    ::DEFCON 201 — CODE OF CONDUCT::


    Welcome to the November 2020 DEFCON 201 Meet Up!

    After a nail biting USA 2020 Election, we have seemed to tilt the scale back to some degree of normalcy. We are glad to evict the cartoonish-level of tyrany out of the White House in the most North East Coast way possible.

    However, let’s not forget what “normalcy” is. Normal was still the subjugation of the US populous. Normal was telling you it’s not your right to own the stuff that you own. Normalcy was censoring others while spreading proproganda like wildfire. Normal was installing backdoors, going to war, and the new normal of a plauge that is coming back to kill us in full force.

    So we decided, f$#k normal, let’s be freaks!

    And to get our freak on, we decided after high demand to revisit virually one of our favorite meeting subjects of all time back in 2017 when we started out. Hacking Sex. Wet ware meets hardware. Dicks, Dongles and The Internet Of Thongs.

    We hope you are ready to relieve your anxiousness by allowing us to blow a load of hacker knowlage all over you in one content packed night. An orgy of data hilighting vurnerable back doors, exposed ports, short-stroking parasentric slots and how prude technologists and politicians are using our squeemish nature to sex to censor us all…and how sex workers on the front lines for digital rights are fighting back with the full force of the true hacker sprirt!

    All activities, chats, talks, workshops and DC 201 insanity will be broadcasted online via our LIVE STREAMS per the new normal!

    The Privacy of Online Dating & Teledildonics

    :..>Many dating application use location to match you up with people in the local area, but this led to the leakage of million’s of people’s exact location. This can cause problems for LGBTQ+ people, especially in parts of the world with poor human rights records, as well as subject people to harassment and exposure. We’ll look at some of the problems we found last year, what has changed, and what you can do to protect yourself. We’ll also briefly see that these problems exist in the sphere of teledildonics...

    ::DEFCON 201 — CODE OF CONDUCT::

    Welcome to the September 2020 DEFCON 201 Meet Up!

    So we are all stuck at home because COVID-19 is the song that will never end. The West Coast is burning. The East Coast is underwater. And in the mist of all of this with a nightmare election coming up…Apple decides to hold an event showing off the overpriced closed-sourced products. Because of course they would.

    That’s why we have decided to take this golden oprotunity to have a DCG 201 meeting theme we have wanted to do for a very long time: Hacking Apple. If you are one of the many people who struggle with XCode and Swift, own an iPhone that won’t have any games besides Apple Arcade, run a Mac that will cost an ARM and a leg, can’t play Fortnite or XCloud on your iOS device or someone who remembers when Newton was the shit, this is the meeting for you. Be prepared for a crazy live stream with limited in person seating watching hackers in New Jersey and all over the world throw a sledgehammer at the screen and break down Apple walled gardened.

    Tim Apple will be proud. #AppleEvent

    Details of the in-person meet below:

    Now, there will be some ground rules here. To meet in person, we will have a hard MAX limit of 20 people, thus you MUST RSVP on EventBrite to be counted.

    You MUST purchase a food or beverage item. Meeting will be outside in the outdoor pen. You MUST have a mask on at ALL TIMES when not eating. You must be 6 feet apart unless you came together in a group. We will provide sanitation measures. Anyone who is a knucklehead will be thrown into the Hudson River with the rest of Florida.

    If you can’t make it or too afraid, RELAX! All activities, chats, talks, workshops and DC 201 insanity will be broadcasted online via our LIVE STREAMS per the new normal! We are so excited to finally do some actual mask-to-mask social distancing AFK and we can’t wait to see you all because we have quite the line up with something for everyone!

    ONLINE: 4 IoT Systems, 4 Threat Modeling Failures

    :..> The IoT is hugely diverse: home assistants, fitness trackers, medical devices, home security, kid trackers, smart TVs, industrial equipment, crypto wallets, car alarms and even sex toys. We’ve seen security and privacy failures in nearly all these systems, some trivial, some serious. In today’s IoT, security failures in these systems might seem trivial, but in 10 years, these systems will be ruling our lives.

    We suspect that the developers of the products failed to predict which threats they needed to protect against. Unless security is considered during the design of these systems, they will never be truly secure.

    We’ll look at 4 practical examples where lessons can be learned:

    • Crypto-wallets that didn’t take into account physical access
    • A telematics unit in a car that allowed us to take control of the corporate network
    • An EV car charger that relied on...
