    What?

     

    This year we will have a Capture The Flag (CTF) contest focused on cloud-based PI System IaaS Security.

    As part of a team, your challenge is to break into the bomb-proof PI System IaaS environment, find vulnerabilities ("flags"), and exploit them. Security layers will gradually be removed so that more flags can be found.

    Points will be scored through a Jeopardy like scoreboard where flags are grouped by categories and points increase with complexity.

    OSIsoft cyber-security team experts will be on hand to teach and to facilitate discussion.

     

     

    When?

     

      Wednesday, April 29th
