TU Capture The Flag

What is a CTF?
Capture the Flag (CTF) is a special kind of information security competition.
Jeopardy-style CTFs have a couple of questions (tasks) in a range of categories. For example, Web, Forensic, Crypto, or Binary, etc. Teams can gain points for every solved task, more points for more complicated tasks usually. The next task in chain can be opened only after a team solves the previous task. When the game time is over, the competing teams are ranked by the sum of points. A famous example of such a CTF is Defcon CTF quals.
