News of General Alexander’s talk at Def Con broke on Friday. Up until that point, the 12:00 Track 1 slot was kept secret, leaving attendees to the world’s largest hacker conference to speculate. The buzz was that it would be something interesting – if only because this year is Def Con’s 20th anniversary.
General Alexander will be giving a talk titled "Shared Values, Shared Responsibility," which is outlined as a presentation that will focus on the shared core values between the hacker community and the government’s cyber community. Namely, the vision of the Internet as a positive force, the fact that information increases value by sharing, the respect and protection of privacy and civil liberties, and the opposition to malicious and criminal behavior.
Def Con runs July 26-29 at the Rio in Las Vegas, admission is $200 cash only at the door.
