DEF CON started back in 1993, originally intended as a party for members of "Platinum Net," a Fido protocol-based hacking network out of Canada. Typically held in the last week of July or the first week of August, DEF CON has evolved into a much larger, more prominent event for information security professionals, attended by hackers, cryptographers, lawyers, law enforcement agents, and a variety of professionals representing a range of disciplines.
