    The exam page has been updated with a link to the encrypted exam files. You may download this file in preparation for tomorrow. The password to the file will be released at the beginning of the exam. Please ensure you understand how to decrypt the exam files using the practice binaries.

    The website has also been updated with details about the VM which will be available for you to use during the exam. Just a reminder that you may choose to use your own laptop for the exam or the provided VM, or both.

    If you have downloaded the exam files within the last few hours, there has been an update to the instructions file inside the tarball and this has been mirrored on the exam website. We suggest you download the exam file again if you have already done so before this announcement.

    Also, just a reminder that the exam has a strict no communication rule. Please close all communication applications on your device and do not have them open for the duration of the exam. If we see any communication on your screen, you may receive 0 for the exam.
