Ethical hacking contest
In the domain of information security, Capture The Flag (CTF) is a game-like competition where participants are required to attack and defend computer systems in a controlled environment and in a legal way. Various problem solving tasks require from players knowledge in reverse engineering, web application analysis, cryptanalysis, forensics and exploit development among others.
There are mainly two types of CTF competitions:
Many CTF competitions are organised regularly online and locally. It is a good educational experience and a perfect way to learn and practice your skills in different security areas in real-world scenarios.
Faithful to last editions (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019) and to other major information security events, we offered our participants a nice CTF event.
It was located at La Marive, in the main conference building, on the Wednesday Nov 16, 2022 from 6:45pm till 11:00pm.
It was a Jepoardy-style CTF meaning that participants will be required to solve challenges in different categories (binary analysis, exploitation, forensics, web).
There was challenges in different categories (Web exploitation, software exploitation, reverse engineering, cryptography, etc.) with different levels accessible to begining, intermediate and advanced CTF-players.
This year the CTF was held at the same place than the conferences.
