About


DC207 is a DEF CON group focused on community, education, mentoring and bringing the hacker and InfoSec community in Maine together. Our gatherings feature presentations, workshops, CTFs, and anything else in which the community is interested. The group is community-driven, and allows its members to be active so they can learn or teach about a subject they are passionate about. DC207 also supports the already-existing security-related and technology-focused groups, and we encourage members of all groups to collaborate and share knowledge. We are strong together!

The mission of the DC207 group is to advance knowledge and educate anyone interested in science, technology, and other areas of information security through project collaborations, group gatherings, and group activities that will best serve our community and the world.

A honeypot is an intentionally created fake system that is designed as a trap for the potential attackers. They deviate the attack to the fake system rather than the original system and even it helps you detect the malicious traffic and track them. In this workshop we'll be building our own honeypots with microcontrollers. Bring your laptop with you, this will be a hands-on exercise where you'll learn how to create simple honeypots using microcontrollers. All hardware will be provided and you'll be bringing home your own honeypot by the end of the workshop.

Web crawlers or spiders have been a mainstay in the testing toolkit of security folks for many years. They’re great for mapping out websites and understanding what you’ll be testing. There’s one disadvantage to spiders though, they only show you what you have access to… what if some of those resources are user specific, or are behind resources you can’t see or reach? In this talk, Ryan Boutot will be introducing a new open source tool for security researchers called XSSpider. XSSpider is a unique spidering tool which is meant to run within an XSS payload and execute spidering from the user’s browser, saving everything it finds for later review. You will simply not want to miss the debut of this new awesome tool.

A lot is expected of software developers these days; they are expected to be experts in everything despite very little training. Throw in the IT security team (often with little-to-no knowledge of how to build software) telling developers what to do and how to do it, and the situation becomes strained. This strained relationship can be overcome! Join us and Tanya for a masterclass in AppSec.
