Welcome to the Tech Inc Capture the Flag (CTF) training event series!

The format of this series is likely to evolve over time, but I currently assume that these evenings will feature a combination of web-based challenges, online competitions, and general-purpose learning/workshop evenings covering a variety of computer security (i.e. hacking, defensive) topics. Everyone of all skill levels is welcome!!!!

About the CTF Training Evenings

Types of evenings

I envision the following 3 kinds of CTF training evenings:

  • 2 - Challenge website evenings
    • I setup a Scoreboard, so we can keep track of who's done which challenges
  • 3 - Actual CTF events
    • There's a bunch of them on CTF Time - we should participate!
    • We can probably also join VUBAR when they are playing here! (Brainsmoke said that this would probably be okay)
    • We can also participate in own events, at other times..
  • Possible team name: Knuffelhackers

Other things that we can do

  • Setup a vulnerable server (Damn Vulnerable Linux, Metasploitable, etc..) and attack it
  • Preparing for competitions
    • Setup Etherpad (or another online "multiplayer notepad") so people can make notes and work together for each challenge
    • Preparing tools (Backtrack VM, other VM images with different tools)
    • Being able to emulate weird architectures for binaries
    • Being able to test shellcode on our own system
    • Maybe we can do something with hardware in the space (i have no idea what the status is of VMWare cluster in space, but i think we have one..)
  • Brainsmoke could talk about binary exploitation
    • We can also look at gdb / objdump / IDA / Hex-Rays
