OpenSOC is coming to Sp4rkCon 

Get ready for Sp4rkCon's first ever Blue Team Capture-the-Flag (CTF) competition 

 

OpenSOC is a Digital Forensics, Incident Response (DFIR) and Threat Hunting challenge meant to teach and test practical incident response skills in an environment that closely resembles a real enterprise network. This virtual environment has what you would expect to find in an enterprise network, including: workstations, servers, firewalls, email, web browsing, user activity, etc. Simulated users are browsing the Internet, downloading files, watching videos, and accessing LAN resources. This creates a high fidelity training environment for unleashing real-world attacks and testing a responder’s ability to filter out the noise and find malicious activity on the network.

 

This isn’t just another CTF. It is built on the Network Defense Range that trains real-world responders to handle real-world situations. What’s even better? 100% of the security tools demonstrated on OpenSOC are free and open source. These projects include Wazuh + ossec, Kolide + osquery, Suricata, Moloch, OPNsense, pfSense and Graylog bringing it all together in an awesome way.

 

Challenge your friends, learn new skills, and earn bragging rights at Sp4rkCon 2020! Details for how to sign up will be provided to registered attendees before the conference.
