Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Tuesday, March 3rd 2020, or created by us.
Remember when going to a security event meant that you were going to sit around in a huge room with 30 or so people watching presentations about subjects that contained highly sensitive information that usually was presented with some type of a legal disclosure? Yeah, some of you weren’t alive back then and don’t remember a DEF CON without a LINE CON, but it DID exist! And since DEF CON 16, Skytalks has been bringing attendees the Old School DEF CON: off-the-beaten-path discussions, technical deep dives, cool technology, early-access talks, and plenty of shenanigans.
The Skytalks track at DEF CON is completely off the record – cameras or recording are not allowed. According to the organizers, this is for the safety of presenters, some of whom have reason to be speaking “off the record”. This also encourages a more intimate and collegial atmosphere. Interaction and discussion with our speakers are encouraged.
The event is produced and hosted by the hacker collective simply known as “303”. It is not sponsored by any specific company or organization.
