The survey is here
Open Hacking Village (OHV)
The newly pronounced Open Hacking Village is completely free and available for all to attend (noob to expert). In its first year opening, the OHV will be hosting a list of environments for hackers to tinker around in. The main area’s the OHV will be focusing on include, Enterprise, Automotive and IoT (More info on these below). The thought of this village is to give people a free, legal environment to learn the tricks of the trade in hacking, test exploits out in, identify new exploits, learn from others, etc. The possibilities are endless and GrrCON is happy to announce the first environment of its kind. Come check us out in the vendor area!
Enterprise Hacking Village Ever want the chance to tinker with enterprise related networks, architectures, platforms, etc? Well the enterprise hacking village is for you! In this village there will be a simulated “enterprise” network setup for conference attendees to connect into and play around with. This environment is the old GrrCON CTF setup, so you may see something familiar, but we’ve also added a few more openly vulnerable systems to the network for conference attendees to play around with.
Car Hacking Village Brought to you by CANBUSHACK team, conference attendees will get hands on experience in hacking automotive technologies. Not only will this village be openly available to the public, but there will also be a huge opportunity to learn the art of hacking vehicles. There is no formal agenda setup, rather a table with a few automotive components and benches for attendees to interact with.
IoT Hacking Village Toasters, refrigerators, watches, shoes are all being connected to the Internet, but majority of these devices do so very insecurely. Interested in playing around with the devices people are labeling as the Internet of Things? If so, come check out this village, connect in your laptop and grab shell on that newly developed “smart” device to make it do things it’s not supposed to.

Hak4Kidz is an event of ethical hackers and Information Security professionals dedicated to bring the educational and communal benefits of whitehat hacking conferences to children and young adults. We plan to accomplish this mission by putting our collective expertise and passion on display for the attendees to interact with us at their will. A combination of youth base speaking tracks complementing an open area of stations will enable the attendees to expand and enlighten their technical interests. For innovation to perpetuate, it’s imperative that today’s young users are exposed to the bigger picture of how we got here and to help realize their potential.
Hak4Kidz operates as a public charity registered with the IRS under 501(c)(3) regulations.
