ITEN Wired Cyber Competition

ITEN Wired is pleased to announce the 1st Annual ITEN Wired Cyber Competition. The competition will consist of three concurrent tracks provided by our Cyber Range Sponsor, Metova CyberCENTS.

Cyber Defense

Can you defend the network against an advanced and persistent cyber adversary? Are you able to identify and respond to a cyber attack? (Registered Teams Only)

Selected teams will be tasked with defending their networks against pre-programmed cyber traffic/attack scenarios. Teams will be scored on their ability to defend and respond to the cyber events. The team with the highest score will be named the Cyber Defense Champion.

Cyber Offense

Are you able to identify and exploit vulnerable cyber systems? Can you compromise a system to degrade services and destroy functionality? (Open to Everyone)
Attackers will be tasked with exploiting a suite of highly vulnerable e-commerce systems defended by the selected teams. Attackers are subjectively rated based upon their ability to degrade e-commerce services and obtain privileged access and destroy system capabilities. The individual that causes the most disruption will be named the Cyber-Offense Champion.

Capture the Flag

Are you able to crack the code to complex cyber puzzles? Can you solve complex engineering and cryptography problems? (Open to Everyone)
Participants will have their skills tested in reverse-engineering, network sniffing, protocol analysis, system administration, reverse-engineering, forensics, and cryptanalysis. This web-based problem-solving competition will involve a wide-range of cyber puzzles/questions of varying difficulty. The individual with the highest score will be named the CTF Champion.

The Cyber Range infrastructure will be provided by the Metova CyberCENTS Cyber Operations Enhanced Network and Training Simulators (CENTS®). The pre-programmed traffic/attacks will be provided by the Metova Sentinel, Legion, AutoBuild, Myrmidon, Reconstitution (SLAM-R©) cyber effect appliance. The emulated internet will be provided by the Metova Range Global Internet (RGI®) appliance. The Capture the Flag infrastructure will be provided by Facebook CTF and managed by Metova CyberCENTS.
