Welcome to the October 2021 DCG 201 Meet Up!

Getting back on our feet was difficult, like, ask the world on how hard it is right now with Delta and other insanity going on. But we did it. And we are back for the spookiest season in a BIG way:

Starting with this meet up, DCG 201 will be a Hybrid event!

This means we are welcome back to our old haunt SubCulture (we miss them so much) in Jersey City in addition to LIVE Streaming parts of our meet up online.

Each will cross over but have a slightly different experience with exclusives for both.

This will be a jam-packed event that has various talks and workshops, including hosting our fourth ever Hacktoberfest event, a new CTF for us to crack, building VR out of cardboard, an in-person exclusive talk, Hacker AF movies, lockpicking & more!

Welcome back!

Oh and the next day at 8pm EST, we going to stream BOTH events and we will be streaming Metroid Dread for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals such as Children’s Specialized Hospital under Child’s Play!

PRE SHOW :: Black Hat Webinar: Anti-Analysis Logic of Arm Malware on macOS

:..>Apple’s new M1 systems (aka Apple Silicon) offer a myriad of benefits …for both macOS users, and well, to malware authors as well. However, before analyzing malware targeting this platform, one must master various foundational topics such as understanding and reversing arm64 code.

In this talk, we’ll cover such topics and then apply them in order to analyze the anti-analysis logic of the first malicious program compiled to natively target Apple Silicon.

Armed (ha!) with the information and analysis techniques presented in this talk, you’ll leave well on the way to becoming a proficient macOS M1 malware analyst!

:..>Bio: Patrick Wardle is the founder of Objective-See. Having worked at NASA and the NSA, as well as presenting at countless security conferences, he is intimately familiar with aliens, spies, and talking nerdy. Patrick is passionate about all things related to macOS security and thus spends his days finding Apple 0days, analyzing macOS malware, and writing free open-source security tools to protect Mac users. All The World’s API

:..>In this talk, we’ll investigate what it takes to make common sense knowledge available as hackable APIs, and why it matters. The trivia like “how many people live in Paris” or “what novels did Kurt Vonnegut write” or “what’s the synopsis of Game of Thrones S04E05” is easily reachable for a human, but frequently surprisingly hard to gather in a machine-readable way. While many particular and specialized APIs do exist, we are studying the generic approach: how humanity’s open knowledge hubs like Wikipedia and OpenStreetMap can be used to access structured knowledge from programming languages. A few practical libraries (of various maturity) presented, and potential future approaches discussed.

:..>Bio: Victor Shepelev aka zverok is a developer and writer from Ukraine. He works mainly in Ruby (and is involved in language documentation and evolution) but recently switched to Python to reach a broader audience with various passion projects of his, mostly related to open data and text processing. IN-PERSON EXCLUSIVE TBA

.::OPEN PROJECTS::.

Hacktoberfest 2021

:..>Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with Intel, AppWrite & Deep Source — is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors towards issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like and others they’ve just discovered. No contribution is too small — bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.

Hacktoberfest is open to everyone in our global community. Whether you’re a seasoned contributor or looking for projects to contribute to for the first time, you’re welcome to participate.

Pull requests can be made in any participating GitHub or GitLab hosted repository/project. Look for the ‘hacktoberfest’ topic to know if a repository/project is participating in Hacktoberfest. Pull requests must be approved by a maintainer of the repository/project to count.

You can sign up anytime between October 1 and October 31. Just be sure to sign up on the official Hacktoberfest website for your pull requests to count.

::Intro to Hacktoberfest 2021 (TALK)::

:..>In this talk, we will go over online & in-person the Do’s & Don’ts of Hacktoberfest 2021! We will go over how to sign up on GitHub & GitLab, how to do a Pull-Request on either platform and go over a list of various open-source projects with the #Hacktoberfest label we think need more attention than usual!

::Choose Trees or Tees::

Rather than receive t-shirts as swag, you can choose to have a tree planted in your name and help make Hacktoberfest 2021 more carbon neutral: https://tree-nation.com/profile/digitalocean

::Rules & Resources::

Tasks For Beginners

The following resources share repositories that curate tasks for beginners:

https://github.com/mungell/awesome-for-beginners

https://up-for-grabs.net/#/

https://www.firsttimersonly.com/

Share your Hacktoberfest journey by writing about your contributions on the DEV Hacktoberfest tag. DEV is a community visited by millions of programmers who are sharing their work to make others better: https://dev.to/t/hacktoberfest

Improve code quality of open-source projects you love. DeepSource Discover lists thousands of open-source projects that have code quality issues up for grabs.

