WITI Las Vegas Regional Network
WITI Las Vegas monthly meeting - Security Technology Session - Capture The Flag

Tuesday, August 1, 2006
6:00pm - 8:00pm


Bring your tools, team, and laptops. There will be no attacks against your systems, only access to our targets.

Bring your team or join a team... but, be there for the event that allows you to be King of the Mountain.

There are rules to play and we need you to play by the rules...

For those yet to see live hacking, you will leave with new respect for those that came and claimed the flags and became King of the Mountain.
For those that came and tried your best, there is only one King of the Mountain, will it be you and your team?


Compromise each target system and gather the text file that is located in the root directory. There will be a total of seven (7) text files. The one or group who obtains the most text files will win the prize! Partial hints will be provided in each file. If additional assistance is needed members of Security University Team will be there to help.

In partnership with Black Hat Security Conference, come Hack for a Night and walk away with more awareness about security techniques and system vulnerabilities. This will be a fun-filled evening, geared towards the novice and expert alike!
