IoT & RFID Village
RFID Village – Presented by Loudmouth Security
RFID Village was created to bring awareness to the security (or lack thereof) of different RFID technologies. Visit the RFID village to learn about RFID access control systems, payment cards and other uses of RFID technologies today. Learn through hands-on interaction how to clone an access control badge, or dump the memory contents of a simple payment card. Attendees should leave the village with a better understanding of what makes some RFID technologies better than others, and how to use RFID technologies securely.
IoT Village – Created by ISE & Presented by Loudmouth Security and Epyc Security
Created for DefCon 23 by security consulting and research firm Independent Security Evaluators (“ISE”), IoT Village delivers advocacy for and expertise on security advancements in Internet of Things devices. In 2018, the IoT Village launched an initiative to create Partner IoT Villages to expand the reach of IoT Village and bring awareness of IoT security issues to more security conferences around the world.
This Partner IoT Village will be hosting two contest tracks:
The Zero-Day track is focused on the discovery and demonstration of new exploits (0-day vulnerabilities). This track relies on the judging of newly discovered attacks against embedded electronic devices. Devices that are eligible for the contest can be found here and you can start submitting entries now! The winners who score the highest on their judged entries will be rewarded with cash prizes.
In the IoT CTF, players compete against one another by exploiting off-the-shelf IoT devices. These 12+ devices all have known vulnerabilities, but to successfully exploit these devices requires lateral thinking, knowledge of networking, and competency in exploit development. CTFs are a great experience to learn more about security and test your skills, so join up in a team (or even by yourself) and compete for fun and prizes! Exploit as many as you can and the top three teams will be rewarded.
