Mankato Cadets Participate in CyberPatriot V PDF Print E-mail

Five Cadets have been practicing and are ready for the first round of competition.  On the practice systems, they found 80% of the errors on one and 90% on the other.

Competion consists of two rounds about a month apart.  The top teams go on to round 3.  The finals take place in Washington DC

CyberPatriot is the premier national high school cyber defense competition that is designed to give hands on exposure to the foundations of cyber security. CyberPatriot is not a hacking competition. CyberPatriot's goal is to excite students about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education.

The Competition

In each competition round, students are provided one to three virtual machines. These machines contain several vulnerabilities, and students must clean the image of them. The virtual machines can have Windows or GNU/Linux Operating systems. They are given a set amount of time on the competition day to do so. Teams that find the most vulnerabilities pass on to the next round, and the winners of all three rounds compete in the National Championships in Washington, D.C.
