CTF (Capture The Flag) is a type of computer security competition. Contestants are presented with a set of challenges and puzzles which test their creativity, technical coding (and googling) skills, and problem-solving ability. Challenges usually cover a number of categories and when solved, each yields a “flag” which is submitted to a real-time scoring service. The difficulty levels are from beginner to advanced.
CTF tournaments are a great and fun way for software developers to learn a wide array of application security skills in a safe and legal environment.
Top scorers will win prizes kindly donated by cyber security technology vendors.
Most programming languages supported.
IMPORTANT: Please bring your own LAPTOP and a charger for the event.
