Upcoming Events

Thursday, September 20th at 6pm – Capture the Flag(CTF) with Daniel Likarish

Welcome back from the summer hiatus!

OWASP Boulder resumes in September with a Capture the Flag (CTF) meeting. Next spring, SnowFROC 2013 will feature a CTF-style hacking competition organized by local volunteers. Come and share your CTF experience, ideas, and bad code. We will discuss tournament format, rules, and framework.

To kick-off the project, Professor Daniel Likarish of Regis University, organizer of the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (RMCCDC), will share his experiences in building a CTF tournament from scratch.

Although this meeting is oriented on developing a CTF tournament, we will discuss a variety of other current events.

About Professor Likarish: Dan is an assistant professor in the School of Computing & Information Sciences with responsibility for Information Assurance program coordination, students and research at Regis University. He is Director of the Colorado Front-range Center on Information Assurance Studies. His research and teaching interests are in the design and implementation of student cyber security competitions, security of critical SCADA infrastructure and virtualization of student lab exercises. He has installed and is calibrating a Radio Telescope for use as a K-Collegiate teaching instrument and directs the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition. He is the recipient of various state, industry and federal grants and awards.

About the RMCCDC: Seven teams representing Kansas, Colorado and New Mexico attended the competition consisting of a two-day scenario-driven event with teams responsible for recovery and maintenance of business services, processes and defense of the network after a gaming company was successfully attacked. The event provided an opportunity to capture several data sets; live attack and response data by the Red Team, Blue Team interviews as well as post event participant surveys. The competition included cadets from the Air Force Academy who went on to finish in second place at the National CCDC in April of 2012.

Seating is limited! We can only accommodate seating for those who RSVP. If you have a change of plans, please update your RSVP to allow those who are on the waiting list.

The meeting will be held at the Aerstone offices on 17th and Pearl. Parking is available through the Whittier Neighborhood Zone for up to three hours daily. As always, food and drinks are free and there will be an open networking session after the meeting.
