Capture The Flag (CTF) competitions are a great way for IT security professionals to test their skills or learn new techologies, methods or attacks; also, an often-forgotten aspect is that they are really fun, thus there is always a huge (often worldwide) interest regarding such competitions (even local/regional ones).
In Hungary, we sadly do not have that many CTFs, but those we have are fantastic. The yearly Microsec-sponsored SecChallenge competition by The Laboratory of Cryptography and System Security (CrySyS Lab) of Budapest University of Technology and Economics is always truly remarkable, and this was the case for this year’s event as well. The challenges were sorted into several categories, which included cryptography, hardware and reverse engineering among many others. The competition were successfully held with ~140 participants, from February 25 to March 16.
Congratulations to the winners, as well as to CrySyS Student Core and c0r3dump for such quality work, and we encourage all students interested in the above-mentioned topics to participate in next year’s competition.
