WHAT IS A CTF ?

CTFs (short for capture the flag) are a type of computer security competition. Contestants are presented with a set of challenges which test their creativity, technical (and googling) skills, and problem-solving ability. Challenges usually cover a number of categories (see below), and when solved, each yields a string (called a flag) which is submitted to an online scoring service. CTFs are a great way to learn a wide array of computer security skills in a safe, legal environment, and are hosted and played by many security groups around the world for fun and practice.

WHAT TOPICS WILL BE COVERED ?

Just about anything is fair game in Capture the Flag. Our high level categories are Forensics, Cryptography, Eeverse Engineering, Binary Exploitation, Web Exploitation and Realistics. You should not feel discouraged if you don’t know much about these topics; the whole point is to learn new things !

WHO IS THIS FOR ?

Everyone can participate onsite. Create a team of 3 members and join us !

WHEN ? WHERE ?

The CTF will take place during the Moroccan Cyber Security Camp on 06 & 07 Mai 2017 at ENSIAS, Rabat.

IS MCSC CTF DIFFICULT ?

Yes, but not too difficult! We have lots of challenges: some of them we expect just about every team to solve, some we expect no one to solve. If the competition is not tough, it will not be fun or educational either.

WHAT CONSTITUTES CHEATING IN THIS COMPETITION ?

Attacking the scoring server, other teams, or machines not explicitly designated as targets is cheating. This includes both breaking into such machines and denying others access to them (for example, by altering a key or ping-flooding).

Sharing keys or providing overly-revealing hints with other teams is cheating, as is being directly assisted by personnel outside the team (using tools from the internet is OK; asking people on the internet to help you solve the problem is not).

We encourage you to solve problems in novel and creative ways using all available resources, but we do require that you solve them yourselves.

WHAT DO WE GET IF WE WIN ?
