Aviation is under attack! A Tier 1 airport is in chaos!

Ticketing kiosks, airline servers, flight information displays, transportation security, runway lights, aircraft, and other critical systems have all been compromised. And there are indicators that airport insiders may have colluded with hackers to bring the airport to its knees!

It’s up to you now. YOU have 24 hours to research and investigate this crisis to regain control of the targeted airport and its airspace. From collecting evidence (and flags) to restoring all compromised assets and assisting impacted stakeholders, the clock is ticking!

Its time to apply everything you know about cybersecurity (e.g., password cracking, log analysis, computer forensics, and ethical hacking), intelligence (e.g., OSINT), and aviation (e.g., crew, avionics, air traffic control communications, airline operations, security screening, airport information systems, and aviation cyber-physical systems) to help the airport return to normal operations.

You have been given full authority to do whatever it takes to catch the hackers, seize back control of the airport, and restore aviation operations.


Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU), with support from CybatiWorks, presents this year’s Aviation Cyber Security Challenge, A-ISAC CTF, sponsored by the Aviation Information Sharing and Analysis Center (A-ISAC). This challenge asks security researchers and enthusiasts from around the world to focus their skills and creativity on solving cybersecurity challenges of aviation systems.
