“We deal in deception here. What we do not deal with is self-deception. Five years from now you could be anything else in the world, but you will not be a LayerOne (De)Obfuscation contest winner.”

You sure about that?

LayerOne 2015 is proud to announce the return of the (De)Obfuscation-Contest! The (De)Obfuscated is a reversing/code focused CTF specializing in the worst of the worst when it comes to code and binary analysis. Prepare for blood, sweat, and headaches; this contest will test the limits of your knowledge on reverse engineering, programming, code obfuscation, and poorly written crime-noir themed programming jokes. Did you miss last year or want to get some reps in before the 2015 contest? The 2014 (De)Obfuscation Contest website is available for practice!

The LayerOne Staff

Hebocon: Robot Battles!

Posted on 09 March 2015 (0)

Hebocon is a Robotic Battle for those on an extreme budget. Originating in Japan, it pits poorly constructed robots, modified electric toys and last-minute creations against one another in a Sumo-style arena. Sound awesome? It is. Watch this video for a quick introduction to this sport of kings:

LayerOne 2015 is proud to announce our very own Hebocon Battle Royale graciously hosted by Trent of Mag Laboratory. We hope to see the best of your worst robo-sumo submissions! Contest will be held on Sunday, May 24th in the pool area (exact time to be announced soon). Full details are available on the contest page.

Don’t forget, the Hardware-Hacking Village will be fully stocked for all your last-minute robot needs.

Sincerely,
The LayerOne Staff
