I choose to make this comparison between cars and servers because I find it amazing the way car enthusiasts can take a rusty old car and bring it to life. In our CTF365 world this should be happened too: Take a server and make it awesome by running cool open source applications and paint it (graphic design) like real ones.
In CTF365, team is the most important asset. As a team leader you must find the right balance when invite mates to join your team. Get your Reds ( the security professionals) your Blues ( your defence line) the Mechanics ( system administrators — they’ll get best engine and make it run) the Electrician ( web developer — will make your server run all the apps) the Tinman ( web designer – they will shape your server) and your Paintman (graphic designer).
While Blues will defend your Server/Fortress, you have to build one that is catchy and for that you need your web developers and web designers. They’ll make it happened while they learn more stuff about defensive and offensive security.
You have plenty of choices and opportunities. You can build a Google like “empire” if you want and defend. Or become CTF365’s Facebook by installing JoinDiaspora.com a social network platform.
Have no idea how to pimp your server? Here are some to inspire you
Moreover, tell us what real life web big company you want to run it on CTF365 and we’ll provide a funny name and logo for it and a domain.ctf or .365.
Stay secure while having fun.
