The CCDC is unique in that it
focuses on the operational aspect of managing and protecting an existing
network infrastructure.  While other
exercises examine the abilities of a group of students to design, configure,
and protect a network over the course of an entire semester, this competition
is focused on the more operational task of assuming administrative and
protective duties for an existing “commercial” network.  Teams will be scored based on their ability
to detect and respond to outside threats, maintain availability of existing
services such as mail servers and web servers, respond to business requests
such as the addition or removal of additional services, and balance security
against business needs.
