::ABOUT DEFCON 201::

DEFCON 201 is the North New Jersey sub-chapter of DEFCON GROUPS (www.defcongroups.org) that spun from the DEFCON (www.defcon.org) convention that is the largest computer security hacker convention in the USA. We are a hardware and software hobbyist open workshop group that meets in Hoboken NJ every third Friday of the month.

Our mission is to help people learn new things, meet new people, mentor others in areas you may be strong in and provide some cohesion within the hacker culture in the general New Jersey area. We facillitate this through project collaborations, group gatherings, and group activities that will best serve our community and the world.

Sidepocket is an awful human being that for some reason people listen to. A Co-Founder of DEFCON 201, an open group for hacker workshop projects in North East New Jersey, he is constantly wanting to help people to get better at whatever they want to do and learn. He also has a history with NYC 2600, Radio Statler at Hackers on Planet Earth, Phone Losers of America, Museum of Urban Reclaim Spaces and The Yes Men.

GI Jack is one of the Co-Founders of DEFCON 201. He might have seen a Ninja that had built their own hacker variant of Arch Linux known as Ninja OS. You might be able to also find this ninja at: https://ninjaos.org/

XlogicX hacks at anything low level. He’s unmasked sanitized IP addresses in packets (because checksums) and crafts his own pcaps with just xxd. He feeds complete garbage to forensic tools, AV products, decompression software, and intrusion detection systems. He made evil strings more evil (with automation) to exploit high consumption regular expressions. Lately he has been declaring war on assembly language (calling it too high-level) and doing all kinds of ignorant things with machine code. More information can be found on xlogicx.net
