Hacky Holidays

8 JUL 26 JUL Deloitte

MISSION BRIEFING

You’ve been officially chosen to compete in UNLOCK THE CITY from July 8. till July 26.

Help! The smart city is in trouble. An A.I. algorithm went rogue in the once so peaceful, intelligent city. It's chaos out there. To regain control and restore peace, we need a group of talented hackers. Each hacker or hacking team will unlock the city in phases by solving a set of challenges in four city districts. The city council has announced that the event's winner will be appointed "Mayor" of the City to sweeten the deal. Additionally, the best hacker in a particular district will become the "Sheriff" for that district. Can we count on you to unlock the city?


WHAT IS HACKY HOLIDAYS?


Capture the Flag

Hacky Holidays is an online CTF competition where you can test and improve your skills with all sorts of challenges (technical puzzles) related to cyber security and emerging technologies.


Who can join?

We invite everyone to join with a team limit of up to 4 players. Of course we have no way to verify the team-limit, but we count on everyone to keep the Hacky Holidays spirit intact.

🏆 We invite everyone who solved a challenge to write a creative and detailed writeup on how you solved the challenge.

Best 3 video-writeups
🏆 We invite everyone who solved a challenge to (screen-)record a creative and detailed video-writeup on how you solved the challenge. You must publish the writeup after the game has ended in order not to spoil the solution to anyone else in the competition (starting July 27th). The write-up must be published on a publicly available platform. Out of those writeups we will select the best 3 write-ups that will be rewarded with a 50 USD voucher which you can spend at the M5STACK webshop for your IoT hobby projects! If you submit your video you also make a chance that your video write-up will be used in the aftermovie! You can participate by submitting (a link to) your video-writeup to hackazon@deloitte.nl until August 1st, 2022.

Note: Deloitte employees can play in the event but are excluded from winning a prize. The top X players refers to the entries on the scoreboard and is based on the total score of the team and the time of flag submissions. Participants can win a maximum of 2 vouchers by participating in Hacky Holidays.
