Thursday, September 20th at 6pm – Capture the Flag(CTF) with Daniel Likarish

The Boulder chapter's June meeting will be held at the Aerstone offices on 17th and Pearl.

Welcome back from the summer hiatus!

OWASP Boulder resumes in September with a Capture the Flag (CTF) meeting. Next spring, SnowFROC 2013 will feature a CTF-style hacking competition organized by local volunteers. Come and share your CTF experience, ideas, and bad code. We will discuss tournament format, rules, and framework.

To kick-off the project, Professor Daniel Likarish of Regis University, organizer of the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (RMCCDC), will share his experiences in building a CTF tournament from scratch.

Although this meeting is oriented on developing a CTF tournament, we will discuss a variety of other current events.
