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. Several teams will compete this year, and spectators can participate.
This year's theme is "superheroes." There are five teams: Blue Beetle, Cyborg, Forge, Red Tornado, and Vision. The administrative team is Dr. Manhattan. Other "black-ops" and challenge teams are: The Dark Knight and Ultron. In years past, 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 are implementing custom infrastructure that will support the 2015 Cyber Storm. In addition to hardware and network infrastructure, we are further designing and implementing a number of critical components that will provide challenges and overall situational awareness during the competition. Some of what will be featured during the competition includes:
