ROOTCON - Premier Hacker Conference in the Philippines
ROOTCON comes from the two words "ROOT" (super user on Unix systems) and "CON" (conference). ROOTCON operation started 27-December-2008, registered as DEFCON Group 6332, and carried the name DEFCONPH.
The group held two small gatherings under DEFCONPH - known as the BeerTalks.
After the two consecutive gatherings, DEFCON brought up their copyright protection concerns, having observed that the Philippine Hacker and InfoSec group was carrying a name very similar to theirs.
DEFCONPH was then renamed PinoyGreyHat, under which one conference was held before the founder finally decided to rebrand to a more neutral and conference-friendly name: ROOTCON. The name was officially changed on 09-August-2010.
With the same crew and team on board, ROOTCON is still the premier hacking conference in the Philippines.
