Playing the CTF
The rules to participate and playing the CTF might change depending to the event the CTF is organized at. What you find below is what we think, the CTF should be done..
Register at the CTF organizer with your MAC address and participant name. Once you have access to the application, register with your chosen game name and the game is started. You can join whenever you like when the game has started until the declared end of the game.
- You play with your own laptop.
- The game is open during the conference time.
- Attacking the CTF outside of the challenges results in disqualification.
- Attacking CTF competitors results in disqualification.
- For each solved challenge you get one point.
- Who has the most challenges solved wins.
- By same score, first scored wins.
- Groups and single player are treated the same
- This is a proposal of rules. Those can be changed, depending on the event where the CTF is held.
Who can anticipate in the CTF?
- Single Players, every one can participate in a CTF event by themselves.
- Groups, you can team up with others and participate as a group. Dividing the prices is the responsibility of the group members, though.
- With each challenge you can get a certain score, depending on the difficulty of the challenge. After solving a challenge, a key is gained. You will have to insert that key into your account screen and points are added to your account. In case of same number of points, whoever scores first wins.
- With the current CTF system all challenges are worth one (1) point.
The challenges are categorized in Web, Networking and Forensic.
- Web challenges
- Networking challenges
- Forensic challenges
The current CTF contains the following categories:
- Web; your "default" web challenges
- Networking; networking related challenges
- Others; all other challenges that can't be fitted under the other categories.
The scoreboard will display the ranking of all playing users.

- Can I have a copy of the challenges?
- Short answer, no. Long answer, depending on the 'strength' of the challenges they will be reused across multiple Capture the Flag events. Releasing the challenges might bring an unfair advantage to some of the players.
- How can I help?
- Everybody can help by providing challenges, or ideas for challenges.
CTF is developed by a worldwide team of volunteers. The primary contributors to date have been:
As of 2014, the priorities are:
The framework is almost finished. The final quirkes are tested at the Owasp BeNeLux days and will be uploaded afterwards.
The latest design and logo (thanks to my wife) are used, waiting on some feedback from actual players.
The next version of the framework will contain a better template mechanism for customisation and a construction to be able to play network challenges without having to worry of you hackers taking over the complete system ;)
The various challenges that will be released depend on the feedback from the various events where the CTF has been held. The easiest challenges will slowly disapear from the CTF and will be made available for download.
Involvement in the development and promotion of the CTF is actively encouraged! We need people who can help in designing and building challenges. Feel free to send ideas (or even finished challenges) to Steven (firstname.lastname@example.org) and he'll try to include it in the CTF.
