Time For Something New: Call For Presentations at the Packet Hacking Village

Security education is the mission of the Packet Hacking Village and the Wall of Sheep. We also take great pride in being a welcoming village for newcomers to DEF CON and to the Cyber Security field. We aim to act as a bridge between our visitors' existing knowledge and a better understanding of security topics by providing both knowledge of core fundamental concepts as well as advanced topics. Each year, there are thousands of newcomers into the Cyber Security field --technical or non-technical. We want to make sure that everyone has a solid foundation in Cyber Security. To that end, we're looking for pre-recorded talks in a 10-12 minute, 25-30 minute, OR 45-50 minute length, to teach our viewers something about one of these fundamental topics:

  • Disk structures
  • File systems
  • Core networking concepts
  • Operating Systems: *nix
  • Operating Systems: Windows
  • Operating Systems: macOS
  • Code/cipher/hash fundamentals
  • File analysis
  • Web traffic fundamentals
  • Network capture fundamentals
  • Email fundamentals
  • File/network/system forensics
  • File/network monitoring

We have identified these topics as the fundamental pillars of knowledge in Cyber Security. Our Packet Detective, Packet Inspector, and Capture The Packet events each provide attendees a way to apply knowledge from these topics and more in an engaging learning environment. Our goal is to build a glossary of fundamentals for Cyber Security people of all kinds: students, practitioners, teachers, lawmakers, government officials, and professionals.

Product or vendor related pitches are not welcomed.
