Kiwicon is an all-ages computer security conference (Hacker con) organised by members of the computer security community of New Zealand, held in Wellington annually since 2007.

Kiwicon provides a venue for hackers and computer security professionals as well as other interested parties to get together and share knowledge, war stories, and beer. In the spirits of H.O.P.E. and DEF CON, Kiwicon intends to bring together the best and brightest from academia, the computer security industry, the hacker underground, those who manage critical infrastructure and law enforcement.

The conference format allows for talks, informal discussions, socialising, key signing parties and competitions. Talks are of various lengths on a wide range of subjects, usually including a wide range of modern exploit techniques, security philosophy, New Zealand hacker history, related New Zealand law, and a few talks on more esoteric topics.
