November 1, 2019 - November 2, 2019


EH-Net Global Calendar - Hackfest 2019Hackfest is the largest hacking event in Canada and brings together more than 1100 computer security enthusiasts. Hackfest 2019 takes place over two days of technical conferences about security and hacking and is preceded by 3 days of training.

Both nights let participants measure their security and hacking skills in a unique CTF (Capture The Flag). The whole evening is accompanied by a lockpicking contest, DJ atmosphere, workshops, evening conferences, live podcast recording and more.

Villages at Hackfest 2019

Villages are coming back for the 2019 edition to offer even more learning possibilities and more space.

Dedicated spaces arranged around a specific topic and they may be considered mini conferences within the con, with many holding their own independent talks as well as hands-on activities such as CTF’s, or labs. Last year’s villages included the IoT Village, lockpicking, RFID and the well known Social Engineering and soldering villages. We’ll announce our villages as soon as we can here and on social networks.
