Our applied security contest (also called CTF as in "Capture The Flag") opposes 50 teams of 8 people trying to obtain the most points by capturing flags.
Those flags typically are secret messages hidden in different challenges.
The Challenges will be available to teams through a web portal on their own private contest network, they are not authorized to attack each other (it's not a red/blue team type of contest), they compete to have the most points on the leaderboard.
Challenges proposed will be from multiple security fields including:
networking, web application, binary reverse engineering, data forensics, hardware hacking, and more.
Here are few resources to help you prepare for the competition:
