  • Crack Me If You Can (CMIYC) - Sunday

    In its tenth year, the premier password cracking contest "Crack Me If You Can" is returning to DEFCON. The world's best password cracking teams are assembled and are awaiting the hardest 48 hours of their year.

    Every year, the contest has a different surprise/twist. One year it was all international passwords, last year it was password rotation and BCRYPT, and 10 years ago it was capital letters. Oh the humanity!

    This year the teams will be cracking hashes, generated by the CMIYC team, using plain-texts donated by famous hackers and Internet founders. Time for you to test your password cracking skills against your heroes.

    Teams have 48 hours to crack as many passwords as possible using what ever resources they can legally assemble. Teams are split into "PRO" (for the large, professional password cracking teams) and "STREET" for smaller teams, or beginners.

    Each year the "Crack Me If You Can" team gives away hundreds of free password cracking shirts in the Contest area.
