Herndon, Virginia – Zerion Software, Inc., the creator of the iFormBuilder mobile platform, participated in the 2013 National CyberWatch Center Mid-Atlantic Regional Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (CCDC). Held at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Maryland on April 10-13, collegiate cyber-defenders worked to protect a mock national democratic election against expert computer hackers.
“The CCDC really shows these students what it’s like to protect a network from a coordinated, malicious cyberattack,” said Casey O’Brien, director of the National CyberWatch Center at Prince George’s Community College (MD). “It’s a phenomenal educational experience that’s also teaching them what it’s like out there in the cybersecurity world.”
Zerion Software provided eight iPads, running iForm Kiosk, allowing participants to vote in the mock election. Using Socket Mobile CHS barcode scanners, participants scanned their Voter ID Card and voted on the factitious country’s president, flag, animal, and local congressional representative. Using the iFormBuilder mobile platform with the iForm Kiosk App, participants scanned their voter card information with the Socket scanner to easily populate voter information and then proceeded to vote. The data was passed securely to the Cloud to allow for real-time results.
“Socket Mobile is proud to have our CHS barcode scanner featured with iFormBuilder’s electronic voting iPad app at the Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition,” said Mike Gifford, executive vice president of Socket Mobile. “iFormBuilder is Socket Mobile’s leading software partner offering Apple MFi approved solutions on the Apple App Store customized for our barcode scanners, and the electronic voting system is another great example of the broad range of web applications made possible by iFormBuilder’s easy-to-use platform.”
By integrating with Klipfolio, real time election results were displayed on large monitors minutes after the votes were captured.
“People have an insatiable appetite for data – they want more data, they want data to be easy to access, and they want that data now,” says Allan Wille, President of Klipfolio. “The integration between iFormBuilder and Klipfolio addresses this challenge. On one hand, iFormBuilder makes it easy to collect and share data using mobile devices; on the other hand, Klipfolio takes that data and presents it on beautiful real-time dashboards.”
Eight teams of college students competed for the mid-Atlantic regional title during competition: Anne Arundel Community College (MD), Capitol College (MD), Craven Community College (NC), Millersville University (PA), North Carolina State University, Radford University (VA), University of Maryland at College Park, and University of Maryland University College. The winning team, Millersville University, moved on to the National CCDC in San Antonio.
