Capture the Flag

Capture the Flag (CTF) is a special Information Security competition. It comprises a series of challenges that vary in degree of difficulty and require participants to exercise different skill sets to solve. Once an individual challenge is solved, a “flag” is given to the player and they submit this flag to the CTF server to earn points.

CTF events are typically timed and the points are added to get a total once the time has expired. The winning player/team is the one solved the most challenges and thus secured the highest score.
