DRIVE INFORMATION FOR DEFCON27
If you're looking for something to fill up all your unused storage, may I recommend a nice hash table or two with a side of all of the DefCon talks and everything else on infocon.org?
HOW IT WORKS
DEF CON provides a core set of drive duplicators and data content options. It will be a first come, first served and duplicate 'till we run out of power. Bring in 6TB SATA3 blank drives (or larger) and check them in to get the data you want. Come back in about 24 hours to pick up your data-packed drive. Space allowing, we'll accept drives until Saturday morning.
WHAT YOU GET
We're working out the details until the last minute but it will be similar to what was provided for DC25:
6TB drive 1-3: All past convention videos that DT could find - essentially a clone of infocon.org - building on last year's collection and re-squished with brand new codecs for your size constraining pleasures.
6TB drive 2-3: freerainbowtables hash tables (lanman, mysqlsha1, NTLM) and word lists (1-2)
6TB drive 3-3: freerainbowtables GSM A5/1, md5 hash tables, and software (2-2)
WHAT YOU NEED
6TB SATA3 7200rpm drives - one for each source or copy. If you want a full copy of everything you will need three drives.
WHEN TO BE WHERE
The earlier the better. We accept drives on a FIFO basis and can't always complete everything. Check the full schedule for village dates and hours.
Be aware that we clear all the Vegas area stores of every single 6TB drive every year. Plan ahead and get your drives early!
We will have more duplicators this year! With all of our duplicators going, we can duplicate over 100 drives concurrently.
Duplicating a 6TB (About 5.46 usable) drive at an average of 120 Megabytes a second comes out to just under 14 hours per drive.
We push data out to the drives for 72 hours straight.
We duplicated only 380 drives for DC26 (we were short a few duplicators)! We're targeting over 3PB of data duplication this year!
We include these details in the DC Forum thread and you are encouraged to ask any questions you have there or reach out to us on twitter (@ddv_dc)
