewform?usp=sf_link

Rout: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Trek+Bicycle+Las+Vegas+West,+South+Fort+Apache+Road,+Las+Vegas,+NV/Las+Vegas+Cyclery,+10575+Discovery+Dr,+Las+Vegas,+NV+89135/@36.118811,-115.3202082,15z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x80c8bf4d3c88f987:0x39e2011acf7f12dc!2m2!1d-115.2974863!2d36.1164854!1m5!1m1!1s0x80c8c0862fa5e5db:0xf8b9ecbea1e457eb!2m2!1d-115.3246309!2d36.1221615!3e0

This is just so we can get a count and arrange comms leading up to the event. It will also give us your email so we can blast out any details needed pre ride, or at 5:25am on August 9th.

Here’s the deal — we have partnered with Las Vegas Cyclery in Las Vegas for our ride. Yes — they will throw your clipless pedals and seat posts on if you insist. They have an assortment of bikes.

Bike rental is first come first serve. You can always ship out your bike for about $100 each way on most airlines. We’ve had 50+ people before and they can usually get you what you want.

Here’s what YOU have to do:

You need to go here and reserve your ride. We recommend you pay the $10 extra for insurance. You will need to pay with a credit card. Then submit the Google Form here if you haven’t already. FYI: the bike shop will put a hold on your credit card for the value of the bike and release it when you return the bike. This could be a lot for some of the road bikes (up to $4500). Get the insurance.

When you reserve your bike (after payment) — put in your name followed by (Defcon). You will be asked to sign a waiver via an email that comes at the same time as your confirmation.

Use this chart based on your height and inseam to figure out your size and fill the comment box out accordingly:

From mcghies.com

You alone are solely responsible for your bike reservation. Las Vegas Cyclery is aware that we are running this event and will support us, but it’s on you to make sure you are all set with a bike.

THE ROUTE

NOTE: This ride may be at a higher altitude than you are used to. (2600–3800 ft)

OK — last piece the route — you can see the route here. This is the same route as last year (and the year before, and the year before that). Basically the route is slightly uphill out — and mostly downhill back. It’s looking like we’ll have a car heading up the back. There may be a bigger loop for those interested — we’ll let you know soon (basically taking the scenic loop around and catching up w/the group on your way back) — but it will likely be unofficial.

We are looking for sponsors so let us know if you are aware of anyone interested in throwing in some schwag or some cash to help support this ride. It will be used for hydration.

What do I do next?

Once you reserve your bike — all you have to do is wait for Defcon 30! Oh and keep riding!

Cheers!

Defcon Ham Radio Fox Hunting Contest

In the world of amateur radio, groups of hams will often put together a transmitter hunt (also called “fox hunting”) in order to hone their radio direction finding skills to locate one or more hidden radio transmitters broadcasting. The Defcon Ham Radio Fox Hunt will require participants to locate a number of hidden radio transmitters broadcasting at very low power which are hidden throughout the conference. A map with rough search areas will be given to participants to guide them on their hunt. Additional hints and tips will be provided throughout Defcon at the contest table to help people who find themselves stuck. This contest is designed to be an introduction to ham radio fox hunting and as such will be simple to participate in and all people who participate will be guided towards successful completion!

Beverage Cooling Contest

In person only
Friday 1100–1400

It’s DEFCON 30 and the world is a tumultuous place. Maybe Putan has invaded NATO. Maybe China has invaded Taiwan or doubled down on its bid to claim the oddly sack-shaped “nine dash line”. I think Pooh Bear may be trying to compensate for something. Whatever the current events, I’m going to claim WWIII is right around the corner and you should be prepared! Prepared to chill your beverage that is. If the world is ending, do you really want to see it out with a warm beverage!? I thought not! If I’m going out in a nuclear hellfire I want it to be with ice cold suds. So come on down and let’s get prepped!

  • Same categories (hacked and unlimited) as last time. Bring a contraption for the unlimited class or build it at the event for hacked.
  • The supply store with dry ice, regular ice, duct tape, and maybe rubbing alcohol if I can find it will be available.

