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:

  • Vulnerability Assessment
  • Packet Analysis
  • Penetration Testing
  • System Hardening

  • Digital Forensics and Incident Response



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
  • Is split into separate levels so players may quickly advance through earlier levels to the level of their expertise.

The entire challenge involves five levels:

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

Who Should Attend:

  • Security Professionals
  • System Administrators
  • Network Administrators
  • Ethical Hackers
  • Penetration Testers
  • 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
