Capture The Flag
From BruCON 2017
This year we will have three (3!) different CTF competitions at BruCON! All the CTFs are free to join!
- Team CTF on Wednesday 26/10/2016
- Student CTF on Wednesday 26/10/2016
- Individual CTF during the BruCON conference (27-28/10/2016)
This contest will allow up to 10 teams to compete, solving challenges, creating exploits to attack opponents and defending their own infrastructure. In this CTF we will give you challenges related to exploitation of vulnerabilities, Web security, Databases Security, Reverse engineering and Cryptography.
Players will compete for 8 hours to get first place in the CTF.
Requirements: Register your Team with a maximum of 5 players per team. Bring a network switch and patch cords for the team players. Bring a separate laptop where Vulnerable Virtual Machine (OVA Format - VirtualBox) will be installed
Level: Medium / Advanced
In a fully fledged CTF requires a specific set of skills, for this, BruCON will be organising a student CTF where we will guide students through a CTF competition! The student CTF covers 4 different topics each containing a number of challenges. After each topic you can try the challenges yourself and see how you can use your acquired skills! We will learn about SQL Injection attacks, Android reverse engineering, Traffic analysis with Wireshark and a number of CTF tips and tricks. This CTF is focussed on beginning students, no prior knowledge is required since most of the CTF is seen as an introductory session.
Requirements: Register as an individual player for the CTF Being a student in 2016-2017 If you bring a laptop, make sure you have WireShark installed
This contest is played on a Jeopardy scheme with 20 different classic challenges such as categories: reverse engineering, cryptography, digital forensics, web security, vulnerability exploitation and perhaps some hardware hacking;)
The CTF will be open for 30 hours during the BRUCON two-day event (27, 28).
Participation in the CTF is free.
The expectation is that you can have a good time, playing and learning about different security issues.
Requirements: Register as an individual player for the CTF Bring your own equipment and tools
Level: Basic / Medium
