Are you up for a new challenge? 

Today, we’re announcing "The EKS Cluster Games" — a cloud security Capture The Flag (CTF) event. The mission? To identify and learn about common Amazon EKS security issues.  

The challenge consists of five different scenarios, each one focusing on a possible Amazon EKS issue — and we’ve already directly observed some of them in various research engagements. Participants will play as the attacker, learn about these misconfigurations and security issues, and then exploit them in a controlled environment. 

The challenge is designed for individual participation, but we encourage collaboration! You can form a team and discuss strategies with your colleagues or friends. Just remember: the challenge's completion will be individually tracked.

If you can't attend, don't worry — the challenge is accessible online from anywhere, and you can still claim your certificate.

The Amazon EKS Challenge represents a unique opportunity for individuals to deepen their understanding of Kubernetes implementations on AWS. It's a stimulating, hands-on experience that reflects real-world scenarios, designed to both educate and challenge. We look forward to seeing the impressive problem-solving skills and technical knowledge of all participants. 

This challenge is more than a game; it's a chance to enhance your cloud security skills and engage in a meaningful adventure with a community of like-minded individuals. So: are you ready to face The Amazon EKS Challenge?
