This challenge does not require you use Harness before you win. But it does require that you configure your app to deploy using Harness after you win, in order to receive your prize. This challenge is for the best best completely new app (code may be inspected by Harness) by a team of at least 3 developers working remotely. While you can have known each other ahead of time, your app must not have been entered into any other contest before. The only Harness requirement for this is that they must deploy your app using Harness (either before or after you are selected) in order to receive this award. Again, you can do the Harness work AFTER you win.

Bridgecrew Challenge #1 - Build a secure cloud native application

1st Place: $200 gift card for a custom keyboard
Questions - Contact:

It's one thing to build a cloud native application fast, but can you also make it secure? Tools like Bridgecrew can help. We provide automated feedback and guardrails to secure cloud native applications from code to cloud.

For this challenge, we’re looking for you to build a secure cloud native application that solves a real world challenge (eCommerce, banking, investment application, etc.). We’re looking to be impressed by the complexity of your application that stays within the bounds of security and compliance requirements. The application you build must be unique (no forking a repo and calling it a day) and secure. Security will be based on minimizing the number of medium to critical severity issues in your infrastructure as code and container images, based on a scan by the Bridgecrew platform.

- Code must be frameworks supported by Bridgecrew
- Applications must have at least one IaC file, one Kubernetes manifest, and one Dockerfile

Entries will be judged on complexity (number and capability of microservices, cloud resources, and connections between them) and how well the application performs its business case. Each service or resource that has a medium or higher severity issue will not be included in the judging.

Happy Hacking!

Bridgecrew Challenge #2 - Secure a badly misconfigured IaC file (10)

10 challengers will receive a $10 giftcard

Questions - contact:

Infrastructure as code security tools provides a scalable, codified way to build new infrastructure. Leveraging open source modules can help you build even faster. However, even if fully deployable, they are not always secure.

DevSecOps builds in security feedback and guardrails throughout the development process. Bridgecrew is one tool that can help you find and fix misconfigurations at scale. For this challenge, take our IaC security training tool - TerraGoat - and secure one provider. Take one provider (AWS, Azure, or GCP) and fix all of the misconfigurations higher than low severity to win!

How it works:
- Fork TerraGoat
- Pick a provider (AWS, Azure, or GCP)
- Scan it with Bridgecrew
- Fix all of the misconfigurations with a severity of Medium or higher
- Send the link over for review

- No removing files or resource blocks

Judging will be performed by checking that all resource blocks are in place and then scanned by Bridgecrew for any Medium or higher misconfigurations

Webhookie AB Challenge - Demonstrate the power of event-driven webhook APIs with a use case of your choice (2)

1st Place: $2000
2nd Place: $1000
Questions - Contact:

Data integration is fundamental to our connected world. Event-driven APIs have the power to automate
processes and connect businesses in a much faster and more agile way than traditional integration methods.

The challenge is to imagine any use case where event-driven webhook APIs can add value and to demonstrate it
with a working solution.

Examples are everywhere - any B2B process, sharing of real time updates to central data repositories, IoT events,
events through AI identification, nearly anywhere you can see event-driven API use cases.

We are looking for an end-to-end solution that is working and runable that demonstrates real-value with the addition of
webhook APIs using webhookie.

Skyflow Challenge - Build an Awesome Privacy Preserving Demo With Skyflow’s Data Privacy Vault (2)

1st Prize: $1,000 Gift Card to
2nd Prize: $500 Git Card to
All participants that submit a working application will receive Skyflow swag.

To participate, register for a Skyflow account here:
We will create a sandbox account for you and add you to a Slack channel for asking questions.

The Challenge: Skyflow is a zero trust data privacy vault delivered as an API. The Skyflow data privacy vault makes it easy to securely and safely store user’s sensitive data like their phone number, name, social security number, and credit card enabling businesses to address issues like data governance, residency, and compliance. Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to create something innovative and awesome that utilizes Skyflow’s APIs.

Background: Every consumer wants to believe that their sensitive data is safe and that they have control over how businesses are using it. However, it’s incredibly difficult for many companies to secure user data, leading to data breaches and loss of consumer trust.

The reason this is a challenge for businesses is that often privacy and security come as afterthoughts once the product is already in use. At that point, user data is being captured, moved, and replicated throughout the company’s systems, moving from the consumer product to databases, into a data warehouse for analytics, and beyond. Engineers in the company have come and gone, so they lose track of where, why, and how user data is being used.

Skyflow advocates for a new way of thinking about data privacy. Similar to how we treat our database login credentials as special and don’t store them in plaintext mixed with our less sensitive server configuration information, we shouldn’t store sensitive user data commingled with other less sensitive application data. It should be stored separately in a vault, isolated and protected, and available through a simple API.

What We Are Looking For: For the challenge, we are looking for you to utilize Skyflow’s product in an innovative way. Here are a few example ideas to get you thinking, but you are not limited to these:

Automatically detect sharing of sensitive data in chat and tokenize values but allow de-tokenization with proper authority
Build a privacy-preserving machine learning model
Create a HIPPA compliant chatbot
Build a privacy-preserving data analytics pipeline

Your completed application should be available as open source on GitHub.

RippleX Challenge - New Year, New NFTs

1st Prize: $5000 XRP
Questions - Contact:
What to Build: Build Functional NFTs that span across a full range of use cases

The XRP Ledger - or XRPL - is a decentralized, permissionless, open-source blockchain that anybody can contribute to, develop on, and transact on. []

The XRP Ledger was the first blockchain to allow the tokenization of assets. Regardless of whether the assets are fiat, cryptocurrencies, NFTs, or other forms of tokens, the XRP Ledger's built-in tokenization functionality and built-in decentralized exchange make it ideal for developers to add the decentralized management of tokens to their applications.

This challenge is open to all developers to explore, discover, and build an NFT project on the XRP Ledger. You can use any of the SDKs and APIs [] for the XRP Ledger, both in production and on NFT-Devnet []

This must integrate with, or be built on, the XRP Ledger (XRPL). We recommend using NFT-Devnet (test network)

Start building on the XRPL by first checking out the documentation and resources.
