Winning second prize in the qualifying round, the ISIT-DTU1 became the only team in the Central region to advance to the finals. Both ISIT-DTU2 and ISIT-DTU3 won third prizes.
In the qualifying round in the South, contestants from 44 teams from 17 colleges and universities were tested on their ability to take counter-measures against cyber-attacks from their opponents and defend their own computer networks at the same time. This year the tasks will be more difficult, requiring contestants to handle more complicated software scenarios.
The questions included sections on:
- pwnable: exploiting software, buffer overflow, format string and shellcode bugs
- Reverse engineering: focus on reverse engineering code source and how to unpack packers and crypters for software protection
- Web: techniques for attacking web applications
- Network/Forensic: investigating, analyzing and tracing digital cases
- Crypto/ACM: puzzle-decode, attacking encryption algorithms and using programming & algorithmic skills to solve games
The diversified test puts pressure on the teams and requires flexibility and quick thinking.
