Tamper-Evident Contest: King of the Hill

Posted on 19 April 2016 (0)

LayerOne 2016 is proud to present another Tamper-Evident Contest brought to you by the fine folks of the MFP Tamper Team!

Do you have extensive knowledge of defeats for tamper-evident devices? Or maybe you’ve heard about the tamper contests and would like to try your hand at it? We have just the challenge for you: King of the Seal! Come one, come all – play against your friends!

Here’s how it works:

1. To enter, you must open and close (unseal/reseal) a tamper evident device without visible, tactile, or olfactory evidence that you did so.
2. Turn in your entry to the friendly Tamper Village staff. We will rate your attempt.
3. If you’re better than the current best for that category, your entry will become the new king of the hill! The tampered seal will be placed atop a pedestal and displayed for all to see.
5. Until someone comes and does a better job, you hack. Try again. Do better!

Additional Rules:
* Max team size: 1
* Tamper Evident Staff evaluations are swift and brutal. Try harder.

There will be multiple seals available for your purview including mechanical and adhesive seals. Old favorites and new challenges will be present for you to play with. This is an excellent way for you to practice tampering seals you have never seen and beating those that have frustrated you for years.

Posted on 13 April 2016 (0)

LayerOne is proud to announce the return of the (De)Obfuscation-Contest! I Wanna Be (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 programming jokes. Did you miss last year or want to get some reps in before this year’s contest? The previous years’ problems are available for practice!

Reverse engineering not your specialty? There’s also the LayerOne Capture The Flag which focuses on penetration testing, exploitation, forensics, and more!
