The ICS Village delivers a safe, yet realistic environment where researchers can learn to assess, enhance and defend industrial environments using real components such as Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), Human Machine Interfaces (HMI), Remote Telemetry Units (RTU), actuators and miniature robotic arms to simulate a realistic environment by using components commonly found throughout different industrial sectors. Offering a customized, simulated, real-world environment for security researchers to interact with ICS devices and systems,
IoT Village advocates for advancing security in the Internet of Things (IoT) industry through bringing researchers and industry together. IoT Village hosts talks by expert security researchers, interactive hacking labs, live bug hunting in the latest IoT tech, and competitive IoT hacking contests. Over the years IoT Village has served as a platform to showcase and uncover hundreds of new vulnerabilities, giving attendees the opportunity to learn about the most innovative techniques to both hack and secure IoT.