RULES

  • Pull requests can be submitted to any opted-in repository on GitHub or GitLab.
  • The pull request must contain commits you made yourself.
  • If a maintainer reports your pull request as spam, it will not be counted toward your participation in Hacktoberfest.
  • If a maintainer reports behavior that’s not in line with the project’s code of conduct, you will be ineligible to participate.
  • To get a shirt, you must make four approved pull requests (PRs) on opted-in projects between October 1–31 in any time zone.
  • This year, the first 50,000 participants can earn a T-shirt.

A repository/project is considered to be participating in Hacktoberfest if the ‘hacktoberfest’ topic is present and is accepting public contributions via pull requests. An individual pull request can also be opted-in directly by adding the ‘hacktoberfest-accepted’ label.

A pull request is considered approved once it has an overall approving review from maintainers, or has been merged by maintainers, or has been given the ‘hacktoberfest-accepted’ label. A pull request with any label containing the word ‘spam’ or ‘invalid’ will be considered ineligible for Hacktoberfest.

Quality Standards

In line with Hacktoberfest value #2 (Quantity is fun, quality is key), we have provided examples of the pull requests that we consider to be low quality contributions (which we discourage and may be marked as spam by maintainers).

  • Pull requests that are automated e.g. scripted opening pull requests to remove whitespace / fix typos / optimize images.
  • Pull requests that are disruptive e.g. taking someone else’s branch/commits and making a pull request.
  • Pull requests that are regarded by a project maintainer as a hindrance vs. helping.
  • Something that’s clearly an attempt to simply +1 your pull request count for October.
  • Last but not least, one pull request to fix a typo is fine, but 5 pull requests to remove a stray whitespace is not.

Spammy pull requests can be labeled as “spam” or “invalid.”

Maintainers are faced with the majority of spam that occurs during Hacktoberfest, and we dislike spam just as much as you.

If you’re a maintainer, please label any spammy pull requests submitted to the repositories you maintain as ‘spam’ or ‘invalid’, and close them.

Pull requests with a label containing either of these words won’t count toward Hacktoberfest.

Pull requests must be approved by a maintainer.

Once a participant has submitted a pull request that is ready-to-review to a participating project, it must be approved by a maintainer of that project before it will count toward Hacktoberfest.

PRs can be accepted either by being merged, having an overall approving review, or having the ‘hacktoberfest-accepted’ label.

After a PR is approved it enters a fourteen-day review window where our team can take action against any participants we believe to be contributing in bad faith, and maintainers can revoke their approval if they decide that a PR isn’t actually a legitimate contribution.

After the fourteen-day window has passed, the PR becomes eligible for Hacktoberfest and this cannot be reversed. Bad repositories will be excluded.

We’ve seen many repositories that encourage participants to make simple pull requests — to quickly gain a pull request towards winning. While these projects may be a valuable learning tool for new contributors, they often aren’t valuable and high quality contributions to open source projects, and go against one of our core values for Hacktoberfest.

Some examples of projects that don’t follow the values of Hacktoberfest include:

Projects asking contributors to add their name or profile information to a list

Projects asking contributors to submit assorted data structures and algorithms (DSA)

Projects asking contributors to curate arbitrary lists of quotes, interview questions, etc.

The quality of pull requests is paramount; quantity comes second.

They’ve implemented a system to block these repositories, and any pull requests submitted to such repositories will not be counted.

Hacker Science Theater 3000 Presents: Johnny Mnemonic :..>Exclusively in person join us meetings for various hacker film and documentary screenings. First up is a classic that has aged beautifully and horribly at the same time:

Johnny Mnemonic is a 1995 Canadian-American cyberpunk action thriller film directed by Robert Longo in his directorial debut. The film stars Keanu Reeves and Dolph Lundgren. The film is based on the story of the same name by William Gibson. Keanu Reeves plays the title character, a man with a cybernetic brain implant designed to store information. The film portrays Gibson’s dystopian view of the future with the world dominated by megacorporations and with strong East Asian influences.

=====================================================

Welcome to the August 2021 DCG 201 Meet Up!

We at DCG 201 and DEFCON Groups are at an odd crossroad. On one hand, restrictions have currently lessen so we can actually physically meet up again in some form. On the other hand, the DELTA Variant is on the rise across the world and even the dreaded LAMBDA Variant is on the horizon.

So our thought was, why not both?

Starting with this meet up, DCG 201 will be a Hybrid event.

This means we are welcome back to our old haunt SubCulture (we miss them so much) in Jersey City in addition to LIVE Streaming parts of our meet up online.

Each will cross over but have a slightly different experience with exclusives for both.

No matter if you want to show up for some social distancing hacking at our venue or stay safe at home and check us out online, we welcome you back to the insanity that is DCG 201.

Welcome home!

