It’s official, DEF CON 28, the famous international hackers conference, becomes virtual, as does the Hack-A-Sat event, the US Air Force program that invites hackers to hack one of their satellites in orbit (see our article on this subject).
The organisers are putting in place all the logistics necessary to make this virtual experience as user-friendly as possible for the spectators. It will thus be possible to follow the satellite hacking competition from a distance wherever you are.
The dates for the final event are still set for 7-9 August 2020. All information is available on hackasat.com.
As a reminder, to be able to participate in the final round of the satellite hacking contest, you must have passed the qualifying rounds which starts on May 22nd and be in the first eight teams.
The clock is ticking… so hurry up and register at hackasat.com.
