DEFCON Kids is dedicated to teaching kids around the world how to love being white-hat hackers. A white-hat hacker is someone who enjoys thinking of innovative new ways to make, break and use anything to create a better world.
DEFCON Kids 3 will be August 2 -4, 2013 at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas as part of DEFCON, the largest hacker gathering in the world.
