HouSecCon 2013 is a community event. We take pride in being part of a non-profit organization that is trying to expand the InfoSec community in Houston, in all of Texas, the USA, and the World! So that means we need volunteers! The day will be packed with activities, and we are looking for volunteers to help make this event successful.

DigiModo CTF – by atx2600
Goal: Escalate your way through a simulated corporate network of ~10 machines to eventually compromise the digimodo.biz CA signing key and issue yourself a valid teamname.digimodo.biz cert.
Scenario: You are a new employee at the DigiModo Certificate Authority corporation, but you find out your salary is not quite what was agreed upon. To get back at your employer, you’ve decided to hit them where it hurts: steal the certificate authority’s root signing key so you can sign your own certificates as them. Through a number of network, application, and system vulnerabilities you are able to escalate your way through this corporate network to achieve your goal. How quickly can you pwn a CA?
