CTF TECHKRITI 18 IIT Kanpur
CTFs are computer security/hacking competitions which generally consist of participants breaking, investigating, reverse engineering and doing anything they can to reach the end goal, a "flag" which is usually found as a string of text.
These competitions distill major disciplines of professional computer security work into short, objectively measurable exercises. The focus areas that CTF competitions tend to measure are vulnerability discovery, exploit creation, toolkit creation, and operational tradecraft. As the challenges are designed to teach, CTF requires contestants to integrate concepts, develop skills and learn to hack as they go. The finalists compete for cash prizes, where their performance will be judged by a panel of technical experts.
“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.” - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
