  • Amature CTF

    If memory servs me correctly there was a small atempt to set up an amature CTF contest for last year (dc12) that never made it off the ground. On behalf of DC949, i would like to set this up for real. The basic concept that we are thinking of useing is the intrusensec contest as a base "www.hackerplayground.com". basicly, we set up 3 systems, with 3 diffrent os's and teams or individuals simply walk up, plug in (or wifi in) and atempt to hack one of the 3 systems. once hacked the team or individual recives points, but the game is not over. Once inside the uesr must secure the box against any other rooters. Contestents will also recive points for the amount of time they are able to protect the box. The winner of course will be the contestent with the most points, prizes (if there are any :P) will be handed out on the last day. We at dc949 are willing to supply all of the personel and hardware for this contest if you all think it's a good one... please post here what you think

      The amature CTF contest idea in general is a good one, just coming up with a good way to run it is the hard part. I'd be interested to see a group pull it off.

        Amature CTF has been running for years... Don't believe me? Just hook your system to the network....

            Maybe the scorers can offer one of the CTF teams additional points for every hour they let one newbie hang around and ask questions. It may be just enough of a distraction to warrant points, and an education.

                As Tierra said, it's a good concept in theory. But how would you go about pulling it off?

                  the same way as intrusionsec... "see above title post". basicly, we have 3 boxes... one mac one windows one linux. people hack them. then once there hacked there job is to defend the box from other atackers.. who ever holds any one box the longest wins :P. scoreing will be done just like the real ctf, we will check for a value on one of the servers.

                    Okay this sounds like a wonderful game... but I am such a newbie I could only sit there and watch my windoze system be infultrated... it's sad. I am just recently starting into this security field independently. God help me at DC lol. Ah well sadly I can't bring my box... no laptop, and I seriously doubt they want me to carry my desktop to DC13. lol.
                    We thought technology would be the answer, instead it brought more questions. We thought that hackers were the answer, instead we got laughed at. We've resolved that books are the answer, they make a good fuel source for fires.

                      "They" don't care, but I'm telling you it would be a dumb idea. I do bring my laptop, but only because it is convenient. There really isn't much as many computer-related activities at Defcon as you might imagine.

                        Heh k thanks. The "they" I was talking about while considering the Hotel and such, was more the party I intend to travel with to DefCon. ^.^ I just got an interesting link from part of our forum so I have some back reading to do now. I'll go back to lurking and be silent until such a time that I can offer some relevent information.

                            The obvious answer would be DT.