.::LIGHTNING TALKS::.

PRE SHOW :: Making the DEF CON 29 Badge :..>Come meet the new badge makers and hear the story of how this year’s badge was created amidst a global pandemic. We’ll share tales of chip shortages, delayed parts, and late nights, as well as discuss how the badge works and what you can do with it. Maybe even some hints about the challenges within…

:..>Bio: Michael Whiteley is a husband, father, and electronics geek. He doesn’t like long walks on the beach, but prefers to be indoors with a fast internet connection.

Katie Whiteley is a wife, mother, and graphic designer. She likes long walks on the beach because there’s no internet connection.

Combined they are MK Factor, a husband/wife badgemaker team. They’ve created badges for many conferences and groups like OpenWest, Saintcon, DC801, Car Hacking Village, and many unofficial DEF CON badges. Together they earned a black badge for Car Hacking at DEF CON 24.

Hypercore:// A World Of Distributed Data Structures :..>Originally known as the DAT Protocol with the Beaker Browser, Hypercore Protocol is a peer-to-peer data network built on the Hypercore logs that are like lightweight blockchains without the consensus algorithm. In this talk, I will details how I built the Hyper Protocol, how it works and a first look into my new project; a self-hosted cloud, similar to sandstorm, that uses Hypercore to integrate the servers into a network.

:..>Bio: Paul Frazee got his start in the Web working at development agencies which specialized in e-commerce and marketing. His interest in open source and distributed systems led him to the Secure Scuttlebutt (SSB) community where he helped develop a peer-to-peer social networking app called Patchwork. After a few years working on SSB, Paul started the Beaker Browser project in order to experiment with applying p2p concepts to the Web platform.

INTERMISSION :: After The Lifting Of The Block: Case Study Of Turkey (ONLINE ONLY) :..>Wikipedia was blocked throughout Turkey for almost 2,5 years until 2020. Wikimania 2021 will be the first Wikimania held after the lifting of the block. During the years of the block in Turkey, many fellow wikimedians were concerned about the situation; but most did not have a chance to learn what was happening from Turkish wiki community members. At Wikimania 2021, it will be 20 months since the access was restored; Turkish community have gained ground in “reintroducing” Wikipedia to the country.

In this presentation, we tell the story of the Wikipedia block from TR community view and introduce the work of WMTR for overcoming the negative outcomes and coming out of this situation as a more powerful, better established group.

The game takes place in a space-themed setting, in which players each take on one of two roles, most being Crewmates, and a predetermined number being Impostors. The goal of the Crewmates is to identify the Impostors, eliminate them, and complete tasks around the map; the Impostors' goal is to covertly sabotage and kill the Crewmates before they complete all of their tasks. Players suspected to be Impostors may be eliminated via a plurality vote, which any player may initiate by calling an emergency meeting (except during a crisis) or reporting a dead body. Crewmates win if all Impostors are eliminated or all tasks are completed whereas Impostors win if there is an equal number of Impostors and Crewmates, or if a critical sabotage goes unresolved.

About Child's Play: Child's Play also receives cash donations throughout the year. With those cash donations, we purchase new consoles, peripherals, games, and more for hospitals and therapy facilities.

.::DEFCON 201 — Ye Official Constitution::.

==Preamble==

We hold these truths to be self evident that all human hackers are created equal, and that all things are designed to be engineered, taken apart, and hacked. We, the hackers, of DEFCON 201, North New Jersey do solemnly conspire to hold in institution the finest collection of backyard engineer, hacks, and creative uses for all manners of technology. We seek a space to discus technology and work on projects free of outside restrictions imposed by detrimental social constructs. We inspire to be ethical, and hold the use of technology for the better of mankind in our works and plans. We are a DEF CON Group, Area Code 201, Northern New Jersey.

==Section I – Vision==

DEFCON 201 is a DEF CON group, and affiliate of the DEF CON Groups program started by DEF CON Hacker & Security Convention. We aim to provide the DEF CON experience in the off season, providing talks and workshops,in the Northern Eastern Section (general Hudson County area) of New Jersey. This shall be defined from the New York Border, South to the Driscol Bridge, and west until where Route 15 intersects Route 80. We encourage all others outside of this range to start or join other local DEF CON groups, but shall be welcome to attend anyway.

DEFCON 201 is a technical group, but we seek to involve members of all skill levels, and there is no skill level requirement to join. We are not an “elite” group, we invite all skill levels to attend and participate where hopefully everyone can learn something, and encourage public participation.

DEFCON 201 aims to give back to the community, and assist with charitable works of technology, and improving the lives of New Jerseyians through better use of technology.

