Bring your laptop and win prizes! This year the ICS Village will be running Hack the Plan[e]t Capture the Flag (CTF) contest that features Howdy Neighbor and the Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Range. This first of its kind CTF will be a slice of modern city life integrating both Internet of Things (IoT) and ICS environments with interactive components for competitors to test their skills and knowledge. The ICS Village delivers a compelling experience using real IT and industrial equipment for all skill levels and practitioner types.
Howdy Neighbor is an interactive IoT CTF challenge where competitors can test their hacking skills and learn about common oversights made in development, configuration, and setup of IoT devices. Howdy Neighbor is a miniature home - made to be “smart” from basement to garage. It’s a test-bed for reverse engineering and hacking distinct consumer-focused smart devices, and to understand how the (in)security of individual devices can implicate the safety of your home or office, and ultimately your family or business. Within Howdy Neighbor there are over 18 emulated or real devices and over 40 vulnerabilities that have been staged as challenges. Each of the challenges are of varying levels to test a competitors ability to find vulnerabilities in an IoT environment. Howdy Neighbor’s challenges are composed of a real or simulated devices controlled by an App or Network interface and additional hardware sensors; each Howdy Neighbor device contains 1 to 3 staged vulnerabilities which when solved present a key for scoring/reporting that it was discovered.
In the same vein, this CTF challenge will also leverage the ICS Village’s ICS Range to provide an additional testbed for more advanced challenges in critical infrastructure and ICS environments.
On Saturday, August 11th from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm CybatiWorks and Claroty are providing a unique 3-hour hands-on workshop designed to enlighten your perspective and hone your skills with industrial malware. This 30-seat workshop (first come-first served) will encompass ICS Security Fundamentals 101 and ICS Security Advanced 201. Suited for stepping both novice and intermediate participants through the risks and mitigations of critical infrastructure and control system cybersecurity. Register here!
