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.

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

  • Incident Handlers
  • Forensic Analysts
  • Security auditors
  • Vulnerability assessment personnel

"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
