ROOTCON was founded in response to a lack of legitimate security/hacking conferences in the Philippines. The way the conference is run is heavily influenced by DEF CON, the world’s largest hacking conference. Like DEF CON, ROOTCON controls and minimizes product pitching from its sponsors, which causes a lot of boredom among its attendees. ROOTCON uses the Call For Papers to vet its presenters and subjects in order to maintain its high-quality presentations.
Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Monday, October 11th 2021, or created by us.
ROOTCON was founded back in 2008, the word ROOTCON is derivatives from the two words root (a UNIX super-user) and con as a conference.
The inception of ROOTCON was inspired due to the lack of legit security/hacking conferences in the Philippines, how the conference is run is fully inspired by the world largest hacking conference in the world which is DEF CON, like DEF CON, ROOTCON controls and minimize product pitching from its sponsors which gives a hell of boredom to its attendees. To maintain its high-caliber talks, ROOTCON screens its speakers and topics through the Call For Papers.
Like any other conference, ROOTCON also hosts mind-boggling hacker games such as Capture The Flag, Semprix’ Mystery box, and of course the infamous Hacker Jeopardy.
ROOTCON has maintained its posture as the neutral grounds for the hacking community, both underground and the enterprise, we have been successful in keeping access to the conference affordable for the hacking community. This balance between content and affordability is the reason ROOTCON has been consistently a huge success.
