A gripping story of con artists and activists, this story follows a crew of elite hackers, new recruits, anarchists, and impersonators as they attempt to take down their most challenging target to date - the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Gathered under the cover of HackerCon in Washington DC - a place for security experts, penetration testers, and technology geeks to meet and discuss the latest hacks and exploits - this group of renegades plot their attack on the federal government for its objectionable security practices. Thought provoking and entertaining, this fast-paced adventure is based on years of research in the hacker community, addresses many contemporary social issues, and provides an overview of how hacking really works.
