Cyber Defense Competitions are a chance to learn and teach about practical Information Assurance in a fast-paced and real-world environment. Teams of competitors are given a limited amount of time to build and secure a network that provides required services. These networks are then attacked by a team of experienced intrusion specialists whose only goal is to compromise these networks, and even bring them down. Teams are scored based upon the security of their networks, quality of their documentation, usability of their systems (as scored by competition guests on the Green Team), and their participation in other fun events during the course of the competition.
