Pcaps from National CyberWatch Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition

The U.S. National CyberWatch Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (MACCDC) is a unique experience for college and university students to test their cybersecurity knowledge and skills in a competitive environment. The MACCDC takes great pride in being one of the premier events of this type in the United States.

While similar to other cyber defense competitions in many aspects, the MA CCDC, as part of the National CCDC, is unique in that it focuses on the operational aspects of managing and protecting an existing network infrastructure. The teams are physically co-located in the same building. Each team is given physically identical computer configurations at the start of the competition. Throughout the competition, the teams have to ensure the systems supply the specified services while under attack from a volunteer Red Team. In addition, the teams have to satisfy periodic "injects" that simulate business activities IT staff must deal with in the real world. ; info(at)
