DEF CON Discord Server is Live!

*You can now join the Aerospace Village server at

Aerospace Village Discord channels will be open 8/7, 8/8, 8/9 9:00-19:00.

DEF CON has announced the decision to go virtual and many of the Villages are moving virtual as well. While each organization and event will develop its own decision criteria and make its own hard choices, the Aerospace Village will provide our content and activities virtually for DEF CON 28.

The Aerospace Village will host a variety of virtual talks, workshops and CTFs with contributions from both public and private industry, all designed to provide education and awareness about aerospace cybersecurity and foster collaboration between the aerospace industry and the security researcher community.

We are working with the Air Force and Defense Digital Service as they transition the Hack-a-Sat finals into a virtual experience for both participants and spectators. More information on that will be posted here.

We look forward to providing a virtual experience that brings us all together and to do that we want to hear from you. Tell us what you want to see in a virtual Aerospace Village by filling out this quick form.

Join the official DEF CON 28 Discord Server (Aerospace Village Discord server will be closed 8/7-8/10) & follow us on Twitter @SecureAerospace for latest Aerospace Village updates and more!

Aerospace is a cornerstone of our global infrastructure and economy. While passenger safety is at an all time high, the increasing adoption of connected technologies exposes aircraft, airports, and the interdependent aerospace ecosystem to new types of risks. The consequences of cybersecurity failure can impact human life and public safety; a crisis of confidence in the trustworthiness of air travel can undermine economic and (inter)national security.
