What Challenges are there?

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

In addition, this year’s theme is THUNDERDOME. This means that there will be multiple challenges where all teams will have to continually attack the central service to steal control from each other.

What are the team rules?

Teams will have a maximum of 5 members. Teams can register at the event, and do not need to all be from one school. There is a maximum of 2 graduate students per team.
