There is a need for common, accessible data sets for use in security testing, training, tuning of systems and experimentation. Live captures of data from security conferences and Capture The Flag (CTF) exercises offer one possible way of obtaining such data. In the past year, CERT researchers have captured this data at three such events. This talk presents our experiences, lists benefits, challenges, and thoughts on possible future captures.
