Event organizers 

You and your team have been promoted. You are now responsible to improve the security of your new company location.
To your disappointment, your predecessors had some very specific visions of IT security. For example, they believe that firewalls are only there to break important applications. This is just as bad for revenue as is touching any running system. For this reason, the corporate policy disallows any changes on the central servers – they are already working as they are supposed to.
To maximize the productivity of the staff, all locations are – of course! – connected to each other.
Evil tongues say that hackers have already infiltrated all other locations and cannot wait to learn all corporate secrets and access customer data.

The CInsects CTF consists of multiple services involving multiple virtual machines. The teams` virtual machines are hosted by us. They may have different operating systems – let yourself be surprised.

The level of access to the different virtual machines is different for each service and virtual machine.

Each team can start, stop, and reset their own virtual machines.

The idea of giving limited access to vulnboxes or even no access at all is interesting in my opinion, makes you think about "patching" services without fixing sources.

Or may not, no lies technically :)
