Последние приготовления к Positive Hack Days

Полным ходом идет подготовка к одному из центральных событий Positive Hack Days 2011 - командным соревнованиями по защите информации PHD CTF 2011.

В этом году соревнования пройдут под кодовым названием:

Продолжая традицию, заложенную на Ruscripto CTF 2010 подходим к CTF не как к набору разрозненных задач, а как к реальной ситуации, элементы которой мы черпаем из своего опыта работ по оценке защищенности.

В прошлом году игрокам CTF пришлось побывать в шкуре ИТ-директора компании "Пицца Коза Ностра" пытающемуся предотвратить крах ИТ-зависимого бизнеса в условиях жесткой и невсегда легальной конкурентной борьбы.

В этом году командам придется примерить форму капитана войск связи, сражающемуся на полях кибернетической войны за управление Монолитом внеземного происхождения. Генератором, обеспечивающим производство 90% всей энергии, потребляемой землянами.

Правда, Монолит не генератор вовсе. И не монолит... Но об этом - 19 мая, в 17:45. Не раньше.

Несмотря на фантастический оттенок легенды, задачи CTF взяты из реальной жизни. Это то, с чем приходится сталкиваться атакующим и защитникам каждый день. И по сути - PHD CTF 2011 это полевые учения.
