Hot off the back of the DEF CON DC4131 hike 2019 (which was really awesome and good times had 🙂 ), this coming month hosts your last DEF CON Dojo for the year, where the topic will be RFID Hacking 2.0, a continuation from the introductory session held earlier in the year. No longer are we satisfied just easily hacking into Amazon offered home security solutions… this time we enter the world of UHF RFID tags and far more common real world examples of how (in)secure solutions are out there utilising them. We have community member and Proxmark Geek Andreas L kindly hosting this workshop and we are super excited to learn the ways of the RFID HAxOr Jedis, not one to miss! Once again, open to everyone! Details can be found HERE.

As always, we value your feedback on any topic so don’t be shy to get in touch. Looking forward to catching up!

It’s also a great month for DC4131 official members, we have 2 events going on:

  • Saturday 21st September is the 2nd installment of the awesome FPV Drone Racing Workshop, spaces are limited so be sure to check out the invite if not done so already.
  • Saturday 28th September (With Saturday 5th October as a back up date) is our official yearly DEF CON hike, with an unofficial BBQ after for those wanting 🙂 Again, members should have already received these details so would be awesome to see another great hiking crew turnout this year!

A further heads up! We have the 3rd iteration of our Defcon Dojo happening this month.

This month we have the honor of having our very own El President, Adrian,  will be bringing all the goodies surrounding the Teensy project (https://www.pjrc.com/teensy/). The usual side of lock picking and mini drone flying plus more also 🙂
