ToorCon has begun!

Check in is now open! We’re at the registration desk by the Emerald Ballroom on Level 2 of the Emerald Plaza Westin (400 W Broadway – not the other Westin that’s 3 blocks away). The reception is at the pool on the 3rd floor from 7pm-9pm. Can’t wait to see you all here!

Workshop Venue Change!

The workshops are kicking off today at 8:30am and have been moved to the 13th floor in the Office Tower at the Emerald Plaza (use the office tower elevators on the other side of the building from the hotel lobby). Continental breakfast will be provided. If you have trouble finding us, ask the concierge or the office tower security desk in the lobby.

Tickets are selling fast, so register today!

SOHOplessly Broken Contest!

Despite being widely distributed and deployed in nearly every modern home and small office, SOHO networking equipment has received surprisingly little attention from security researchers. Yet, these devices facilitate the connectivity and protection (we hope) of millions of end-systems. The critical vulnerabilities that persist in these widely used devices demonstrate an urgent need for deeper scrutiny.

SOHOplessly is a no-holds-barred router hacking competition. There will be three (3) tracks that focus on exploiting vulnerabilities.
Track 0 is a pre-con contest. Track 1 is a capture the flag style contest. Track 2 is a surprise contest that will take place at random times throughout the conference.

Please see the contest page for more information!

PancakeCon? PancakeCon!

If you are brave enough to wake early Sunday, October 26 from 8:30 to 11 am, join us at the 1st Annual PancakeCon! PancakeCon is hell-bent on offering the three best hours of eating gourmet pancakes in an interesting atmosphere of demonstrating technology exploitation, inventive software and hardware solutions, and open discussions of critical InfoSec issues. PancakeCon will be hosted at CyberHive, a nearby incubator and shared workspace dedicated to the building the next generation of cybersecurity products.

More information will be in the program and announced during the conference! PancakeCon.
