    As always, CrikeyConCTF will be running, with some fresh challenge creators, and the usual jerks who spend hours making challenges to help you learn, problem solve and tear your hair out.
    CrikeyConCTF is a beginner CTF, so if you have never played a CTF before, this is for you. Having a laptop is best way to play, and having some hacking tools that come with Kali Linux would be handy too.
    We'll have our usual HIGHEST QUALITY trophies for the teams that come 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 9th.
    And we'll have prizes courtesy of our wonderful sponsor DotSec, and the always supportive PentesterLab and OZHack. Prizes will be given out randomly throughout the CTF, so anyone and everyone playing can win.
    Some come along, learn some things, win some prizes, have a laugh, or.....perform the Nutbush dance (Coz this happens at other CTF's right?

    Evolution of Espionage Display

    This workshop leverages genuine KGB / Stasi / CIA vintage espionage equipment. Since spycraft gear is often custom-made, secret and then destroyed at end of life, these are rare survivors.
    Laid out in an evolutionary timeline these items illustrate the evolution of spycraft from analog, through the transistorised Cold War, and into the birth of computing and cyber. This includes both 1-off or very limited run custom items, as well as adaptive re-use of commercial products.
    On the hour there will be a 20 minute guided tour of the artefacts, plus plenty of opportunity for Q&A. Some of the items have been restored to a fully operable condition so there is opportunity for hands-on interactivity.
