For the second consecutive year we developed the HackMex CTF for the Instituto
Politécnico Nacional of Mexico. This year’s challenges included digital
forensics, reverse engineering, binary analysis, vulnerability identification, incident investigation and more.
The participants were divided into 2 categories, the Academics and the
.GOB & .ORG. Each of the categories had separate leaderboards and
The participants included university students from all around Mexico as
well as government, military and intelligence services.
An online CTF competition was developed for the Instituto Politécnico Nacional
of Mexico. The tournament was held by The National Polytechnic Institute (IPN).
The scope of HackMex 2019 was to measure the technological capacity of Mexico,
in an academic environment with international projection. The competition
attracted not only students from different universities, but also cyber
security professionals, making it the largest CTF competition in the country.
Due to high demand, the competition was completed in two stages, the
qualification round and finals. The event gained national media attention.
Cyber Sabers Hackathon - MENA ISC 2019
For the third year in a row, we delivered an echoCTF based competition
for the Cyber Sabers Hackathon. The competition took place during the
two days of the MENA ISC 2019 Security Conference held in Riyadh, KSA.
This year we included even more challenges and flags that represented
the latest security trends of 2019. We also added more defensive
challenges to test how the participants act in real life situations.
A demonstration platform, created for one of our clients for the needs of the IDEX 2019,
which perfectly demonstrates the diversity of our platform. This military themed platform
is comprised of echoCTF targets and a diorama specifically tailored to illustrate the effects
of security lapses on modern military facilities. A presenter attacks and takes control of
systems (echoCTF targets) of the military facility which control various infrastructure
elements of the diorama through real-life services. The attacks result in opening the automated
hangar doors, take control of a UAV, bypass authorization checks on gates and more.
Cyber Sabers Hackathon - MENA ISC 2018
For the second year in a row, Echothrust Solutions was tasked to
deliver an echoCTF based competition for the Cyber Sabers Hackathon. The competition took
place during the two days of the MENA ISC 2018 and included 36 teams and 153 participants.
This year, we included even more custom made models of signature buildings of Riyadh, Jeddah,
Kuwait and Dubai. Besides the usual offensive challenges, programming and defensive challenges
were also developed. The top scoring teams were awarded with prizes of 50,000 to 20,000 SAR and
every participant was awarded with a certificate of participation.
ENISA "Hack the Airport" at Cyber Europe 2018
European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA EU Agency) "Hack the Airport"
concept includes airport infrastructure CTF scenarios which are visualized through a scaled
model of an airport. ENISA Hack the airport is utilized as part of the 5th pan European cyber
crisis exercise, Cyber Europe 2018 (CE2018). The scenarios include obtaining control of a jet
bridge, the radar, a moving walkway, the departures board and more.
MENA ISC 2017
As part of the MENA ISC 2017, a Hackathon competition took place and students of
more than 10 Universities across KSA (Saudi Arabia) participated. This
time, amongst other elements usually included on echoCiTy-F,
custom made models of signature buildings of the city of Riyadh were constructed.
Along with other challenges on information systems and infrastructure elements, aspects
of the custom made buildings could also be controlled like the elevator and lights
of the Kingdom Tower and lights of the Burj Rafal tower. The top four point scoring
teams were awarded with prizes of 50,000 to 20,000 SAR and certificates of participation.
DU HACKATHON 2016
Echothrust Solutions created from scratch, a smart
city model, the echoCiTy-F, which represents vital
infrastructure components of a smart city - including ICS and SCADA
systems for transportation, energy, communications and
construction. The gameplay was visible to the players and public
through computer generated visualisations. Amongst other challenges,
hackers tried to obtain control of a model train, its rail tracks and
the train passage bars, the lights and ventilation of a train tunnel,
the airport's communication tower, a power plant and a nuclear plant,
wind turbines and more. echoCTF's gameplay was designed
to assess students knowledge and skills and educate them on cyber security
and ethical hacking. The team with the highest points at the end won
the competition, taking home the prize of AED 20,000 and certificates
