Ready to challenge your skills? Getting ready for a CTF or a Cyber Challenge?
Train With CyberQ Skill Pack Challenges
CyberQ Skillpacks are designed to test your skills in a variety of different challenges with limited guidance. Each challenge runs independently as its own “Self-Paced Capture the Flag.” Launching a Skill Pack challenge will reserve your very own space in our CyberQ Data Center, we will raise the Attack Console, as well as the down-range vulnerable targets for you to practice and challenge your skills.
Each challenge includes a set of distinct challenge flags, in order to solve the flags you must perform a variety of procedures in the target environment including basic host discovery, service discovery, vulnerability analysis, attack procedures, privilege escalation, and more.
Please note, this is not a learning lab. Skill packs are designed intentionally with challenges, puzzles, and preconfigured targets that will test your ability to identify, analyze, exploit, and own the targets. If you are new to Cyber and have never participated in a cyber challenge or competition, Skill packs may be too advanced. So, feel free to browse our learning products if this describes you, however, if you are ready for a challenge, enjoy solving complex puzzles and testing your limits, CyberQ challenges are a great way to hone your trade craft.
Cryptography Techniques Skill Pack
Skill Pack covers both symmetric and Asymmetric Cryptography Encryption techniques with Cyber Challenges covering Morse code, Vigenere cipher, Base64 Encoding, MD5 Hash, SHA256 Hash, and the Caesar cipher etc.
Each challenge contains a fully designed target network with live virtual machines, servers, web hosts, and vulnerable sites and applications. Launching a challenge will open the CyberQ Console and safely connect you to our live attack environment right through your browser. Depending on the challenge, you will land in your attack machine, either Kali or Parrot, where you will have instant access to the full suite of attack tools required to carry out your challenge. Targets are preconfigured with host and application vulnerabilities which you will uncover as you progress through the challenges. CyberQ is a fully automated Cyber Range platform providing you with a self-driven ‘Capture-the-flag‘ experience in each challenge.
Gain direct hands-on practical experience on Industry’s leading Cyber Range Platform – CyberQ. Successful completion of this Cryptography Skill Pack will gain you Job-ready Cyber skills and execution efficiency against cyber challenges.
About Cryptography Skill Pack
“Cryptography” comes from the Greek words kryptos, meaning “concealed, hidden, veiled, secret, or mysterious,” and graphia, meaning “writing”; thus, cryptography is “the art of secret writing.”
Cryptography is the practice of concealing information by converting plaintext (readable format) into ciphertext (unreadable format) using a key or encryption scheme. It is the process of converting data into a scrambled code that is encrypted and sent across a private or public network. Cryptography protects confidential data such as email messages, chat sessions, web transactions, personal data, corporate data, e-commerce applications, and many other types of communication. Encrypted messages can, at times, be decrypted by cryptanalysis (code breaking), even though modern encryption techniques are virtually unbreakable.
