Participants will be provided with a network packet capture file and other forensic artifacts that they must analyze to identify devices, network activity, and attacks. Participants will have to answer questions about devices connected to the network, as well as SCADA technology and protocols. The quiz is designed for an intermediate skill level, and questions can be answered using the Wireshark packet analysis tool, and additional reference information to be provided.
Registration will open on February 12, 2021, and will close on March 28, 2021. The quiz will be available from February 19, 2021 until March 28, 2021.
Registered users will each have three attempts to take the quiz. For
each of your three attempts, you will have 24 hours from the time you
begin the quiz to complete it, and you may only submit your answers once
per attempt. For each attempt, you must submit the answers
within 24 hours of when you start, or by 11:59pm PDT on March 28, 2021
(whichever comes first). If you still have the quiz open in
your browser at closing time, or if you leave the quiz and don't come
back to submit, it will automatically submit whatever answers you have
entered so far. If you stay on the same page for more than four hours,
your session may time out. Your answers on each page will be
automatically saved every five minutes, and when you click the Next
button at the bottom of each page. You may leave and come back, but you
must come back to finish before time expires or the quiz closes!
Rankings will be determined based on who achieves the highest score in the shortest amount of time. In the event of a tie score, the shortest time is the winner. Your highest score among your three attempts will be counted as your final score. The time is calculated based on when you first open the quiz and when you submit your final answers; the timer DOES NOT stop if you leave and come back! For example, if you start the quiz at 2:00pm, work on it for an hour, then come back the next day at 1:00pm and submit your final answers at 1:05pm, your time would be 23:05:00.
Any user found to have registered for more than one account, or users found to have shared answers, will be disqualified and ineligible for any awards, prizes, scholarships or other opportunities presented as a result of Cyber Quests.
