SCRAM CTF Hack-a-Thon
Altamira Corp is hosting a Hacking CTF in the area. It will be held on Saturday, August 10th from 9:00am to 5:00pm at the Marriott in Annapolis Junction, Maryland.
The CTF will take place in flat network environment with two subnet levels. Fifteen subnets will be parceled out between the teams, which will include team servers, gateways, and sensors. In the top level we will provide the required inter-connectivity in order to allow the game to progress.
The team servers host a rebooted retro-style Atari game called “Scram” which each team is tasked to defend, and to attack the opposing team servers. The game is designed to represent a nuclear reactor, which must be played and kept functional throughout the competition in order to passively gain points. There are a multitude of services attached to the internals of the game, which, if compromised will cause damage to the reactor or cause the team to begin losing points. It is the teams responsibility to protect these services, and repair them as necessary while attacking the enemy teams.
The idea behind this stemmed from the current landscape of cyber warfare, in that civilian and privately owned infrastructure that is essential for the daily operation of the USA is at the highest risk of being compromised. We've heard how the cyber realm can reach out to damage or even destroy operations in the physical world with hybrid-worms such as Stuxnet or Conficker. The potential damage from disabled servers or lost intellectual property is staggering. As cyber security professionals, we have a long way to go to protect these vital areas, and not much time to do it! As many have said, the cyber war has already begun.
The prizes for competing are as follows:
• First place: $1500 awarded to the highest scoring team
• Second place: $750 awarded to the second highest scoring team
• Third place: $500 awarded to the third highest scoring team
If the prizes alone aren't enough to attract you, there is an OPEN BAR!!!
The Bar will be serving from 4pm until the end of the event. If you want to drink before 4pm, you are welcome to bring your own!
Come show off your skills, earn some extra money, and above all, drink some free sponsored Red Bull ™ and have some fun with professionals in your career field! We hope to learn new exciting techniques from all of you, and maybe get a chance to show off some of our own!
