Cyber Storm is an annual day-long cyber security competition held at Louisiana Tech University that serves as the final exam for a Computer Science and Cyber Engineering course and pits several teams of students in a fierce battle in cyberspace to test their skills in network defense and attack strategies.
Cyber Storm 2015's theme was "superheroes." There were five teams: Blue Beetle, Cyborg, Forge, Red Tornado, and Vision. The administrative team was Dr. Manhattan. Other "black-ops" and challenge teams were: The Dark Knight and Ultron. In past years, we have had various themes: Chuck Norris vs. Bruce Lee (2010), Sith vs. Jedi (2011), Anonymous vs. LulzSec (2012), Greek gods (2013), and the Houses of Hogwarts (2014).
As in previous years, we implemented custom infrastructure that supported the 2015 Cyber Storm. In addition to hardware and network infrastructure, we further designed and implemented a number of critical components that provided challenges and overall situational awareness during the competition. Some of what were featured during the competition includes:
Cyber Storm 2016 has been scheduled for May 5, 2016. More information will be upadated soon.