Rules,

Beverage will come to you in a red solo cup. You must bring the beverage back to me in that cup for judging.

Target temp is 34F or 1C.

General rules remain the same,

  • Thou shalt have a DEFCON “badge”.
  • Thou shalt not have more then 3 people on a team at the table during qualification runs. Larger teams are allowed for setup but only 3 operators during qualifying runs.
  • Thou shalt dispose of thine own test fluids.
  • Thou shalt not used a commercial pre-built unit. You must build your own contraption
  • Thou shalt not adulterate the beverage! No pouring it over ice, no mixing in cold fluids, no pouring over dry ice, no adding liquid nitrogen etc etc..
  • Thou shalt not excessively endanger the event. If your contraption is flammable, contains compressed gasses, is otherwise hazardous you will need to explain to me how you have mitigated the risks and I will make a final determination. So please, if flammable, have an extinguisher, if it contains pressurized gasses over a few psi, please have completed a hydro static test of at least 2x times the max expected operating pressure and have a safety relief valve at no more then 1.5x! Note CO2 can go solid in valves when vented so keep that in mind. This is an indoor event, venting hydrogen fluoride is a no go. That said, we have never had to disqualify someone and that will remain a fact so lone as everyone uses common sense! Lets do this!
  • Thou shalt have fun! Seriously, don’t fuck this one up. Last thing we need is some damn talking ponies showing up and bringing all the bronies to the yard. I lived in Baltimore during the dark years, I don’t need that.

Finally, as with every year if you provide me a sub 4 kelvin beer that you chilled at the event you automatically get first place, my eternal love and admiration, and IDK a drone or something. I’ll have to figure out the prize for this one on the fly because nobody is actually going to do this. TO NOTE the method must be repeatable, no venting large amounts of helium!

Crack & Compile

Twitter: https://twitter.com/CrashAndCompile
Website: https://crashandcompile.org/

What happens when you take an ACM style programming contest, smash it head long into a drinking game, throw in a mix of our most distracting helpers, then shove the resulting chaos incarnate onto a stage? You get the contest known as Crash and Compile.

Teams are given programming challenges and have to solve them with code. If your code fails to compile? Take a drink. Segfault? Take a drink. Did your code fail to produce the correct answer when you ran it? Take a drink. We set you against the clock and the other teams. And because our “Team Distraction” think watching people simply code is boring, they have taken it upon themselves to be creative in hindering you from programming, much to the enjoyment of the audience. At the end of the night, one team will have proven their ability, and walk away with the coveted Crash and Compile trophy.

Crash and Compile is looking for the top programmers to test their skills in our contest. Can you complete our challenges? Can you do so with style that sets your team ahead of the others? To play our game you must first complete our qualifying round. Gather your team and see if you have the coding chops to secure your place as one of the top teams to move on to the main contest.

Qualifications for Crash and Compile will take place Friday from 10am to 3pm online at https://crashandcompile.org/ You may have up to two people per team. (Having two people on a team is highly suggested) Of the qualifiers, nine teams will move on to compete head to head on the contest stage.

DEFCON Darknet 2022

Website: https://darknet-ng.network/

Darknet-NG is an In-Person Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMO-RPG), where the players take on the Persona of an Agent who is sent on Quests to learn real skills and gain in-game points. If this is your first time at DEF CON, this is a great place to start, because we assume no prior knowledge. Building from basic concepts, we teach agents about a range of topics from Lock-picking, to using and decoding ciphers, to Electronics 101, just to name a few, all while also helping to connect them to the larger DEF CON Community. The “Learning Quests” help the agent gather knowledge from all across the other villages at the conference, while the “Challenge Quests” help hone their skills! Sunday Morning there is a BOSS FIGHT where the Agents must use their combined skills as a community and take on that year’s challenge! There is a whole skill tree of personal knowledge to obtain, community to connect with and memories to make! To get started, check out our site https://darknet-ng.network and join our growing Discord Community!

DEF CON 30 Chess Tournament

Chess, computers, and hacking. In the 18th century, the Mechanical Turk appeared to play a good game, but there was a human ghost in the shell. Some of the first computer software was written to play chess. In 1997, world champion Garry Kasparov lost to Deep Blue, but he accused IBM of cheating, alleging that only a rival grandmaster could make certain moves.

