VPN , VMs and Cloud Hosting 17.03.2020 14:13

Dear saarCTF participants,

with less than 4 days to go, we release VPN configurations and images on our website. Teams can now setup router VM and testbox VM. Please contact us per mail or IRC if things break.

Check vpn.ctf.saarland to see if your setup is functional.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, many teams (including us) can't meet together and play at one location. To help affected teams participating, we added the option to host all your team infrastructure (router, vulnbox, game VPN and a private VPN for your team) on a cloud server. We provide scripts and instructions to host a router VM for your team (including team-internal VPN) and migrate the vulnbox to a cloud server. We hope this lowers the barrier so that all of you can participate. For details check out the cloud setup instructions. If anything is unclear contact us per mail or IRC.
