Event Description

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


  • A team, defined as a collaborative group of individuals, is only allowed to compete under one team name
  • A team is not allowed to give themselves or another team an unfair advantage
  • A member of one team is not allowed to share answers with another team
  • More than one uniquely-named team working together to secure multiple final round spots will not be tolerated



  • In the qualification round, there is no limit to the number of players on a team
  • In the final round, there is a limit of four undergraduate players per team
  • Only one team of four undergraduates from any given college may be allowed to compete in finals
  • If multiple teams from the same college qualify for finals, only the highest ranked team from the given college may be allowed to compete in finals



  • Please do not attack any CTF infrastructure: we have given out points in the past to teams who come forward about potential mistakes we've made
  • Denial of service attacks on any challenge will not be tolerated, unless the challenge calls for such an attack
  • Guessing keys will not be tolerated
  • If you are unsure about any rules or have any questions, always feel free to contact us .


The preliminary round of CTF is played on an online platform. Your team will need regular access to a computer and an Internet connection. We recommend that you have unfiltered Internet access, as well as the ability to install software.


Yes. We strive for fair and honest play and, in general, we want everyone to have fun. Please mind the following:

  • Teams should work independently; sharing answers or collaborating with another team to secure multiple spots at finals constitutes cheating
  • Attacking the CTF infrastructure and ddos attacks ruins the fun for everyone; unless a challenge calls for such an attack, please refrain from attacking CTF. It won’t be tolerated.
  • Guessing keys are not allowed
