Interesting Hacker Summer Camp Talks

Hacker Summer Camp, as it is colloquially known, is three security conferences that are all next week in Las Vegas. The three conferences that makeup Security Summer Camp are:

While preparing for these conferences, I dug through their schedules and picked out the talks I was most interested in catching.

BSides Las Vegas

BSides Las Vegas is back with a fantastic schedule and is always one of the best community events of the year. I am giving a talk on Wednesday at BSides titled Vulnerability Intelligence for All: Say Goodbye to Data Gatekeeping, which I am super excited about.

Here are a few other fantastic talks I will try to catch:


Blackhat USA is the “commercial conference” of the three but has a lot of good talks this year. The talks I am looking forward to this year are:


DEF CON is probably the world’s most well-known hacker conference, and this year’s schedule looks impressive.  Here is what I am going to attempt to see this year:

Growing the Community of AI Hackers with the Generative Red Team
Badge of Shame: Breaking into Secure Facilities with OSDP
ndays are also 0days: Can hackers launch 0day RCE attack on popular software only with chromium ndays?
Vacuum robot security and privacy – prevent your robot from sucking your data

Along with these talks, they have these interest-specific villages where I will spend a lot of time. Here are the villages where I know I will be spending time.

Wrapping Up

While the talks above are the ones that I am looking forward to, my friends have built HackerTracker, which has a complete list of all the talks for the weekend and is worth checking out.

I am also really hoping someone hacks the new Sphere next week.
