More information on logistics will be posted in the slack channel. If you have issues joining, please contact psekhar.

What are CTFs? Capture the Flag (CTF) is a computer security competition. There are several types- we’ll be doing “jeopardy style” ones. In this type, we work together to solve puzzles, break into systems, and exploit security bugs to “capture the flag,” finding secret keys that give you points. There are different categories of problems (crypto, forensics, web, reversing, finding people on the internet..) with a range of difficulties, so prior experience isn’t required to get started and have fun.
