Guest editorial by Rob Fuller
DEFCON, the 9000+ attendee hacker conference in Vegas has become a sort of hydra conference. It has become more like a global fair than what most people think of conferences; even the badge is highly unique.
I say this because there are so many things to do at DEFCON, other than going to talks, that you could spend your whole weekend looking at the "World’s Largest Boar!”, so to speak. One of the CTF (Capture the Flag) contest winners this year actually exclaimed that he only made it to 2 talks in 12 years! I am also one of those individuals who barely get a chance to go to talks and now that the speaker pool is so diverse, it's hard to find all of the "stuff" they release.
Before anyone has a chance to post "it's all on the DEFCON CD dummy," I want to challenge them to try. After a weekend of googling (which came back with few results) and making contact with some of the speakers, I provide you with a mostly accurate list of "stuff" that was released at DEFCON this year. If any of the information is inaccurate, or a tool is missing, please contact me and I will update this post.
