Last Saturday, I had a remarkable experience at a roadshow organised by the Centre for Strategic Infocomm Technologies (CSIT). The objective for the roadshow was tuned towards recruitment; to get some talented folks who are graduating from universities to join them. So I went with a few of my friends who will soon graduate from NUS (National University of Singapore).
Interestingly, CSIT organised a mini-capture-the-flag competition. There’s an attacking server that will attack the participants’ Web server every 5 minutes (points will be deducted if successful). One of the objective is to secure the Web server. In the network, there’s also a vulnerable server which you can break in and capture the flag. Each flag captured will increase your points.
The competition only lasted for 30 minutes. Unfortunately, there’s no prize for the winning team. 😦 Good fun though. 🙂
