What is Infosec Battlebots?
At Infosec BattleBots, we're passionate about bringing together the exciting worlds of hardware-based fun and cybersecurity. Our project started near the end of last year, and since then, we have been dedicated to creating an exhilarating experience for participants at cybersecurity conferences.Our primary focus is our Antweight BattleBot arena, where enthusiasts can engage in thrilling battles with their custom-built robots.
It's an excellent opportunity to test your skills, strategies, and innovations in a physical setting. We bring our battle arena to various cybersecurity conferences, providing attendees with an opportunity to enjoy some hardware-based excitement.To further align our activities with the realm of cybersecurity, we're currently working on expanding our battle classes.
These new weight classes, namely the AI Class and Hacker Class, aim to push the boundaries of competition and innovation.In the AI Class, battles will be fully automated, with robots relying entirely on artificial intelligence for their strategies and actions.
This category showcases the latest advancements in autonomous systems and allows participants to witness AI-powered combat firsthand.The Hacker Class, on the other hand, introduces an intriguing twist to the traditional battles. Competitors will have the opportunity to hack into their opponent's bot and make subtle modifications, all while ensuring the opponent's bot remains functional. Before the match, opponents will have a designated period to identify any modifications, encouraging a strategic and tactical approach.To facilitate the hacking aspect, each bot will be equipped with a web interface featuring a kill switch. This kill switch provides the capability to power down the bot for a specified period or invert its controls.
Teams must strive to protect their own web interface while simultaneously attempting to hack into their opponent's interface.We believe that combining hardware-based fun with cybersecurity challenges offers a unique and engaging experience for participants. Whether you're a seasoned cybersecurity professional, an AI enthusiast, or simply someone interested in the convergence of technology and competition, Infosec BattleBots is the place to be.Join us as we push the boundaries of cyber defense and robotic combat. Stay tuned for updates on our upcoming events and be part of the excitement at Infosec BattleBots!
