By popular demand, the hardware CTF organized by Quarkslab team is back for a third edition!

Ever wondered how to break a smart lock? How to spy on embedded devices? How do car chips work? How to desolder and recall a flash chip? Then this CTF is for you!

We've got plenty of challenges related to various themes such as RFID, Bluetooth, automotive, side-channel analysis, (de)soldering, radio, and much more. We will provide the hardware hacking tools you might need (soldering iron, logic analyzer, ...) as well as guidance on how to use them.

Just grab your PC and come try to solve our challenges. You'll have fun, learn new skills and who knows, maybe use these skills to break real embedded devices and propose a talk for next year!

Requirements: a PC with Linux is needed for some of the challenges, but we've also some other ones that can be done without PC.

How to participate: once the CTF is open, come to our booth, register a new team and start playing!

The CTF will be open from 06/03/2020 10:00 am to 07/03/2020 02:00 pm IST.

Red Team Village is a community-driven combat readiness platform for Red teaming and Adversarial attack simulation assessments. This community is managed by a group of cybersecurity and red team tactics enthusiasts.

We build real-life CTF scenarios with corporate network architecture and defensive mechanisms. The CTF players need to do the red teaming against this infrastructure which is protected and monitored by Blue/SoC teams.

Technical details – CTF challenges:

  • The players/adversaries need to the red team against the target company ‘Victim Corporation’, within a minimal timeframe. There will be Windows Active Directory infrastructure, IoT drop boxes, even Phishing campaigns, Digital Lockers, and physical challenges.
  • The main challenge would be, exploiting a target monitored by the Blue/SOC team and get the flags without getting caught in their Radar. (AV/EDR bypass)
  • Idea is to touch a little bit of everything, RECON to Post exploitation techniques.

CTF operators:

Abhijith (Abx)

Sreehari (invisible)

Thoufeeque (tfq)

Rules and guidelines:

Visit our village, once the CTF is open to register and start playing the attack simulation. Participants need to carry their laptops and Internet dongles. Do not attack the CTF platform, SoC platform or the fellow players The winning teams can bag exciting goodies, c0c0n conference passes, and other prizes.
