Description

Nettitude will run a capture the flag (CTF) event at 2pm on May 19. This will be conducted remotely via Microsoft Teams.

The event will last 3-4 hours in total, comprising of:

  • A short presentation about Nettitude and the penetration testing industry
  • The main CTF event
  • The announcement of winners, followed by an interactive Q&A

Pre-requisites:

  • Laptop or Desktop PC
  • Kali Linux VM (up-to-date with tools installed)
  • Internet access

There will be three practical challenges which students should tackle individually. Some prior hacking knowledge or CTF experience would be useful, but there are easy, medium, and hard flags, so the event will be accessible to tech-enthusiasts of any level.

Nettitude may also provide hints throughout the event, and assistance will be provided to participants in case any difficulties arise.
