UPDATE: The games have begun! Capture the Flag is now open to everyone. Customer Connection program or Meraki community membership are no longer required. Dates extended through July 17th! Register using the links below. Good luck!

 

As a part of Cisco Live US auxiliary programs, we invite you to learn new technologies and obtain hands-on experience in a gamified way by joining us with Capture the Flag (CTF)

 

Get ready to roll up your sleeves for interesting one-of-a-kind challenges in the form of missions, based on use-cases, technologies and solutions around different architectures. Top performers will be tracked and recognized on the platform’s leaderboard, which gives you bragging rights that you can share on your social networks! 

 

There will be 3 independent, parallel CTF games running from July 06 - to July 17, 2020. 

  • - Enterprise Networking (EN) CTF
  • - Meraki CTF
  • - Data Center (DC) CTF

 

What can the participants expect: 

 

EN CTF - contains missions around designing, operating and troubleshooting with Cisco DNA Assurance & Automation, SD-Access, SD-WAN, DNA Spaces, ISE, Programmability, etc.

 

Meraki CTF -  contains missions around using Cisco Meraki Dashboard, implementing & interpreting - Wifi6, Security & Routing, SD-WAN configurations, leveraging API resources, etc.

 

DC CTF - contains missions around designing, operating and troubleshooting multi-cloud networking environments using DC Technologies - start with ACI Anywhere to understand how to create an automated network with consistent policies on-premises or even in the cloud. Then, learn how to evolve Day 2 Operations from reactive to proactive using Cisco Network Assurance and Insights Suite.

Remember to save the dates July 06 - to July 17* on your calendar! You can spend from some minutes to several hours playing CTF; we have enough content to keep you engrossed. Furthermore, you have the flexibility to spend as much time as you would like. Leave anytime, then come back later to continue from where you left.

 

Are you ready for it?

Re: Capture the Flag!

I really enjoyed that CTF, wasted 2 hints which were unnecessary.

But i really had fun, first time playing around with APIs, slept at 2am but i managed to finish, the Proctors were a great help to.

 

we need level 3 and onward

Great bit of fun.  Disappointed with 19th but I wasted two hints.  Also disagreed with the answer for question 2 on the first mission which is poorly worded.  There are more than 2 VLAN's configured for the San Francisco network (2 on the MX and about 5 on the Switches).  Maybe thats just me being picky 🙂

Re: Capture the Flag!

Yeah, that was definitely fun to play. Only had problems with one wording and a wrong network in the task (which is corrected by now).

 

But: Are there more missions to come? I'm looking every five minutes but no more missions show up ... 😞

Re: Capture the Flag!

I went through the switches as well, had them all written out, ready to put them all as well.

Yep - I had a right old whinge at the Game Proctors.  It was late and I was grumpy for having wasted a few minutes doing the right thing 🙂

Some fields may be highlighted in red border if the do not conform to expected pattern requirements - for example password must be 8+ chars. You can even try another browser. Let us know how it goes.
