    The DarkNet project is an online and in person game in which players interact with an chat bot that sends them on quests which teach as well as challenge them.

    Technical challenges related to hacking and security are the most prominent. Each quest line requires the players to work independently or together to solve puzzles, research ciphers, learn new technologies such as PGP or Tor in order to gain points and progress.

    Many, but not all, of our quests have an in-person component - we have in the past had a lock picking challenge box at our table, an RFID reader challenge, and badge kits that are involved in making progress in certain parts of the game. We collaborate with other Events, Villages and Contests to share content and send people around DefCon to learn new things - almost like a mini-DC101 program with a game around it.
