Last week, we were invited to the RSA company event - Capture the Flag. This event took place in the Arrow ECS training room, and during an opening lecture, we listened to an introduction to the theory and marketing of the
RSA NetWitnessproduct. The theory, as well as the following game, was presented and supervised by the genuine expert Miha Mesojedec from the RSA company.
Afterwards, we found ourselves directly in the centre of all action and the promised collecting of flags begun. The event participants divided into 4 teams tasked with resolving the given tasks through data analysis and investigation. The playing field was visualised as a world map, where every continent would contain one security incident and each country on the given continent held one task for the security threat to be investigated and clarified. The assignments were composed of tasks gradually growing from easier up to complex ones, which were evaluated by points depending on the forensic analysis difficulty. A 3-hour limit was set for resolution of all assigned tasks; we utilized it in full and successfully resolved all the assignments.
When the time limit was up, announcement of the competition winners followed. The RSA – Capture the Flag winning team was the one including our co-workers Lukáš Solil and Jakub Kouba.
