Capturing the Flag: An Introduction to Competitive Cybersecurity Capture the Flag Competitions
A key part of practicing any skill is putting it to the test in a real-world environment. For hackers, Capture the Flag (CTF) competitions offer a simulation of security challenges that require teams to identify, exploit, and defend programs from vulnerabilities. These games are often held at a global scale in a variety of formats, and provide excellent opportunities to develop adversarial and innovative mindsets in the next generation of cybersecurity experts.
This Innovation Quarter session gives participants an overview of CTF competitions, including their history, types of challenges, skills and techniques used in the games, and how to get started. Geared toward individuals of all computer skill levels and academic programs - from those with a mild curiosity toward cybersecurity, to those who are actively pursuing degrees in related fields - this session is hosted by ASU faculty who are CTF competitors and game architects.
Open to undergraduate and graduate students of all computer skills levels and academic programs
