What is NetWars Experience?

Core NetWars is a computer and network security challenge designed to test a participant's experience and skills in a safe environment while having a little fun with your fellow IT security professionals.

Topics Include:

The SANS NetWars Experience:

  • Consists of an interactive, Internet-based environment for computer attacks and analyzing defenses
  • Is designed to be accessible to a broad level of player skill ranges

NetWars Levels
Level 1 - Played on local Linux image without root
Level 2 - Played on local Linux image with root
Level 3 - Attack a DMZ
Level 4 - Pivot to intranet
Level 5 - Master of your domain... castle versus castle

  • Ethical Hackers

  • Incident Handlers
  • Forensic Analysts
  • Security auditors
  • Vulnerability assessment personnel
  • Security Operations Center (SOC) staff members
"The best programs don't think of cyber as an event. The best programs weave together training and career paths. The hunger for these people who are well-trained is so great that they'll constantly be in high demand."- Alan Paller, director of research at the SANS Institute
