ToorCon 19 — 2017

Aug 28th – Sep 3, 2017 — ToorCon San Diego 19

ToorCon 19 is fast approaching this year! For this year, the dates have been moved up, so if you haven’t yet picked up your tickets, then please head here. Workshops are filling up quickly, and if you wait until September to buy your conference tickets for TC 19, then you’ll only be looking at TC++…

Workshops now extend up to 4 days this year, and more information can be found on the ToorCon San Diego Workshop Page.

If you are looking to attend the 2017 ToorCon Deep Knowledge Seminars, seating is limited, but there is still time to sign up!

And, if you are just attending the weekend Conference component, you can find the talks you will want to look forward to on the ToorCon San Diego Conference page. Remember to buy your tickets now, before the price increases at the door!

We look forward to seeing you in a few weeks!

JUNE 20-24, 2018. Cabin sales went fast, but there are still general admission available!

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.
