Because of the proprietary nature of the CyberPatriot Competition System (CCS), the CyberPatriot Program Office is unable to release any practice images outside of the scored rounds of competition or the Exhibition Rounds during the summer. However, teams may take advantage of two other practice image options that do not use our scoring system. These options have been provided to the program by Texas A&M University Corpus Christi on a National Science Foundation grant. These images are to be used only for CyberPatriot training and may not be used in a for-profit manner.
Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows server 2008
*****New Version for CyberPatriot VIII*****
CyberPatriot now offers a self-scoring system for Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2008 images. To use this client, follow these steps:
- Download a Windows 7 or 8.1 Professional or Windows Server 2008 Standard (not R2) image using the MSDN account you receive when registering for the program. For help with using MSDN, see this presentation.
- Download the
Scoring Engine Tool v3.0.1 for the image.
- Implement vulnerabilities in the image and configure the scoring client found in the SEHelp.chm file in the SEHelpv3 folder in the zipped
Scoring Engine Tools v3.0.1 folder.
Previous versions of the scoring client only registeres a vulnerability as fixed if a Competitor matches exactly what the Coach has configured in the system. However, version 3 of the scoring engine now allows a range of values to be scored as correct for some variables. See the SEHelpv3.chm file for more details.
Please note that while the engine may be called the CyberPatriot Scoring Engine, this is not the official scoring engine used in the competition. The official scoring software is called the CyberPatriot Competition System (CCS).
To practice with an Ubuntu 14.04 image, please download the Desktop (not Server) version that is compatible with your host machine:
