This security training event is aimed at experienced Linux administrators. Similar training events have been held at a number of recent meetings and have been very popular.

The participants will learn basic incident response and forensic skills in a virtualized environment. After a couple of introductory lectures on field forensics and incident response, most of the time will be taken up by a tournament where the participants form teams that are given full root access to simulated HPC sites. Their task is to defend against and analyze realistic attacks of increasing sophistication, while keeping their systems up and running. The teams will be scored on their performance! At the end of the event we will discuss the findings. The crucial point here is to find how the site was attacked and which steps could be taken to prevent this from happening again. This should result in some best practices on how to reduce the attack surface of your site.

The maximum number of participants will be 18, on a first come, first served basis
