The Oklahoma Cup competition spans three months and is comprised of three rounds. Each round of the tournament includes virtual machine images of various operating systems such as Windows Desktop, Windows Server, Linux Desktop, and Cisco Packet tracers. Teams consisting of two to six members have a two-day window to compete in each round, with a three-hour time limit to advance.
The focus of the competition is on identifying and correcting vulnerabilities, securing settings, eliminating malware, and answering forensic questions.
