IoT Village's contests are brought to you by SOHOpelessly Broken™, the first-ever router hacking contest at DEF CON. The ISE research that inspired the SOHOpelessly Broken™ contests delivered 56 CVEs to the infosec community. Over the years at DEF CON, IoT Village has served as the platform to showcase and uncover hundreds of new vulnerabilities in connected devices.
In this four-time black badge CTF, participants compete against one another as teams (or alone!) by exploiting a network of off-the-shelf IoT devices. These devices all have known vulnerabilities, but to successfully exploit these devices requires knowledge of networking and competency in exploit development. The IoT Village CTF is a great experience to learn more about security and test your skills to compete for fun and prizes. Exploit as many devices as possible during the event and the top three teams will be rewarded.
The IoT Village Hacking Playground is a set of quick, hands-on labs developed to teach the tools and techniques for discovering and exploiting some of the common weaknesses found in IoT devices and Bluetooth Low Energy. Whether you're a penetration tester that has never hacked IoT devices or even someone that has never hacked anything, these self-guided labs will introduce the audience to the world of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and the security issues that can plague BLE smart devices. Participants will get a chance to perform real world analysis of BLE smart devices and perform attacks to control these devices. Students work at their own pace following our IoT Hacking 101 guides, and instructors are on hand to provide assistance as needed and answer any questions.
IoT Village hosts presentations in both the virtual and physical spaces for attendees to learn from industry leaders in the IoT security industry and beyond. In the past, we have had speakers from organizations such as Dell, Cisco, Intel, and Rapid7 that have shared innovative research and live demos with attendees, covering the hottest topics and trends in the security space. IoT Village reaches audiences from around the world who are able to interact with our presentations on Twitch, YouTube, or in the physical space. Submit to our newest CFP
