Organized 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. IoT Village hosts talks by expert security researchers who dissect real-world exploits and vulnerabilities and hacking contests consisting of off-the-shelf IoT devices.
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 113 new vulnerabilities in connected devices.
Follow both ISE (@ISEsecurity) and IoT Village (@IoTvillage) on Twitter for updates on talks, contests, and giveaways.

RSAC is looking for 30 minute talks that demonstrate exploits in a visual manner and/or can illustrate the narrative of an attack and its impact on businesses/institutions. RSAC also wants to embrace any interactive elements you might be able to develop. Our area provides a more intimate space and possibilities for crowd engagement is high. Abstracts for work in progress are acceptable at this stage of submission. Creativity is welcome!
When you reach the Additional Comment section in the submission form, write in "IoT Sandbox" so they know this is for our stage.
DEADLINE October 5th, 2017
The so-called Internet of Things (IoT) is undergoing massive adoption. From locks and thermostats to televisions and refrigerators, many devices that have traditionally delivered analog functionality are rapidly gaining Wi-Fi connectivity and connecting to cloud-based, command-and-control centers for remote control and monitoring functionality. Some of these devices are built with security in mind, while others are simply analog devices with communication capabilities slapped on. The security and privacy implications introduced by any security vulnerabilities in these connected devices are tremendous.
To be at the forefront of addressing and minimizing these issues, we organized the first-ever IoT hacking village at DEF CON 23. That was a follow-up to the massively popular SOHOpelessly Broken™ router hacking contest, which debuted at DEF CON 22 and contributed 15 new 0-day discoveries to the research community, we hope to educate participants and the community about security vulnerabilities in these widely deployed devices and, in turn, shift toward better security in the IoT category.
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.
Contestants will need to provide proof that they disclosed the vulnerability to the vendor.
A DEFCON 24 Black Badge ctf, players compete against one another by exploiting off-the-shelf IoT devices. These 15+ 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 over the weekend and the top three teams will be rewarded.
