NolaCon CTF 2017

NolaCon CTF Capture The Flag Event 2017

Capture the Flag (CTF) competitions train participants in cyber security and technical skills, together with things like cryptography and reverse engineering.

Categories: Cryptography, Network Exploitation, Packet Analysis, Programming, Reverse Engineering, Steganography, and Hacker Trivia

What score engine do we use? We use a custom built scoring engine called Hack the Arch.

What are castles? There will be 2 vulnerable hosts (1 Linux based and 1 windows based). These hosts are free to be hacked. When you do hack the hosts you will be able to claim the castle as your own and defend it. The longer you control the castles the more points you earn.

Prizes: We have great prizes for this year provided by Hak5 and NoStarch Press!!
