Do you like physical intrusion, social engineering, tracking or OSINT?
Get ready for the #SpyingChallenge at #LeHack
What is the Spying Challenge?
For this third edition during the “leHACK” and in a context of omnipresent economic intelligence, you will have the mission to collect information on a set of targets with the aim of satisfying your customers.
This mission will involve open source research, vishing, tracking, social engineering, physical intrusions, lockpicking, etc.
How does it work?
A first qualifying event before “leHACK” will allow to decide between the best teams who will be able to continue the experience. It is in a second time, on July 6, that you will be in the real action!
Which profile to participate in the Spying Challenge?
Recommended skills: knowledge of OSINT, picking, software radio, tracking, hacking…
Each team will be composed of a maximum of 4 people.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SPYING CHALLENGE?
For any person, man or woman, in teams of 3 or 4.
For those who want to have a good time,
For those who want to win, of course.
Each team will receive a file containing the necessary information for the Spying Challenge. It will take place in two phases, one before and one during “leHACK” on July 6, 2019. You can participate in the first phase even if you do not go to leHACK, but you will not be able to participate in the second phase in that case.
THE SPYING CHALLENGE PROCESS?
The first phase focuses on OSINT and hacking aspects. You will need to retrieve some information about your targets from open sources on the global Internet. Search, discover, understand: you must know the lives of your targets better than your wife’s. Other challenges will await you….
During this phase, you will send us your information as you discover it via a method that will be communicated to you later.
The second phase of the Spying Challenge, which will take place on site, will only concern the selected teams. So we are talking about the elite, the best of the best.
In this second phase, you will have to observe and locate, take notes, photograph and perhaps even…steal someone else’s property. You will also need to practice your physical intrusion skills: lockpicking, infiltration, etc.
When interacting with your targets, use your charisma and communication skills. Seduction, threats, torture, the techniques are multiple.
- Something to take notes and photos
- Lockpicking and general hacking kit
- Good mood
We can provide you with the necessary equipment for lockpicking and hacking, but it is best if you bring your own. All other legal in-house tools are welcome!
Life being cruel, only the best team will get a prize. I might as well tell you that you’ll have to do your best!
