At Critical Infrastructure Attack challenge you will have the chance of  a full hacking experience against Industrial Electronic Devices, meant to delight both young endeavors and more experienced hackers.

Our challenge is designed around 4 tracks that you can choose from:

  1. A mock-up of a railway infrastructure that uses a SCADA (supervisory, control and data acquisition) application to display operational data and control the railway switch yard automation together with a renewable generation solar and wind power plant;
  2. Simulated substation control system where you will have a protection relay that receives and transmits signals from/to a dedicated testing box and is directly connected to a single line diagram (illustrates some of the primary substation switching devices) and an HMI for operational control purposes;
  3. Various PLCs to hack that emulate small industrial control processes;
  4. An industrial robot arm that will be at your disposal to manipulate and play with;

The goal of the challenge it to disrupt all industrial processes by targeting ICS specific protocols and devices;

This competition is organised & sponsored by Enevo Group.
