We are excited to announce that the Capture The Flag Village will be at the Diana Initiative again this year!

Welcome to the Capture the Flag  (CTF) Village of The Diana Initiative (TDI) 2021! We have lots to offer players of all backgrounds and levels! The village will feature not one, not two, but three cyber competitions, as well as workshops and talks! And there will be lots of prizes to be won, donated by our wonderful sponsors!

We will have the core CTF built by the TDI CTF committee dream team listed below, as well as the Secure Code Warrior competition and the Idaho National Labs/CISA CTF! You can play them all!

We will also be chilling out and chatting with our emcee and DJ Aaron. You can find our schedule [Here].

The CTFs will kick off after the keynote on day one, at 10:00AM PDT and will close on day two at 4:30PM PDT. 


Brought to you by a team of volunteers and the Women’s Society of Cyberjutsu, this CTF features a wide range of challenges from trivia to forensics to reverse engineering and more! We will be using the TryHackMe platform for this event and we thank them for sponsoring us a second year in a row!


Secure Code Warrior CTF

Secure Code Warrior brings you a defensive security-based tournament from a developer’s perspective. The tournament allows you to test your skill against the other participants in a series of vulnerable code challenges that ask you to identify a problem, locate insecure code, and fix a vulnerability. You don’t need extensive programming knowledge as this will be a great way to learn the foundations and intermediates of leveraging code that is not only functional but is also secure. We thank Secure Code Warrior for being a silver sponsor for the event!

Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Industrial Control Systems (ICS) CTF

Imagine this scenario: Azalea Power Co. is experiencing the effects of a large-scale cyber attack and is in need of a cyber incident response team to help them investigate. You and your team of cyber incident responders have been brought in to help the internal IT team as they identify the extent of the impacts to their IT network, corporate building management system (BMS), and power distribution system. In this challenge, participants will explore network and host artifacts from Azalia Power’s IT, BMS and electric distribution networks. Throughout the exercise, participants will be exposed to real world techniques and leverage multiple open source tools to dig into the artifacts and discover indicators of compromise (IOCs) and techniques that the attackers used to get into the environment.

The CISA ICS CTF is brought to you by both Idaho National Labs and CISA.

OWASP DevSlop Workshop

Kubernetes Primer with OWASP DevSlop is a hands-on, interactive workshop and mini-CTF that was designed to give you a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of Kubernetes. Through a mix of lectures and mini-challenges, you’ll learn how Kubernetes works.  We will hack and break our clusters and then learn how to fix the underlying security issues. This 1-day workshop includes overviews of:
  • Docker/Containers
  • Container Orchestration
  • Kubernetes Architecture
  • Kubernetes Objects & Organization
  • Kubernetes AuthN / AuthZ overview
  • Kubernetes Security Principles
  • K8 Security – OPA
