Lockpick Village

DEF CON Lockpicking Village image

Want to tinker with locks and tools the likes of which you’ve only seen in movies featuring police, spies, and secret agents? Then come on by the Lockpick Village, run by The Open Organization Of Lockpickers, where you will have the opportunity to learn hands-on how the fundamental hardware of physical security operates and how it can be compromised.

The Lockpick Village is a physical security demonstration and participation area. Visitors can learn about the vulnerabilities of various locking devices, techniques used to exploit these vulnerabilities, and practice on locks of various levels of difficultly to try it themselves.

Experts will be on hand to demonstrate and plenty of trial locks, pick tools, and other devices will be available for you to handle. By exploring the faults and flaws in many popular lock designs, you can not only learn about the fun hobby of sport-picking, but also gain a much stronger knowledge about the best methods and practices for protecting your own property.

Car Hacking Village

Car Hacking Village is an interactive, hands-on experience. There you can use vehicle network tools, software, and electronic control modules to learn or practice vehicle hacking. Connect to cars where you don't have to worry about breaking.

Bring your laptop and RF tools to play our Def Con China CTF.

Learn about Key Fobs, CAN Bus, Automotive Ethernet, and vehicle electronics. The CHV will host several hands on work shops throughout the day, please check out the village or for information.

Recon Village

Come join us for hardware hacking, teaching, learning, and exploration. We help you make your own use for things. We provide the tools and supplies for your hardware hacking pleasure; our volunteers help facilitate that. We might not have every tool under the sun, but we can help cobble something together in order to break, make, and repurpose.

Packet Hacking Village

Bits and Blocks

At Bits and Blocks we showcase networks built on blockchain technology. Applications controlling assets with distributed transactions are examined. Mandarin speakers and English speakers are welcome to experience a free blockchain workshop for beginners in the Bits and Blocks village.

Developments at BAT (Baidu, Alibaba, Tencent) as well as IBM, Amazon, and Opensource projects like cryptocurrencies and the Hyperledger are explained. Please come to Bits and Blocks to share your blockchain experience and meet other security engineers.

For advanced hackers, Bits and Blocks features detailed guidance on the Schnorr signature algorithm, the cryptographic Merkle tree, and confidential transactions. Several hardware projects showcase developments in device driven blockchain applications.

BCOS Blockchain Village

As innovations in Blockchain Technology are making new breakthroughs every day, we have a lot to catch up on security front. Blockchain Village at DEF CON brings the latest of cool and exciting research, breaches, hacks, discussions, innovations and papers with hands workshop all focused on Blockchain Security.

VXCON Village

VXCON (Variety eXploitation) Village is held by VXRL Hong Kong. VXRL is founded by a group of passionate security researchers and white-hat hackers in Hong Kong. Our team has deep expertise in software and hardware security, and we have hands-on domain knowledge in several vertical industries. Our mission is to make the cyberspace a safe place for the future. Our village this time will cover not only chip-off technique but alos some hardware like SMD badge soldering skill. It is an in-depth hand-on playground.

AI Village

Artificial Learning techniques are becoming more prevalent in core security technologies like malware detection and network traffic analysis. Their 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.

Baidu mesaTEE

Curious on Intel SGX? Come and join us at the MesaTEE Village! Learn anything you want to know about Intel SGX and secure SGX programming in Rust or Python. Lots of fun with hands-on experiments and challenges on MesaTEE. Surprising gifts for challenge winners!

BugZee Soldering Village

Bugzee Soldering village logo

BugZee soldering Village is here to teach soldering and basic electronics in the most creative and fun way possible. Since hackers love bugs, we took inspiration from nature and OWASP logo to make an electronic rendition of a bee. We call it BugZee and it's our tribute to the OWASP community. Its entirely made out of electronic components and stands tall on its resistor legs. When soldered and powered to life, it moves around making a buzzing sound and glows wings in the dark. It's very intuitive and not too technical for anyone and everyone who wants to learn to solder or just wants to have a physical rendition of OWASP hacking bug.

Black Window

Black Window village logo

Black window village offer the basic physical penetration teaching for participant. We also build the model office for the participant to try the physical penetration. Content include the least of bypassing infrared alerts, drop the detectaphone, stealing the secret files and so on.

You can defend better only when you know how to attack. Physically experiencing the physical penetration protection helps protect the property of your individual and your enterprise.
