DEFCON is the world's largest hacking conference, held in Las Vegas, Nevada. In 2012 it was held for the 20th time. The conference has strict no-filming policies, but for DEFCON 20, a documentary crew was allowed full access to the event. The film follows the four days of the conference, the events and people (attendees and staff), and covers history and philosophy behind DEFCON's success and unique experience. Written by

DEFCON has traditionally disallowed the sort of global filming of attendees and events as appears in the documentary. To mitigate this situation, the documentary crew wore bright orange vests with the word DOCUMENTARY on front and back, as well as the crew names, to enable attendees to see the crew was active and indicate they didn't want to be in the film, or to turn away from the filming.
