What we're about

DEFCON 201 (aka DC201) is the North NJ DEFCON local meetup group.

We are a place for local hackers, security professionals, makers, phreaks, locksmiths, technologist, nerds, geeks, technology activists, cypherpunks, sympathizers, and more unlabelable folks to meet up, share ideas and work on projects in the Garden State.

Meetings take place each Third Friday of the Month at Sub Culture (https://www.subculturejc.com) (260 Newark Ave, Jersey City NJ (https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/222857274)) in Downtown in Jersey City from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM EST.

Our formal typically follows an hour-long social gathering, followed by one to three lightning talks and an hour or more long period to work on projects.

Had an awesome talk/project rejected at a con, have an idea for one you want to test out or want to work on your communication and speaking skills? You can submit your lightning talk and/or project ideas at:

info {at} DEFCON201 [dot] org

If you do not have a project, we always have at least one open project running that anyone can join.

Also, look out on our website and this meet up for special events that take place on other dates and times outside of our normal meet up.

DEFCON 201 — Crypto CTF Practice Challenge

Needs a location

Welcome to the DEFCON 201 Google CTF Practice Challenge! For over two years we have been planing running our own Wargames and CTF to help people develop their hacking skills. While progress is still being made (we plan to launch our own in Winter 2019), DC201 will also occasionally enter into various online CTF Tournaments to test our skills and to get a sample on how one is set up so we have a blueprint in creating our own. This Saturday, from August 10th 2:00 PM EST to August 11th 2:00 PM EST, we invite all DEFCON 201 Members, Attendees and Fans to help us hack the Crypto CTF 2019!

In this brand new tournament, we are trying to provide the crypto lovers with fun and challenging pure crypto tasks to squeeze their heart and test their passion for cryptography. Each task will be based on a particular cryptographic primitive or it will include a direct application of cryptography in other fields.