At DEF CON 30, we will run a human chess tournament with a “blitz” time control of 5 minutes on each player’s clock, in a Swiss-system format. In each round, match pairings are based on similar running scores. Everyone plays the full tournament, and the winner has the highest aggregate score.

The Las Vegas Chess Center (LVCC) will manage the tournament. To help crown the best chess player at DEF CON 30, we will register the rated players first.

It’s our sixth year but since we had to be virtual last year this will be our 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY show of “Whose Slide Is It Anyway?”! We’re an unholy union of improv comedy, hacking and slide deck sado-masochism.

Our team of slide monkeys will create a stupid amount of short slide decks on whatever nonsense tickles our fancies. Slides are not exclusive to technology, they can and will be about anything. Contestants will take the stage and choose a random number corresponding to a specific slide deck. They will then improvise a minimum 5 minute / maximum 10 minute lightning talk, becoming instant subject matter experts on whatever topic/stream of consciousness appears on the screen.

Whether you delight in the chaos of watching your fellow hackers squirm or would like to sacrifice yourself to the Contest Gods, it’s a night of schadenfreude for the whole family.

Oh, and prizes. Lots and lots of prizes.

DC30 Scavenger Hunt

Twitter: https://twitter.com/defconscavhunt
Website: https://www.defconscavhunt.com/

DEF CON Scavenger Hunt

Here is our description:

The DEF CON Scavenger Hunt is back for the 25th hunt. We are gearing up to once again catch Las Vegas with its pants down #pantslessvillage. This year, we return to in-person only operations with up to 5 people per team and table submissions.

For those new to DEF CON, or otherwise uninitiated, the DEF CON Scavenger Hunt is regarded by many as the best way to interact with the con. We do our best to encourage you to challenge your comfort zone, meet people, and otherwise see and do a bit of everything that DEF CON 30 has to offer. For those who have aspirations to become more involved with DEF CON in the future, many of our veteran contestants include goons, speakers, and contest organizers.

So, how does a scavenger hunt run for 25 years? As this is DEF CON, this is not your ordinary scavenger hunt. The list is open to interpretation, it is a hacker con after all, so hack the list. Because how you interpret the list is entirely out of our hands, we have posted trigger warnings. You will be finding and doing a variety of things, it is up to you to convince the judges whatever you are turning in meets the criteria and is worth the points.

You don’t have to devote all of your time to play and have fun, come turn in a couple items and enjoy yourself. If you want to win however, you will have to scavenge as much as you can over the weekend. While the hunt starts on Friday morning, with determination and a lack of sleep, we have seen people start at 2AM on Saturday night and place. Likewise, if you don’t play well with others, we have seen single-players also place. In other words, we work very hard to keep the barrier to entry as low as possible. You don’t need to be some binary reversing wizard, and there’s no qualifier to compete, you can just show up and win if you want it enough.

The hunt was started by Pinguino at DEF CON 5 simply to avoid being bored; there was no hunt at DEF CON 8, for those doing math. In the intervening years, to further avoid boredom, we have been out scavenging and went from having a simple cardboard sign to a truly mesmerizing table.

So come to the scav hunt table in the contest area (it’s hard to miss us) with a team name ready. Once you get a list, your assignment is to turn in as many items as you can before noon on Sunday. The team with the most points wins. Items are worth more points the sooner you turn them in, so come on down and turn in frequently.

We want to thank Pinguino, Grifter, Siviak , Salem, all of the judges, and all of the players that have made it possible for us to host the 25th DEF CON Scavenger Hunt.

The DEF CON 30 Scavenger Hunt is brought to you by DualD, EvilMoFo, Kaybz, Sconce, Shazbot, Zhora.
THE RULES:
1: the judges are always right
2: not our problem
3: make it weird
4: don’t disappoint the judge(s)
5: team name, item number, present your item

If you capture pictures or video of items from our list happening, or have some from previous years, please send it to us via email scavlist@gmail.com
