DEFCON: The Documentary

Synopsis: DEFCON is the world's largest hacking conference, held in Las Vegas, Nevada. In 2012 it was held for the 20th time. The conference has strict no-filming policies, but for DEFCON 20, a documentary crew was allowed full access to the event. The film follows the four days of the conference, the events and people (attendees and staff), and covers history and philosophy behind DEFCON's success and unique experience.

solve, but you keep wanting to make it better.

The people who missed a few years. The

differences between their experiences

is going to be pretty

radically different.

DEF CON 1 was around 100 people, and we

expect roughly 15,000 for DEF CON 20.

We work nonstop. I haven't seen

4th of July in like 7 years.

It's crazy that DEF CON, you can label

it as a hobby, takes so much time.

Because it seems like pretty much from

the moment DEF CON ends until the time

that we're spinning it

up again, we're busy.

You know, technically I retired 2

years ago, but I can't give it up,

because it's such a part of me. I'm

giving back to the same culture

that spawned me.

DEF CON for the last 10 years, especially,

has been a very big part of my life.

It consumes most of my free time. DEF CON

starts, for me, the day after DEF CON is over,

for the next year.

It's going to be amazing. We have so many

surprises planned for the attendees.

It's going to be remarkable. This is going

to be a really, really special year.

If you're sleeping,

you're doing it wrong.

A lot of people who are hardcore DEF CON

attendees, or staff, they negotiate

when they change jobs. "That's fine,

everything's good, but I need to take",

you know, 2 weeks off."

I never thought that my party would

be a job employment prerequisite.

I am not kidding, I am expecting another

well orchestrated, well-oiled machine,

coming together and producing

this amazing gathering of geeks.

No kidding, it's what we do. We come

together and we do the HELL out of it.

And I expect it to happen this year.

There's absolutely a difference

between driving and flying.

When Utah group, for example, used to

go down to DEF CON, years and years

and years ago, there was a whole process
