Capture The Flag


(Martin) #1

A CTF is an information security competition with tasks that you need to solve in order to get the flag and score points. The most common type is a jeopardy-style CTF where you have tasks pertaining to cryptography, web application security, reverse engineering, binary exploitation, and so on. CTFs are great for learning information security, and for becoming a security-aware developer.

If anyone is interested and would like to start a team, give me a reply.
