ThinkSECURE's AIRRAID WIRELESS HACKING EVENT
SUNTEC CONVENTION CENTRE, SINGAPORE
AUG 26TH 2005 (TOURNAMENT)
AUG 27TH 2005 (OPENHACK)


Official Event Website:   http://airraid.securitystartshere.net


Air Raid: (noun) An attack by military aircraft, especially when 
armed with bombs and rockets; an attack by armed planes on a ground 
or surface target.

Air Raid: (security) Penetration of organizational and personal 
wireless airspace by attackers with malicious intent. *



== EVENT DESCRIPTION ==

Wireless networks using 802.11 and Bluetooth have become common 
deployments in today's corporate environments.

To underscore the importance of securing these newer types of 
networks on top of traditional wired networks, ThinkSECURE Pte Ltd 
(www.securitystartshere.net), whose founders Christopher Low & Julian 
Ho designed and implemented the BlackOPS hacking event at Suntec 
Convention Center last year, has put together AIRRAID, a first-of-its-
kind in Asia, if not the world, wireless hacking tournament**,  to 
provide security professionals and grayhats alike with a real-world 
wireless penetration contest.

Though this 2-phase, protected-systems-penetration game's key focus 
is on wireless (specifically 802.11 & Bluetooth) security, it also 
highlights the risks posed by a security-conscious organization's 
partners who do not implement equivalent security on their part or do 
not synchronize their security policies with each other.

The target infrastructure for this contest is a purpose-built, non-
internet-connected network which has been setup exclusively for this 
event.  Judges will score the teams on the basis of time and 
difficulty. The faster they can conduct a successful penetration 
against this target infrastructure, the more points they score.  Once 
they have breached the perimeter, the degree of difficulty in 
obtaining information from the various locations in the internal 
target network will also provide point variation.

Participants will be required to think-outside-the-box in order to 
successfully accomplish the initial network penetration and 
consequent information theft.  Shortlisted participants will be 
advised to read the ground rules and gameplay CAREFULLY as anything 
not forbidden by either of them will be allowed.

This first-of-a-kind event format in Asia, if not the world, is the 
showcase event for practical wireless security and the push to make 
many organizations understand that practical wireless security is 
more than just access-point-reliant, not to mention highlighting the 
need to protect information on Bluetooth-enabled devices.

 

== DATE & VENUE == 

The event will be held in Singapore and game-day will be on :

      August 26th 2005
      Suntec International Convention & Exhibition Centre
      Hall 306, 3rd Floor
      Republic of Singapore



== PRIZES ==

Prize sponsorship deals are being firmed up at the moment and they 
will be made known on the official AIRRAID event website closer to 
the event. 



== PARTICIPANT ELIGIBILITY ==

This event is open to any team that is willing to make the trip down 
to Singapore this coming August 2005 for the contest.

While there is no fee charged for participating in the event, 
participants will have to pay their own transport, accommodation and 
meal expenses.  There will be no reimbursement for any expenses 
incurred in getting down here.

There are quite a number of hotels around the area, from budget ones 
a mere 15 minutes away along Bencoolen Street like the Strand or 
Bencoolen to the ritzy 5-stars right next to SICEC (Ritz-Carlton and 
Marina Mandarin just to name two of them).



== PARTICIPANT REQUIREMENTS ==

Participants will also have to bring their own laptops and wireless 
client adapters, as well as a CAT5 cable and (optional but 
recommended) a VPN client.

Participants will also be required to sign an indemnity form stating 
that they will be responsible for their own actions during the event 
and a liability waiver absolving the organizers from any damage that 
may occur to participant's own equipment. (you guys are security pros 
so you should already know how to defend your own stuff :) )

There will be an on-site pre-game briefing & rules familiarization 
session the day before the event so if you're not there for the pre-
game brief and you've not signed the indemnity form and the liability-
waiver, you won't be allowed in on game day.
