richSEC: connecting security

 

 

 

In conjunction with the Richmond-based SecuraBit podcast, members of the richSEC organization are creating a Capture the Flag (CTF) event for RVAsec.

Rather than being a typical CTF-playground for people to show off their tech skills, the goal of this environment to be an interactive learning/demonstration of real world scenarios that affect anyone that has a computer network.

The team has created an “everyman” type of CTF, specifically designed not to be elitist or intimidating, and also won’t take up all of a participant’s time at the con; a CTF where any level of challenger can participate. Whether you’re a student, a hobbyist, or don’t even have the word “security” in your job description, we’ve got something you will be able to play with and actually learn from!

 


 

WHEN: 06/01/2013 – 10am-2pm.  The exact time is subject to change but it will be on Saturday.

WHERE: We will have a table at the conference.  You must be a registered conference attendee to participate.

WHO: Living humanoid-ish… seriously, this is for everyone from hobbyists, sys/net admins, infosec pros, tinkerers, makers, fixers and breakers… come out and play. We’ll all teach, learn and grow together!

WHAT TO DO:

  • DO bring a network-enabled laptop.

  • DO have the ability to run Backtrack 5r3 (http://www.backtrack-linux.org/downloads/), Pentoo (http://www.pentoo.ch/) or Kali Linux (http://www.kali.org/) either as a virtual machine, from bootable media (CD/DVD flash drive), or installed as your OS. Most of the scenarios in the CTF can be completed with the tools within these security-centric Linux distributions. Not a requirement, per se, but a BIG recommendation.

  • DO understand that the CTF network is a closed private network, and will not have Internet access. CTF Participants will have the ability to connect to a separate guest wireless network with Internet access for research, tool downloads, etc., during the event, but will have to disconnect from the CTF network to do so.

  • DO listen to and respect any instructions and guidance provided at the event. We want to provide an environment that is conducive to learning, tinkering, exploring and having a good time.

WHAT NOT TO DO:

  • DON’T use words or phrases like “irregardless”, “all of the sudden”, “cybergeddon” or “cyber Pearl Harbor”.

  • DON’T feed or pet any of the conference organizers or volunteers.

  • DON’T attack any other CTF participants or any VCU devices (logically, physically or emotionally).

Pre-Register: If you plan to participate in the CTF we ask that you pre-register here: http://securabit.com/ctf/ for administrative purposes.  The first 20 people will receive a free 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive! (You have to show up and participate!)

Sponsor: We are still seeking sponsors to help with the CTF costs.  If you are interested or know someone that would be willing to support the CTF please contact sponsors@rvasec.com

Hope to see you there!  If you have any questions please let us know!
