What is a Capture the Flag Competition?
A Capture the Flag (CTF) is a special kind of information security competition. There are three common types of CTFs: Jeopardy, Attack-Defense and Mixed.
CTF games often touch on many other aspects of information security: cryptography, stego, binary analysis, reverse engineering, mobile security and others.
