The 2008 iCTF
This edition of the competition was inspired by the “24” TV series. The 40 participanting teams had to help Jack Bauer to break into a network belonging to a cyber-terrorist organization in order to stop a nuclear bomb from detonating.
Each team was given a separate multi-host network that was their target. The teams had to work through a public web server, a host with multiple financial applications, and a development network in order to reach the host that controls the bomb and disarm the bomb itself.
