Event description
Bsides Edinburgh 2019 After Party & CTF

About this Event

Xcina Consulting are delighted to announce the official CTF/After Party in conjunction with BSides Edinburgh. BSides Scotland always do such a great job of the day that we simply didn’t want the party to be over at 5pm.

In the spirit of learning and sharing enthusiasm for Cyber Security, we have teamed up with Hack The Box to offer one hundred adventurers the chance to join us for a CTF. This will include a buffet on arrival and a technical challenge that is created especially for the event.

The CTF - What to expect

  • BSides Edinburgh concludes at the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh at 5pm.
  • You would have an hour to make the 20-minute walk over to Revolution bar. Perhaps you can join the tourists trying to sneak a drink in at Greyfriars Bobby across the road?
  • On arrival a buffet meal will be provided which includes a vegan/vegetarian option as shown below.
  • The venue is operating a fully staffed cash bar throughout the event.
  • The CTF challenge will begin no later than 6.45pm so get in early, eat, and find a seat.
  • CTF challenges are being created by Hack the Box, with a final challenge provided by Xcina Consulting from the warped mind of @cornerpirate
  • Teams will be a maximum of 3 and anyone on their own will get paired up.
  • To the victors go the spoils. There will be a prize for the first team to complete the CTF.

The CTF portion of the event will be over by 22:00. Guests are free to stay on at Revolution to carry on an after, after party with doors being flung open to the public.

We will release Xcina Consulting's challenge for the wider community after the event, and publish the most commonly used exploit chain as the official solution a month later.

Getting in

  • The CTF is a ticketed but free event
  • To get the latest news on CTF tickets follow @xcinaconsulting on Twitter

What to bring

  • Your ticket
  • A spirit of adventure.
  • A laptop with a few hours charge ready to go. The venue has a few charging points available, but these are for topping up only and cannot be hoarded.

Don't fancy the CTF?

If you don't want to take part in the CTF and just fancy a drink, you're more than welcome to join us after 7pm at the bar. You won't need a ticket to get in.
