Event Closed

  • An online event Saturday, July 25th, 2020 between 4PM – 11PM (Eastern Time).
  • To be eligible:
    • Be from a CyberSCI regional winning team from our events in January to March 2020.
    • Entry Requirements: Each team must develop and contribute to the competition’s Cyber Range with a “vulnerable VM” (a cyber target).
  • During the event, attack other teams’ VMs.
  • Pizza delivered to your Door!
  • Huge respect for “Best VM”. Plus maybe a lame trophy.
    … also small acknowledgement for “Best Attackers”.


  1. Who can attend the event?
    Invitation is open to the regional winning teams of the 2020 CyberSCI competitions in: Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver, plus one team from each of the four schools who registered in Calgary.  (Cancelled by Covid-19.)
  2. Are substitutions allowed on the team?
    If someone from your original team is not joining this event, then substitutions are allowed.  Preferably someone who is returning to your school in September, so we can keep the community going!  Failing that, then anyone from any school: still in school or just graduated this year.  No professionals!
  3. What is the entry fee?
    While there will be no entry fees, each team must develop and contribute a “vulnerable VM” (a cyber target) to the competition’s Cyber Range. The real challenge is to contribute the best VM.

Cyber Range and VMs

  1. How do I design and submit a VM into the competition?
    • Register your team to the competition by sending up to 4 names, emails, and your preferences:
      Which OS:  Ubuntu or Windows?
        – Ports:  What will be exposed to attack on your VM?
    • Demo your proposed VMs starting July 15 with mentors for review and feedback.
    • Implement their feedback by July 22. Demo your working, vulnerable VM for final approval.

Event Platforms*

  1. Is this event happening in-person or online?
    • This event will take place online.
  2. How will I connect to the competition?
    • The competition will utilize a variety of platforms for hosting the Cyber Range, and conferencing into the event – AWS for the Cyber Range, Zoom for video conferencing and Slack (or possibly Discord) for messaging.
