2021 Singapore Cyber Conquest


2021 Singapore Cyber Conquest

The 2021 Singapore Cyber Conquest will be played on the SANS NetWars Platform, which is a dynamic cyber range catered to allow participants of all skill levels to compete and hone their cybersecurity skills.

Schedule: 5 October, 9:00AM - 4:30PM (GMT +8)

NetWars features leading-edge challenges and mimics compelling real-life scenarios. This year, teams will be taken on a mission where they will experience challenges ranging from forensics to defensive scenarios to penetration testing with a special focus on mobile and Internet of Things security issues. Participating teams will be fully immersed from the get-go and navigate through various levels where challenges become more complex and interdependent as the storyline progresses.

Tournament Levels

  • Level 1: This level is catered for newcomers to the cybersecurity industry.

  • Level 2: Participants at this level possess solid capabilities, and represent the largest player community in NetWars, as they work to build their skills even further to differentiate themselves from the pack.

  • Level 3: Participants at this level have achieved something quite significant as they have exceeded the capability of the average infosec person.

  • Level 4: Participants at this level have demonstrated awesome skills in solving even the trickiest cybersecurity challenges.

  • Level 5: When you reach this level, we figure that you're so good, there's nothing we can throw at you to challenge you, except others like you. In Level 5, master infosec gurus battle against each other in a castle-vs-castle face-off.


Challenges revolve around the following topics and more:

  • Bash and PowerShell skills

  • Windows and Linux memory forensics

  • Web application challenges

  • A "smart home" mobile application

  • Insecure connected cameras

  • Layer 2/DHCP attacks
