  • Defcon CTF moves to the Rio for 2011 and HBGary is awarded contract for sheep stalls!

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    1 APRIL 2011

    DEFCON CTF QUALIFIER ANNOUNCED

    Defense Diutinus Technologies Corp (ddtek) is pleased to announce the round of qualification for DEFON 19 CTF.

    Bigger, badder venue = bigger, badder CTF.

    DDTEK <3 pwnage[1]

    Get your supply of Tiger Blood Chronic handy and get your mangina ready to be pwned...the competition for these coveted spots will be held over 53 non-stop hours 3-5 June (US time zones).

    The qualification round will yet again be in the style of game board, but answers need not be in the form of a question.
    Categories will require teams to demonstrate the superiority of hacking across a vast realm of security knowledge and practice, and their ability to form coherent questions.

    Quit "playing" with your shake-weight on leatherchapsroulette.com long enough to visit ddtek.biz to register. Only those that pre-register for quals are permitted entry. Each individual should register, first team member to register will receive a team code to share with other mates before they register.

    Registration site: https://www.ddtek.biz/reg/dc19_reg.jsp
    Registration opens: 01 Apr 2011 00:00:00 UTC
    Registration ends: 03 Jun 2011 00:00:00 UTC

    Qualifications open: 03 Jun 2011 19:00:00 UTC
    Qualifications ends: 06 Jun 2011 00:00:00 UTC

    In hysteretical fashion ACME Pharm will be automatically be permitted contest entry. NEW THIS YEAR! We are also pre-qualifying teams from two other worldwide CTFs! We have scientifically chosen the iCTF and Codegate contests as potentially worthy qualifiers for 2011. The winners of said competitions have reserved seats at this years show. As always, pre-qualified teams that don't participate in quals should be ashamed by their weakness and apply to be a CEH or SANS instructor / cyber security poser. Depending on how these teams fare, future winners of these contests may or may not be invited again, so you bitches better represent!

    It wouldn't be fair to reduce the number of spots available to the public at large, so we're upping the number of tables in Vegas to 12 total. Yes, when the dust clears the _12_ best will be invited to join us this summer in sin city for the annual DEFCON deathmatch.

    Also, DDTEK is tired of this bullshit[2] and has decided to fix it by jumping on the certification band wagon! Be sure to swing by the CTF room to attempt to obtain the GIAC-OFFENSIVE certification in person. It is _certainly_ the only cert anyone wants to be affiliated with. HR panties and manties are definitely gonna get wet over this one.

    I have nothing to do with CTF, but people have been talking about how they are excited to start, and are counting down the time...

    If this is still on schedule, UTC 19:00:00 is less than 30 minutes away.
    Code:
    $ date -u

    I am hoping for a leader-board to show progress of various teams in nearly real-time. I wonder what they will put up for public view.

    [edit:added]

    Also, if you are not following them on twitter, you missed this:
