Posted on 06 May 2015 (0)

CRIME PAYS.

LayerOne CTF, brought to you by v&.

It seems like every day you hear about another company being plundered for personal information, passwords, and credit cards. Why try to keep your information safe when you can use another person’s info from the black market? Would it be worth the effort to assume other identities for pennies on the dollar? Find out if crime pays at the LayerOne 2015 Capture the Flag contest!

No pre-registration necessary! Sign up on-site, get plugged in, and get started. Contest begins on Saturday, May 23rd at 10:00 in the Hacking Village (ELAN meeting room).

Full contest rules area available on the Capture the Flag contest page. Please remember that this contest’s network should be considered extremely hostile!

Sincerely,
The LayerOne Staff

The Room – 2015 Tamper Contest!

Posted on 26 April 2015 (0)


 
A meeting. A package. A traitor.
Who can you trust?

The exclusive LayerOne “intelligence sport” contest returns for another year of espionage and intrigue!

In THE ROOM, you join an elite black bag team tasked with setting up surveillance in a hotel room. You’ll be monitoring communication between a suspected spy and your source. Bug the room to document the spy’s handoff of classified material — tamper the package to discredit him. Be careful…a mistake in tampering the package means certain death for your source!

Visit the Tamper-Evident Contest page for instructions on how to register and other contest information as it is posted. PLEASE NOTE: the space for this contest is extremely limited, so sign up now if you want to guarantee your spot!

Don’t forget to pre-register for LayerOne 2015 early to get a discount on entry!
