Want to play some hacking games?! You're in luck because The Hacking Club will be hosting its first Capture the Flag workshop! This event is a beginner friendly event. No prior knowledge required. You do not have to know how to hack, we will walk you through these CTF challenges.

Presented by The Hacking Club (SFSU)

What is Capture the Flag? Capture the Flag (CTF) is a type of information security game. There are two types, Attack and Defense and Jeopardy. For our first CTF event, we will be doing a Jeopardy style game.

Jeopardy-style CTFs involve multiple categories of problems, each of which contains a variety of questions of different point values and difficulties. Teams attempt to earn the most points in the competition's time frame (for example 24 hours), but do not directly attack each other. Rather than a race, this style of game play encourages taking time to approach challenges and prioritizes quantity of correct submissions over the timing.

Workshop Host:
Alf Muller, a CTF Competitor and SF State Student, will be assisting in challenges to get you to the end.
