DEF CON 29 Adversary Village (Virtual)

The CFP review board

The "Adversary Village" is a community torqued combat readiness platform purely focused on Adversary simulation, Adversary emulation tactics, Simulation CTFs, Supply chain security attack tactics, Adversary Tactics, Philosophy and urban survival skills. We plan to have a village at DEF CON 29 specific to adversarial attack simulation on a network or Supply chain that is meant to replicate an enterprise network, with real world scenarios.

We hope to be enablers in community driven development, aiming to better Adversary Philosophy, skill set and mindset.
Please submit your awesome research to Adversary Village at DEF CON 29 this year!

As the COVID 19 situation continues, the talks will be done remotely in Las Vegas Time Zone. Talks/workshops will be streaming at DEFCON Discord channel and our Youtube/Twitch channel.