DEFCON 201 is to identify as a hacker group, not an InfoSec organization or other labels. We aspire the keep the hacker spirit going. We aspire to be FREE as in speech, thinkers, and promote the ability of the individual to freely operate machines and all engineered constructs as they see fit, for ethical purposes.

DEFCON 201 aspires to register itself as a 501.3 charitable organization or whatever shall happen to replace that statue if said stature it is replaced that fulfills the same role. We aspire to do charity works of bringing technology to the communities of Northern New Jersey in a way that is FREE, OPEN, and helpful to the people of New Jersey. We seek to bridge the digital divide, not of just who gets to use technology but who gets to create technology.

DEFCON 201 as such, conspires to be a democracy of members, where members are equals brought together for their love of technology, engineering, and hacking in general.

DEFCON 201 is a DEF CON group, and shall do its earnest to place itself on good terms with all other DEF CON groups local and abroad in addition to the DEFCON event in Las Vegas.

  3. There shall be three phases of Membership:

    A. Associate (Honorary Member, and/or Friend) of DEFCON 201. For all people just joining us, members of other DC groups, from outside the area, or with no real interest of formally joining.

==Section IV – Five Points==

It is here recognized our earlier 5 Points from the weblog are part of the creed DEFCON 201 character. This wording shall be considered cannon moving forward.

  1. Project Oriented Workshop DEFCON 201 is here to be a “hands on” workshop. While we aim to have great speakers from about the nation, and globe, we encourage our members, friends, associates and participants to get their hands dirty. We love to host talk by any participant. Share your interesting idea, and recruit more people to help further your technological endeavors.

  2. No 1337 Skill requirements We are not not an “elite” group, but instead aim to engage people of all skill levels and challenge them to learn more. We cater to all skill levels from beginner to advanced. Our mantra of “better than you where yesterday” is the only level of skill you need to obtain.

  3. Rekindling the Hacker Ethic and Hacker Mentality Information was meant to be FREE. This cannot be stated enough. We collectively feel a lot of the old hacker mindset has been washed away by very same skill specific trades such as “InfoSec” which have become glorified QA. It is even more appalling that many of these trades where started by hackers, but to the current crop of “professional”, hacker remains a dirty word. We want to challenge the way people look at technology, and this is more than simply a career path. This is a way of thinking, and a way of approaching certain situations. We are here to keep cyberspace Free, and the tools and information about these tools to be Freely available both online and off. We aspire to promote Free as in speech software and tools, and FREE, Democratic, Peer-led organizations to solve real world problems that real persons face.

  4. Leave Nobody Behind Our Founders and Members are all too familiar with being in an environment where you are attempting to learn and instead of guidance your peers are instead antagonistic and brings petty scene drama into the subject. We feel that not only does this stifle learning hacker skills and mentality but contributes to the already negative stigma of hackers in our community. Therefore, we declare that DEFCON 201 will be an environment with a policy of improving everyone and not leaving people behind in the learning process. We either all succeed together or all fail together and we will repeat and try new methods of teaching for skills until everyone is on the same page.

  5. Improve & Give Back To Local Community There continues to be a stunning “digital divide” in who gets access to technology. DEFCON 201 aspires to give back to the community by helping bridge this gap, by making digital creation tools available to the public, and participate in projects that make a full internet capable general purpose computers available to all members of society regardless of their background, technical proficiency and perceived social status. To create projects that feature accessibility as a priority and to make fast, unrestricted internet available for eveyone. Information is not truly FREE unless all are FREE to access it.

DEFCON 201 Updates — Keybase, Discord & More!

Greetings Dirty Jersey Hackers! We have a few house cleaning updates we would like to share with you regarding communications and social media.

Starting with…

::DEFCON 201 ATTENDEE KEYBASE TEAM::

We are excited to announce that DEFCON 201 now has it’s own Keybase Team!

What is Keybase?

Keybase is a key directory that offers an end-to-end encrypted chat and cloud storage system, called Keybase Chat and the Keybase filesystem respectively. Keybase allows users to “prove” a link between certain online identities (such as a Twitter or Reddit account) and their encryption keys. Instead of using a system such as OAuth, identities are proven by posting a signed statement as the account a user wishes to prove ownership of. Since the Keybase app checks the proof, it avoids trust on first use.

You can also pipe all Keybase traffic via TOR and access the profile web-gui via the Tor Browser.

A browser extension for Chrome and Firefox allows you to add users on social media directly to Keybase.

Also, once the client is installed you can also run Keybase through the Command Line.

NOTE: This chat method is ONLY for those who have attended a DEFCON 201 Meet Up and joined our Mailing List. If you are on our Mailing List and are having issues/did not receive the invite please contact us at the next available meet up or email us at INFO (at) DEFCON201 {dot} ORG
