    Recon Village is an Open Space with Talks, Live Demos, Workshops, Discussions, CTFs, etc. with a common focus on Reconnaissance. The core objective of this village is to spread awareness about the importance of reconnaissance, open-source intelligence (OSINT), and demonstrating how even small information about a target can cause catastrophic damage to individuals and organizations.

    Recon Village appeared at DEF CON 25, 26, 27, 28 as well as DEF CON China Beta and 1.0 and we received an overwhelming response from speakers, CTF/HackAThon participants, and attendees.

    We strive to make Recon Village even better this time and are expecting more active participation from the attendees. It will be really great if we can get at least the same size space (or bigger) as we got in DEFCON 27.

    We will be opening 'Call For Papers and Workshops' on 22nd March 2021.

    We will have our Jeopardy Style OSINT CTF Contest throughout the Village timings. Based on the feedback from last year, we plan to make the CTF more challenging this year. The challenges will be around harvesting information about target organizations, their employee's social media profiles, their public svn/gits, password breach dumps, darknet, paste(s), etc. followed by active exploitation, bug hunting, investigation, and pentest scenarios of virtual targets. All the target organizations, employees, servers, etc. will be created by our team and hence will not attract any legal issues.

    Similar to the last year, there will be Awesome rewards for CTF winners, along with free t-shirts, stickers, village coins, and other schwag which attendees can grab and show off.

    Guess what! our Badge will also be more interesting this time and as usual, it will be free.
    P.S. We will not be selling our badges.
