"Po‘oihe" is a Hawaiian word that roughly translates to "Tip of the Spear".

The 2016 Po‘oihe Cyber Security Exercise is challenge-based exercise designed to present an environment that tests participants' knowledge of cybersecurity related concepts, tools and techniques and to support collaboration and education amongst all participants. The exercise will help assess the depth of understanding and operational competency in managing the challenges inherent in any organization's systems and network infrastructure.

This is the fourth year for this exercise and differs from previous years in that it's a challenge-based exercise where small teams of a maximum of five people need to hunt for "flags" of varying levels of difficulty to find both static and imbedded challenges. The maximum number of participants is capped at 100 participants.
