Capture The Flag

What’s a security conference without a grueling CTF?
But hang on, every time you attend an event in Indian you have a different CTF with no link to last partial efforts you put.
Well dear Sir, as you rightly guessed ….., tickle your very hacking bone Clubhack and null presents the Battle Underground Diwitiya (Version 2.0 continue)
Starting from ClubHack2010 this year, we’ll be having this CTF going from conferneces to conferences (ClubHack, NULLCon, c0c0n). An year long CTF?? Yes! year long. Keep playing the same CTF in each conference & start from where you left in last one.
The event promises to be filled with fun and exciting hacking challenges.
Requirements
1. You can form teams(2 members) or play as an individual.
2. You have to bring your own laptop (bring your own inbuilt / addon wifi card to have some extra fun).
3. Live CD of popular security distro would help your cause but not all the time (Backtrack, Matriux).
4. You will get internet connectivity but to be on a safer side keep usb internet dongles handy.
Format:
It will be multi level hacking challenge. In each level you will find clues to the next level. The first team to finish the final level wins.
Prizes:
So if its an year long event, the prizes should also be in same way, right?
Moderation team will decide the percentage covered in each event & you’ll get same percentage discount in next event.
Say you cover up 30% in ClubHack, then you’ll get 30% discount on nullcon tickets & can continue to play from 30% in nullcon. If you reach 80% in nullcon, your c0c0n ticket will be discounted at 80%.
We know everyone would love t reach 100%, correct :)
And there would be some surprise prizes too.

solid state disks

February 2, 2010 Leave a comment

Solid state drives (SSDs), as compared to their spinning counterparts, have no moving parts, require less power, have a smaller footprint, produce a fraction of the heat, enjoy a longer life span and perform better in some systems. They currently range in price from two or three times for smaller drives (about 30GB) to more than 10 times that for drives in the 120GB to 250GB rangeSATA vs. SSD (Watts)

The table shows the average power consumption from a variety of different SATA and SCSI drives. The SSDs are Intel High Performance SSDs.

Performance
                       If you’ve heard of SSDs, you’ve also heard about their increased performance over conventional disk technology. Since SSDs don’t have moving parts, their seek times return numbers in the range of 75 microseconds to 1 millisecond. Standard disk technology runs in the 4 to 5 millisecond range.

SSD PRO’s &CON’s::
PRO’s:::
             Energy efficient
             Low Latency
             Durability    
             Control of Unstructured files
             Compatability with operating systems
             commoditized components
CON’s::::
         LifeExpectancy ofSSD
         Not Ideal for all
         More Expensive..
