CDC Rules

The rules and other administrative documents for the Cyber Defense Competitions run at ISU.


In case of conflicts between the rules and the Scenario document, the Scenario document takes precedence.

These documents are versioned. At the start of the setup phase, White Team will announce which version of the rules will be used during the competition. The currently in effect version of the rules can always be found here.

The key words “MUST”, “MUST NOT”, “REQUIRED”, “SHALL”, “SHALL NOT”, “SHOULD”, “SHOULD NOT”, “RECOMMENDED”, “MAY”, and “OPTIONAL” in the rules documents are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119.
