DEF CON in the News: Voting Village Edition
3 bags designs matching and shoes green MM1006 Lovely lemon bowknot Posted 8.22.18
4 senators sent a bipartisan appeal to @essvote urging the vote-tech firm to engage with the independent security research community. They asked Election Systems and Software to make voting machines available for testing and to share the results to increase transparency.
“Election agencies must be able to make informed decisions about what election equipment will help them conduct secure elections, and independent testing helps both election agencies and vendors.”
This is why we have a Voting Village.
We approve this message.
First Early Release Video from DEF CON 26!
shoes MM1006 Lovely 3 and bowknot lemon green bags matching designs Posted 8.18.18
For your first post-DC26 (and pre-DC27!) weekend, here's the first video release - Rob Joyce, Senior Advisor for Cybersecurity Strategy at the NSA giving his presentation 'NSA Talks Cybersecurity'.
From the abstract:
"The National Security Agency (NSA) has authorities for both foreign intelligence and cyber security. This unique position gives NSA insights into the ways networks are exploited and the methods that are effective in defending against threats. Over time, NSA has adapted the focus of its security efforts and continues to evolve with technologies and the adversaries we face. The talk will look back at some of the inflection points that have influenced NSA and US Government cybersecurity efforts and look at what is necessary to stay safe in the new environment."
As always, enjoy and share widely.
Caesars Palace Update
A team from DEF CON management met with Caesars on Tuesday. They are looking into the reports we presented, and we’ll share what we can as those investigations play out.
Here’s an overview of the current policy as shared with us:
1. DND tag on the door too long triggers a security visit.
2. That security visit is supposed to be by hotel security staff who are clearly identifiable as hotel security staff.
3. That visit should be comprised of a visual survey of the main segments of the hotel room, with no fiddling about in personal belongings.
This means that entering rooms and taking a quick look around does not violate the hotel’s policies.
But it also means that reports of opening closed bags, confiscation of personal effects, and reluctance to self-identify and/or allow guests to verify the legitimacy of the security officers all fall well outside of the policy.
Please know we are not letting this go. We are sympathetic to the new terrain major hotels find themselves in, but our main commitment is to our community. We intend to stay on this until we’re satisfied these issues are resolved for next year.
Updates as we get them.
DEF CON 26 is a Wrap!
Just like that, DEF CON 26 is in the books. We want to thank all of you for making such a success of our little hacker party every year - there is truly no community anywhere like the DEF CON community.
The Dark Tangent announced in closing ceremonies that next year we'll be back at Paris/Bally's. Also a bit of Planet Hollywood. Even more space, but less exposure to deadly solar radiation. We're already planning ways to use it all.
This was a big year for us. We doubled the villages. We grew the workshops. We pumped up demo labs and contests, and we even learned how to set up the crazy lightshow required by the mighty Juno Reactor - which you will get to see shortly, since they let us record their set. (Yay Juno Reactor!) Also, we did that thing in Beijing that went so nice we're doing it twice.
We're gonna take everything we learned from this year's crazy expansions, fine-tune things and bring all that new wisdom to DEF CON 27. If you have ideas, email@example.com stands ready to accept them.
Thank you for all that you share with us, all of your enthusiasm and love that animates everything that happens here. Congratulations to everyone who won something, or learned something, or tried something weird and new. Cheers to all our old friends and our brand new ones. We love you, and we can't wait to get together with you next year.

DEF CON 26 ATTENDEE REPORTED INCIDENT POLICY
As a followup to my last post we realized that if we were hoping people would emulate our policies at other conferences we may as well release our attendee incident reporting policy as well. The version given to all the DEF CON Goons is the same as below but also includes confidential reporting phone numbers.
ATTENDEE REPORTED INCIDENT POLICY
DEF CON does not tolerate harassment of any kind, be it racial, sexual, physical, political, intellectual, or emotional. Every Goon shall take each report by an attendee seriously, and not dismiss any of them. Never turn an attendee away. It is not a Goon’s duty to judge anything that an attendee says, regardless of opinions of the attendee, the person they’re reporting, or the reported issue itself.
Reported/Observed Harassment or Assault
When an attendee reports harassment or assault to any Goon follow this procedure:
1. Get a second Goon to be with you to listen to the report.
2. Have one goon contact a SOC goon via the SOC Contact Procedures
3. Make a warm hand off with the attendee to the SOC Department.
4. Let the SOC conduct their investigation and handle the incident from there.
5. Be available to answer any questions from the SOC or venue security.
Interaction with Social and Traditional Media
wedge Hottest wedge Hottest sneakers Leather Leather 7dEwSx1S DO NOT SHARE photos or videos. Please let the responding SOC GOONS know if you have any video or pictures, they may end up being evidence, but out of context could cause problems.
During or after an incident, you may be asked to comment on the situation. DO NOT make any comments to reporters, and do not post about the incident on social media. As a Goon, the media will treat anything you say as an official statement from DEF CON. Commenting prematurely before we understand the situation could cause more confusion or reveal identities that should remain confidential so please refrain from speculating and work with SOC / PRESS to help them understand what happened.
Refer all media inquiries to the DEF CON Press Department (firstname.lastname@example.org or send them to the press room)
DEF CON 26 Support Resources!
In my last post about the DEF CON Code of Conduct, I mentioned that I wanted to make sure that the community had all the tools necessary to get involved and report problems when they arise.
In this post, my last before the con, I'll talk about some of the new efforts we are deploying for DEF CON 26. It will be our first year for some of these, so we are looking for feedback. You will notice a theme of transparency, appropriate given the theme of this year's con!
NEW WAYS TO REPORT ISSUES: The DEF CON Support Hotline
You can reach DEF CON staff during normal hours of operation (8am to 4am) to anonymously report any behavior violating our code of conduct or to find an empathic ear by calling +1 (725) 867-7255. Trained community volunteers will be standing by to help any attendees.
You can still report issues by going to any Info Booth or talking to any SOC Goon, but sometimes you may not want to be walking around in person with a problem, and so this year we have added a phone option.
NEW SUPPORT RESOURCES:
We are collaborating with several organizations including Kick at Darkness, The Rape Crisis Center Las Vegas, and the Nevada Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence to provide expert resources for survivors, including dedicated support for LGBTQ+. When you call the Hotline you will reach DEF CON community Goons trained to help in these areas.
NEW WAYS TO IDENTIFY GOONS:
In the past there has been some confusion by attendees with what Goon they were actually talking with.
New for DEF CON 26 Goons should all have visible patches with their nickname on them so it is easier to remember who you talk to about what. The name patches should be attached to the front of the Goon's lanyards and be more visible than the back of a shirt that might be covered by a backpack.
Please use the name on the patch if you have any feedback on Goons, good or bad. Feedback can be sent to email@example.com, written and dropped off at registration, or if serious enough called into the Hotline.
MORE DETAILED TRANSPARENCY REPORT:
Based on the positive community response to our closing ceremony transparency report, we plan to do this every year and hope other conferences do as well.
As people get comfortable reporting issues I expect the numbers to increase, and only by facing these issues head on can we hope to prevent them. It requires courage to speak truth to power, or to report something that is unpleasant in your community, but together we can make things better.
See everyone soon!

Less than 2 weeks to DEF CON 26 - how about a little treat to get you in the mood? Head over to the DEF CON Media Server for a sweet video and a single from DEF CON favorites Skittish and Bus, straight from the DC26 Soundtrack.
Get hyped, fam. We're in the home stretch.
DEF CON Code of Conduct
When I designed the updated absorb men sport camouflage sneaker running shock shoes wC6q61An in 2015, I had a few goals in mind. Make it simple to understand, express in broad strokes what kind of behavior is not acceptable, and don't be too specific.
I wanted it to act as a template for other conferences, if they chose to do so. It was legally reviewed by our outside law firm and a specialist. In 2018, it's looking like it may get seriously crash tested.
The Code of Conduct assumes people are acting in good faith and not creating intentionally elaborate, dishonest or disingenuous claims of harm. "Ah ha! This is where the bad actors will attack the CoC" you may be thinking.
As a conference of hackers, our CoC is intentionally flexible: like a spoon in the matrix. We describe generally what is not acceptable as opposed to trying to enumerate 42 different bad behaviors.
Besides the CoC, DEF CON has several structural factors that are to our advantage when dealing with people intent on disruption. This is not our first conference, and as such we have a department dedicated to dealing with this problem. We have also had time to plan with hotel and casino security should we need their involvement. We take this issue very seriously and choose to err on the side of removing people, rather than allow them to spoil the conference for those who just want to contribute in a positive way.
Finally, I have always said that DEF CON is what you make of it. I want to make sure our community has all the tools necessary to identify and report unacceptable behavior. Together, we will have all the pieces in place to act quickly and professionally, no matter what the issue is.

Many people love parties. Facts.
If you are one of those party-loving people, this update will fill up your smile tank. The Parties and Meetups Page is LIVE! Use it to learn all about the DC 26 party/meetup scene. Then, when the time is right, party with other partiers. Or meet up with people who share your interests.

Friends of Bill W at DEF CON 26
For all those Friends of Bill W. looking for a meeting, or just a quiet moment to regroup from the Vegas of it all, we have you covered. There are meetings throughout DEF CON - Noon and five pm Thursday through Saturday and Noon on Sunday. The location is the same as last year, in Office 4 Behind the DEF CON Info Booth.
Stop by and refresh yourself. We'll be here.
Contests and Events at DEF CON 26 posted!
Now that you’ve had a whole day to absorb the epic Village list, we’ve got some more goodies for you. The Contests and Events page is now LIVE, and it’s also quite a bit to take in. Ranging from the straightforward elegance of the Tin Foil Hat Challenge to the complexity of an Industrial Control Systems CTF competition, there’s contests here for just about any hacker discipline, and every level of skill or experience. Contests are also a great way for the shyer among us to beat the icebreaker blues and get right into some fun with a bunch of likeminded strangers.
The more extroverted attendees can still opt for a Charity Mohawk or the cringetastic glory of Hacker Karaoke.
Block off a little time for pre-con recon and make a plan to make sure you get to sample widely from the smorgasbord of C&E offerings.
Our reunion draws ever closer, fam. Get amped.
DEF CON 26 is less than a month away, and the DC26 Villages page is live and ready for your attention! Bring a snack, though - there’s a lot of villages this year. Twenty-eight (28!) villages, covering a pretty staggering array content.
Internet of Things
Crypto and Privacy

Voting Machine Hacking
Mobile Museum of Vintage Technology
CAAD (Competition on Adversarial Attacks and Defenses)

Industrial Control Systems
Chances are there’s a few things in that list you want to level up on.
As always, the Villages are generated by the interest and effort of DEF CON Community members looking to share their interests and obsessions with you. Come through and show them some love and learn something new. If your obsession isn’t represented, maybe it’s time to write up a proposal for DEF CON 27!
