Welcome to the OWASP Capture The Flag (CTF) project!

Ahead of the OWASP AppSec-NY in 2009, the idea came up to supply an OWASP CTF event. This has been repeated successfully for the AppSec-EU 2009. Both developed by volunteering individuals, putting in a big amount of work, building the CTF from scratch. As the CTF event was warmly welcomed by those who participated, it was clear, the CTF has to become a event available for each OWASP event. To make this possible, the CTF project has been created!
