  • Info about Forensics CTF at DEF CON 24

    I am not affiliated with this event and nothing I write is authoritative for it.

    The details I have on this include personal information and details for goons that run CEV more than for attendees.
    What exists below is a summary based on what I think would go in a program without those details:

    Originally posted by details
    A CTF contest based on defense and system forensics tools and skills to recover lost data, and attempt to understand cause by examination of effect and artifacts left-behind on a system

    Imagine around 20 puzzles of varying levels of difficulty.

    Example of simple task: recover a deleted file and determine which user was responsible.
    Example of difficult puzzle: perform investigation of complicated attack scenario and explain all the steps of that attack (what is really happened).

    Tasks/Puzzles can be attempted by contestants as they examine pre-configured Virtual Machines.

    Forensics CTF lasts 2 to 3 days.

    At the end of the last day detailed answers for all tasks/puzzles will be published and the winner/-s will be determined.
    The details of this contest may change without update here.
