Adversary Village
Adversary Village Icon


Adversary Village is a community initiative which purely focuses on Adversary simulation/emulation, threat/APT emulation, Breach and adversarial attack simulation, supply chain security simulation, adversary tactics, life, adversary philosophy, survival skills and Purple teaming.Adversary Village will be organizing technical talks, workshops, live demos, Adversary Wars CTF, panel discussions and other hands-on activities on adversary simulation, emulation and purple teaming.

This is different from any of what has been covered in the existing villages, because our focus is on simulation of the actions of a threat actor or an adversary and this being simulated here. As this domain matures, we anticipate active participation from enterprises, as such simulations would help immensely towards internal capacity building from having a "live fire" training opportunity. An increasing number of researchers too are focusing on building tools and techniques for simulation of various adversarial actions against an organization or Supply chain, instead of actual real-world exploitation.
The goal of the Adversary Village would be to build a vendor neutral open security community for the researchers and organizations, who are putting together new means and methodologies towards the simulation/emulation of adversary tactics then purple teaming.

Adversary Wars CTF
Adversary Village will be hosting a CTF named "Adversary Wars", where the participants will have to pose as adversaries and simulate adversarial actions against each element of the dummy target organization.
Our end-goal is to build a CTF platform for adversary simulation/emulation knowledge sharing and exercises.
Adversary Wars would have real world simulation CTF scenarios and challenges, where the adversaries can simulate attacks and learn new attack vectors, TTPs, techniques, etc.
There would be combined exercises which include different levels of threat/adversary emulation and purple teaming.

Adversary Simulator booth
Adversary Simulator booth has hands-on adversary emulation plans specific to a wide variety of threat-actors, these are meant to provide the participant/visitor with a better understanding of the Adversary tactics.
This is a volunteer assisted activity where anyone, both management and technical folks can come-in and experience different categories of simulation, emulation and purple scenarios. Adversary Simulator booth will be having a lab environment focused on recreating enterprise infrastructure, aimed at simulation and emulating various adversaries. Visitors will be able to view, simulate and control various TTPs used by adversaries.
The simulator is meant to be a learning experience, irrespective of whether one is hands-on with highly sophisticated attack tactics or from the management.
