    It's true, the Data Duplication Village is back for DC 30! We have all the bits and bytes available from packed up into nice, neat packages. If you're looking for something to fill up all your unused storage, may I recommend a nice hash table or two with a side of all of the DefCon talks? This is a "free-to-you" service where we're providing you direct access to terabytes of useful data to help build those skills.

    DEF CON will provide a core set of drive duplicators as well as data content options. We accept 6, 8, and 10TB drives on a first come, first served basis and duplicate 'till we can no longer see straight. Bring in your blank SATA3 drives - check them in early - to get the data you want. Come back in about 24 hours to pick up your data-packed drive. Space allowing, we'll accept drives all the way through until Saturday morning - but remember, it's FIFO!
    • It will be a first come, first served to duplicate 'till we drop.
    • Bring labeled 6TB SATA blank drives, and submit them in the queue for the data you want.
    • Come back in 14-24 hours to pick up your data-packed drive.
    • Space allowing, the last drop-offs will be no later than Saturday afternoon and the last drives will run overnight with the final pickup time at 11:30am.

    WHAT IS AVAILABLE - Three drives:
    1. 6TB drive 1-3: Updated archive of plus other "direct from DT" content, built on last years collection and always adding more for your data consuming appetite.
    2. 6TB drive 2-3: GSM A51 and MD5 hash tables (Tables 1-2) with about 404 gigs free
    3. 6TB drive 3-3: more rainbowtables, lanman, mysqlsha1, ntlm, and some word lists (Tables 2-2) with about 136 gigs free

    The DC 29 content will be posted at once finalized

    * 6TB SATA3 512e format 7200rpm drive - one for each source you want

    If you want a full copy of everything you will need three drives.
    You can bring back last year's drive(s) to be wiped / updated (you should remove any 2018 stickers).

    Data Duplication Village Hours:

    - Thursday, August 11, 16:00 - 19:00 (drop off only)
    - Friday, August 12, 10:00 - 17:00
    - Saturday, August 13, 10:00 - 17:00
    - Sunday, August 14, 10:00 - 11:00 (last chance pickup only)

    - Space permitting, last drop off is Saturday at 3:00pm.
    - Last chance pickup is Sunday from 10:00 to 11:00.

    We're working on a method to post completed ticket ranges to and

    • Be aware that we cleared all the Vegas area stores of every single 6TB drive last year we did this so plan ahead and get them now!
    • Duplicating a 6TB (About 5.46 usable) drive at an average of 120 Megabytes a second comes out to just under 14 hours per drive.
    • With all about 16 duplicators going, we can duplicate about 95 drives concurrently.
    • We're expect to push about 11GB per second out to the drives for 72 hours straight.
    • We did 335 drives for DC24 and we're hoping to do even more at DC25!
    • We are expecting more total duplicator capacity than last year!

    But wait - there's more! A few years ago, we made our our stretch goal a reality to provide a pick-and-pull datastore in the DDV. We expect to do it bigger and better this year! Dark Tangent and KnightOwl l post the up-to-date details in the DC Forum thread and you are encouraged to ask any questions you have there as con approaches.

    Hi, I'm looking forward to dropping off a few drives!

    I noticed that drives 2 and 3 (the rainbow tables drives) listed here are reversed from what's on Can you please confirm which rainbow tables drive is which? (Thanks!)

      I do not have that information. I do not run any contest, event, village, workshop, etc. at DEF CON: I provide content about things when department heads relay them to me.

      Maybe someone running the DDV can get you that answer.
