SOHOpelessly Broken is back at DEF CON 23 for our second year. This year, we're teaming up with the brand new Internet of Things Village where the contest will be hosted. Come to the IoT Village, see some cool workshops, meet some cool people, hack some cool devices, and compete in our 0-day contest and IoT-based CTF.
The objective of this contest is to demonstrate previously unidentified vulnerabilities in off-the-shelf consumer devices. This is an opportunity for contestants to bring in their own IoT devices and find exploits. Contestants must provide relevant exploit information to the judges and publicly demonstrate the attack in the contest area. [details]
This is an at-con capture the flag style contest where contestants will be pitted against 15+ off-the-shelf SOHO routers and IoT devices, hardened, but with known vulnerabilities. Contestants must identify weaknesses and exploit these devices to gain control. Pop as many as you can over the weekend to win. [details]
We've had one very successful contest so far at DEFCON, and are looking to have more. If you have a venue where a contest might be appropriate, let us know. We are planning a variety of formats and new challenges, and we're open to suggestions. Email us at email@example.com
