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.

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

The usual side of lock picking and mini drone flying plus more also 🙂
