BSIDESNOVA TEAM CTF | DEFEND AND CONQUER by HACKER GROUND (Level of Difficulty: Advanced)
OBJECTIVE: This CTF is a combination of a series of challenges and boot2root in order to pivot into a final network and compromise all machines. Points will be earned by completing mini challenges, obtaining low level access, and obtaining high level access on each machine. Flags will also be hidden throughout key locations in every machine. The CTF will test your ability to think critically while under pressure and will include challenges such as forensics, reverse engineering, web attacks, client attacks and general misconfigurations. There will be a combination of several different operating systems. Size limit will be 6 people to a team. Additional rules will be discussed at the time of the CTF.
A Kali Linux virtual machine will come with all the tools necessary in order to participate and is recommended but not required. Any operating system should work for this CTF and we encourage you to use what you are most comfortable with. Make sure you have any tools you require installed before the day of the CTF in case there any issues with network latency. Access to the CTF will be through our custom Wifi network, it’s recommended you bridge your VM networks so you don’t see issues with shells and exploits (though if you’d prefer to setup port-forwarding that’s fine too, though it’s up to you to ensure your shells will connect).
WINNER OF THE “DEFEND & CONQUER” CTF WILL TAKE HOME $1000.00 CASH courtesy of BSidesNOVA !
HB CTF by HYPERQUBE.IO (Level of Difficulty: Intermediate to Advanced)
The HyperQube CTF is designed to simulate a small business network. It contains a Web Server, Database, Domain Controller, and many other common targets found in small businesses. Built by professional penetration testers, all vulnerabilities were encountered on real engagements. Deployed on the HyperQube platform, all participants get their own independent copy of the infrastructure.
Happy Hunting from the HyperQube team
