The workshop will provide a detailed demo and explanation of SDP, and will kick off the ‘virtual hackathon’ contest, which will last until 3pm PST on February 27, challenging participants to hack the SDP protocol, modeled after military-grade networks.
The SDP Hackathon gives participants the IP addresses of the target file server as well as the SDP components protecting them. This in effect will simulate an ‘insider attack’ – one of the most difficult to prevent – on both private cloud and public cloud infrastructure. Participants will also have access to a reference SDP system to learn how the system works to plan their attack.
The first participant to successfully capture the target information on the protected server will receive an expenses paid trip to DEF CON ® 22, held in Las Vegas August 7-10, 2014. Contest rules and registration are available at www.HackSDP.com. Space is limited, interested attendees should go to https://cloudsecurityalliance.org/events/csa-summit-2014/#_rsa to reserve a seat at the workshop.
