Results of Digital Challenge OTS 2011

According to the success of the first Digital challenge from two months ago, we decided to continue and also enrich the conference OTS 2011. This time we also prepared interesting tasks from the field of computer science, informatics, cryptography, computer security and common knowledge that 47 participants were solving. There were testing their creativity on the pre-contest and also during the 2 day long conference OTS 2011. All together there were 25 tasks with varying difficulty that allowed to achieve 5900 points and also 120 extra points for better results of some tasks.

We congratulate all the participants that managed to solve any digital challenge with their creativity. Everyone who have not participated may read more about the competition it in one of the previous blog posts.

Results of Digital Challenge DSI 2011

Together with the end of DSI 2011 conference, the Digital challenge DSI 2011 also came to an end. Many people were considering various tasks of the challenge, however only 32 of the bravest actually participated in the event and used their computers in creative ways. Some of those were present at the conference as well, whereas others competed remotely over the Internet. The challenge lasted for 3 days and ran smoothly. However, we quickly noted that the first tasks were too easy, since some participants were getting close to maximum number of points very quickly. This lead us to adding new, more difficult ones and in the end, there were 26 different tasks available to choose from. Solving all 26 tasks would award a participant with maximum of 4500 points. The tasks were divided in 5 categories (general, cryptography and stenography, information gathering, penetration, social engineering). The easiest one was solved by 31 participants while the hardest was solved only by two cryptography ninjas.

We want to congratulate to all the participants which showed their creativity and solved at least some of the tasks. The four highest ranked hackers which passed the magic 3.000 points limit will receive practical awards – products of our partner Gemalto.
