Learn and improve your hacking skills with CTF challenges
Capture The Flag or CTF challenges are IT-security puzzles and competitions to practice (and show off) your hacking skills. The exact format can vary but the goal is always to collect one or more flags. You can compete alone or in teams, online or IRL. It’s all about problem solving within the IT-security realm and typical challenges include:
- Web and network penetration
- Reverse-engineering binary data and programs
- Finding weaknesses in cryptography
- Performing forensic investigations
- Attack/Defense battles
In this talk experienced CTF-veteran Zeta Two gives an introduction to the world of CTF. What it is, how to get started and show a live demo of a typical challenge.
Carl “Zeta Two” Svensson is a security professional and hobbyist currently working as the head of security at Swedish healthcare startup, Kry. He is a frequent CTF player for the Swedish top team HackingForSoju, organizer of Midnight Sun CTF and an active member of the Swedish and international security community with a great fondness for a broad range of topics, reverse engineering being one of his favorites.
