What is a CTF?

A CTF, or Capture the Flag, is a jeopardy-style cybersecurity competition. It consists of challenges of several categories, like cryptography, forensics, web development, reverse engineering, and more. Each challenge can be solved by completing a particular prompt, which will present you with a "flag", which you can submit to this website for points. A flag is a distinct string of text, typically surrounded by a descriptor and curly brackets, like byuctf{something here}.

We design challenges suitable for every skill level in our CTF. Remember that when it comes to earning points, the more difficult the challenge, the more points it will reward. We may add more challenges to the CTF throughout the week (if we do, we'll send out a notification here on CTFd).
