Since February 2023, on the island of Riverchelles in thearchipelagoarchipelago of the Maldives, the mines of lithiumlithium are operated by the State of Cryptanga. The operating permit is expiring and the State of Anuméric enters into competition with that of Cryptanga for the new call for tenders. This new market, essential for the River Chellois economy, arrives at the same time as the new local presidential elections. The tension is at its height and the two imaginary states are silently waging struggles for influence and a real cyberwar to win the market. And to inflame these tensions, the inhabitants of Riverchelles, who are mainly against the transfer of lithium resources, hired the hacker group APT54 to lead cyber offensives against their competitor.

Anything goes in cyber
This fictional scenario takes place from February 5 to 9, 2024, as part of the largest university cyberwar exercise Cyber Is Human on the Nancy military base. Organized by the Cyber Defense Command (ComCyber) which provides 200 virtual and real equipment, it plunges around a hundred Nancy students into this virtual conflict. It is also an opportunity for ComCyber cyber fighters and reservists to sharpen their blades in coordination with these students. For partner companies, the exercise allows them to check whether their security systems hold up against cyber weapons.
Anything goes on the cyber battlefield. Hacking Bluetooth devices, such as a simple keyboard, underground maneuvers in the dark web, hacking drones, servers, telephones, video surveillance cameras… The fight takes place in real time for 48 hours non-stop. Enough to strengthen and detect future talents who could join the ranks of ComCyber or ensure the cybersecurity of companies.
