Cryptography

The focus of this challenge is calling for and recognizing innovative ideas on cryptographic algorithms development, enhancements on already existing algorithms, mathematical models, PKI technologies and others that can be demonstrated by either POC, prototype, demonstrative implementations or other means that can prove the legitimacy of the innovations.


Development

The focus of this challenge is calling for and recognizing innovative ideas on cybersecurity with solutions (applications, platforms), new algorithms, enhancements on already existing algorithms and others that can be demonstrated by either POC, prototype, fully developed solution or other means that can prove the legitimacy of the innovations.


Cyber Security Governance

This focus area covers innovative ideas and solutions which can solve real problems related to the development and implementation of governing cyber security frameworks such as policies, regulations, standards and other frameworks at national and organizational level. It also includes innovate ideas and solutions related cyber security awareness and culture building for organizations and the public.


Communication and Network Security

The focus of this challenge is to invite individuals or groups with innovative ideas to participate in area of channel security, Data security and Network security. In this challenge individuals or groups are expected to come up with convincing (original or modified) algorithm, POC, Prototype or any demonstrable implementation in mentioned areas. Best innovation will be awarded.


Proposed General description

This challenge focuses on finding security vulnerabilities in different given or self-proposed systems and exploiting them to show that the vulnerabilities really exist. It may also include writing exploits.
