Security Series: Security Shepherd CTF


On Wednesday the 14th of March from 19:30 – 22:00, we are going to demo Security Shepherd to the public.

Security Shepherd is a 4th year project created by DIT Student Mark Denihan. The purpose of this application is to educate people about Web Application Security. It involves a series of levels that each user works their way through. Each level has information about the type of attack that a user reads before attempting the attack. Previously DIT students have had a chance to work through the levels, I think it would be a great evening to see how many levels we can get through. I have played it myself and it is a good challenge.

Required for this night is :
Your own laptop, Firefox, Java 6 JRE, BurpSuite (free version).

Attendees of all levels should attend. Mark and myself will be on-hand to give extra tip’s and explanations if required.

 

Please let me know if your coming along so I can keep an eye on numbers:
