Have you ever wanted to learn how remote exploits actually work against real systems? Ever wanted to experiment with tools like Metasploit but never had the opportunity? Do you write your own exploits and want to try them out without crashing your own servers? (ISC)² and the CIAS are proud to present the Cyber Challenge, a network assessment and network defense competition, at the CyberSecureGov conference. The competition is free and open to all conference attendees in a multi-session format throughout the conference. Prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers from each competition day. Never done anything like this before? The Cyber Challenge environment contains “how to” videos and practice targets - giving you an ideal, risk-free environment to expand your skillset.
During the Cyber Challenge, a set of virtual machine targets is made available during each session. Competitors must access/exploit a target, plant their flag in the identified critical service on the target, and then defend that target from other competitors. Targets are checked for ownership and functionality every 2-3 minutes. Players accumulate points for every target they own that is still operational when checked. Targets are weighted with more difficult targets worth more points than others. The Cyber Challenge environment contains targets for every skill level from novice to assessment professional.
