SOHOplessly Broken Contest!

Despite being widely distributed and deployed in nearly every modern home and small office, SOHO networking equipment has received surprisingly little attention from security researchers. Yet, these devices facilitate the connectivity and protection (we hope) of millions of end-systems. The critical vulnerabilities that persist in these widely used devices demonstrate an urgent need for deeper scrutiny.

SOHOplessly is a no-holds-barred router hacking competition. There will be three (3) tracks that focus on exploiting vulnerabilities.
Track 0 is a pre-con contest. Track 1 is a capture the flag style contest. Track 2 is a surprise contest that will take place at random times throughout the conference.

Please see the contest page for more information!
