For this event, BiaSciLab taught the kids how to get started hacking web apps in their own home lab.
In this talk BiaSciLab covers both the voting systems; mail in and electronic voting - Showing the pitfalls and solutions for each system!
This talk breaks down the myths and falsehoods around voting by mail.
As security experts around the world have proven, our voting equipment and infrastructure are very vulnerable to multiple types of attacks. Instead of focusing on problems and broken things, this talk will focus on simple fixes that vendors and governments can put into action right now.

My work from the DEFCON 26 r00tz Asylum was highlighted at the congressional hearing on election security. I was honored to be a guest at this hearing.
I am mentioned at the 00:28:00 mark as well as the 2:16:00 mark.
Not a talk per-say but I was lucky enough to be a judge at this amazing event. Junior high and high school students from the NYC boroughs submit their projects for this cutting edge event.
All four of my soldering classes were full and no one was able to solve my CTF!
I taught a Wireshark, and Scratch programming class at Spawn Camp. Spawn Camp is the kids track at BSides DE and is a lot of fun! (no recordings of Spawn Camp talks - Sorry!)
I did a talk on SQL injection for this event. SQL injection is still the top vulnerability for web applications. This talk was a dive into how SQL works, how injection works and some solutions for developers to protect their sites!

"Inspiring the Next Next Generation of Hackers"
Want to get started in the world of hacking but don’t know how? How do you inspire your kids to begin looking at things like a hacker? When should you start? What should you do? Eleven-year-old old hacker BiaSciLab and 14-year-old Kousei will answer these questions and more as they set adults at ease with bringing their kids into the hacker world. They will explain how they started their journeys, where they are planning to go, and how to get there. This talk will also have lots of great tips for adults starting out too.
Sending ciphered messages to your friends that the teacher can’t figure out!
This kid friendly lab and talk starts with a quick history of ciphers. Covering the classic substitution cyphers and why they are poor choices for messaging. Then moving into some simple methods to create complex ciphers. It ends with constructing a Pringles Enigma or Paper Enigma that the participants get to take home!
Note: Some math will be happening, so bring your smartphones or calculators!
Video Interview with other young hackers
BiaSciLab interviews Niko and kids at r00tz asylum, the kids mini-con inside DEFCON. (sorry for the bad audio!)
Article about the r00tz day I helped host at the Newark Museum in NJ. I also gave 3 talks on lockpicking and taught kids how to pick locks!
