What is it?

The Summit is a CTF competition put on by the Cyber Security Club at Virginia Tech and a networking opportunity for students interested in security. Teams and students will be invited to participate. Any student is allowed to join. If your school or club did not receive an invitation, please email officers@vtcsec.org.

VTCSec has designed new challenges for people to solve in person. We have created challenges related to real issues in security and have used our experience competing in past CTF’s. We will be hosting challenges in the following areas:

  • Exploitation
  • Embedded Hardware
  • Networking
  • Web applications
  • Forensics
  • Reversing
  • Cryptography
  • Operational Security

Diverse skill sets on teams will be helpful. Challenges are designed to be difficult to be solved by one person alone.

When and where is it?

It will be hosted at Virginia Tech on March 17th at Room 104B in Surge Space Building. Note - Parking will be free on the weekend, there are lots near by at the Lower and Upper Stranger Lots (outside of Surge), Perry Street Lot 3 (outside of Goodwin), and Perry Street Lot 1 (across from NCB)

It will run all day. Food and drink will be provided. Hotel rooms will be provided to those that have to travel too far to leave in the morning, please request these directly by email as soon as possible.

What are the team rules?

Teams will have a maximum of 5 members. Teams do not need to be all from one school, and each school may have multiple teams. Teams will be registered at the event, only individuals need to register below.

How do I sign up?

The deadline for signups has passed. Hopefully we will see you next year!
