What is HITCON?
In the hacker world, the line between evil and justice is blurred. Instead, we believe that the term hacker represents the spirit of being ever challenging and the possession of tremendous knowledge and skills.
Hacks in Taiwan (HITCON) is a highly technical security conference in Taiwan to gather the various information security researchers and their expertise, the first of its kind in Taiwan.
HITCON aims to provide everyone interested in security and hacking to meet up face to face, so they can exchange their experiences and share their newest and most exciting findings. It was first held 10 years ago by chr00t security group.
All HITCON talks are carefully chosen to ensure that they represent the latest trends or technologies, presents excellent hacking techniques, and is not a commercial advertisement by vendors. Besides, we also have an IRC channel that is displayed on a large screen on stage in real-time. There is also the sheep wall, which sniffs the network traffic during the conference and displays them on the screen on stage. These interesting and unique peculiarities attract a lot of people who are interested in security and hacking.
HITCON is the hacker’s party and we invite everyone to come to Taiwan to join the party to experience the hacker culture in Taiwan, follow up with the most interesting and sensitive topics, and to socialize with hackers as well as hacker groups.
HITCON is held by the Association of Hackers in Taiwan, a registered NPO (non-profit). They have a low ticket price, usually $50 for students, and $100 for adults.
