  • Tamper Evident Village

    Tamper-evident" refers to a physical security technology that provides evidence of tampering (access, damage, repair, or replacement) to determine authenticity or integrity of a container or object(s). In practical terms, this can be a piece of tape that closes an envelope, a plastic detainer that secures a hasp, or an ink used to identify a legitimate document. Tamper-evident technologies are often confused with "tamper resistant" or "tamper proof" technologies which attempt to prevent tampering in the first place. Referred to individually as "seals," many tamper technologies are easy to destroy, but a destroyed (or missing) seal would provide evidence of tampering! The goal of the TEV is to teach attendees how these technologies work and how many can be tampered with without leaving evidence.

    The Tamper-Evident Village includes the following contests and events:
    • The Box; an electronic tamper challenge. An extremely realistic explosive with traps, alarms, and a timer ticking down. One mistake and BOOM, you're dead. Make every second count! Sign ups on-site when the TEV begins.
    • Tamper-Evident King of the Hill; a full-featured tamper challenge. Tamper single items at your leisure and attempt to beat the current best. There can be only ONE! No sign ups required, play on-site when the TEV begins.
    • Badge Counterfeiting Contest; submit your best forgery of a DEF CON human badge. Other target badges are also available for those looking for more counterfeit fun!
    • For your viewing pleasure, collections of high-security tamper-evident seals from around the world.
    • Sit-down presentations & demonstrations on various aspects of tamper-evident seals and methods to defeat them.
    • Hands-on fun with adhesive seals, mechanical seals, envelopes, and evidence bags.

      This is a special case with a known time-line of events as dependencies before more data can be provided. Village Department Heads know about these complications, and have contacted the primary organizer. We expect to get more information soon (1-2 weeks from this reply.)

      Best suggestion? Check back each week for 3 weeks for updates. If there is no updated content in 3 weeks, please bring it up again and I can ask. Me asking about this before 3 weeks pass will not provide the desired results.
