SnitchHunt is a game designed by secruity consultant, Gabor Szathmari to teach the public about how different sets of metadata can be brought together to identify & track the movements of individuals.
The original version of SnitchHunt was taken offline due to costs of hosting because it relied on Kibana to allow users to search against the datasets.
It was for this reason that I decided to create a different version of the game that did not use Kibana so that it could be kept online indefinitely.
I also decided to add a simpler, quicker 'game' based on the SnitchHunt data that can be run in evening time-slots.
Either version can be done online at your leisure, just follow the introductory slides through to get the gist.
The easy version does not require log in and is not scored. The difficult version requires sign up to keep track of scoring so is a more competitive type of event.
My version of SnitchHunt is currently open sourced at GitHub.
