About Us

At the Crypto & Privacy Village you can learn how to secure your own systems while also picking up some tips and tricks on how to break classical and modern encryption. The CPV features workshops and talks on a wide range of crypto and privacy topics from experts. We’ll also have an intro to crypto talk for beginners, some crypto-related games and puzzles.

The Crypto & Privacy Village would not be possible without our presenters,
our volunteers, and all the people who make DEFCON possible. A special thank you to The Hewlett Foundation for their recent support.
