Jeff Moss founder of DEFCON and Marc Rogers DEFCON security lead. Together they helped to forge an agreement between the ethical hacker community and the US Government to establish the first responsible disclosure mechanism to tip on active cyber threats to Government, Industry and Academia via the Department of Homeland Security using SecureDrop an anonymous cyber drop box. DEFCON will be hosting and securing the front end of the system to keep tipsters anonymous and safe from reprisal of black hat hackers or nation state actors who are using cyber tools for malicious purpose. This is the culmination of four years of work in which two very diverse communities, the government and the hacker community came together to make a positive difference for our nation and the world.
