Capture the Flag on 31C3

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

Dear Congress Visitors,

For the 3rd time during CCC you can take part in the CTF competition, proving you are a worthy hacker. Grab a bunch of friends and knock on our ports, smash some stacks, corrupt some heaps and get yourself some shells. Servers are expecting your exploits from Dec. 27 at 21h00 CET for 48 consecutive hours.

The CTF will be in “jeopardy style”, requiring no setup on your part and it will be open to everyone, online or on-site. Register your team at 31c3ctf.aachen.ccc.de and visit our assembly to bribe us with beer or mate. There will be a couple of easier challenges, so if you have never played before, this is the time!

Good luck and have fun!

Capture the Flag

Friday, December 20th, 2013

Dear Congress Visitors!

You’re tired of running around the Congress on the Schnitzeljagd (sounds like it’s fun!) or didn’t get a place? You’re like knocking your head on problems? Then we might offer something interesting for you!

Grab a few friends and join our capture the flag competition. These so called CTFs are hacking competitions in which participants solve various challenges – all based around gaining access to remote machines by exploiting vulnerable binaries, solving mathematical problems and completing various other tasks. This CTF will be run in “Jeopardy” style, i.e. challenges can be solved independently and are divided into categories. Each solved challenge gains your team points based on its difficulty. You will be able to track your and other team’s progress on a publicly visible scoreboard.

The CTF will start on day 1 (december 27th) at 20:00 CET (that’s 19:00 UTC) and lasts for 48 hours. The registration will be open before and during the competition, so anyone can join in late. In line with the usual motto Congress Everywhere, teams are able to participate remotely. Even if you never played in a CTF before, don’t hesitate to take part!

If you still have any questions, you can meet the CTF organizers at their Assembly.

Good luck and have fun!
