Test your skills across a range of systems as you explore the virtual city of Sunnyville, traversing a series of challenges to find and capture flags hidden throughout the city’s network infrastructure. Compete as an individual or in teams of two, using penetration testing and digital forensic skills to gather clues and collect evidence, rising in the ranks with each flag captured. Set your own pace as you pursue threads of artifacts in a timed, scored environment. Each thread is built around a specific security skill set, such as web, SQL, and password security, and recovering artifacts gets harder as you progress through this interactive, adaptive challenge. Hosted by the Florida CyberHub, this event includes prizes for the top individual player and top team. More details to come!
