OSINT CTF Challenges

What is CTF?

CTF (short for Capture the Flag Competition) is a computer security gaming competition in which players solve information security-related tasks to score points. Although these competitions do not require running to capture the flag, the basic concept is the same. In security-focused CTFs, participants compete to find a flag (usually a long sequence of symbols) using modern hacking techniques. Capture the Flag, more commonly known as CTF, is an information security competition in which contestants must use a machine or piece of code to retrieve specific pieces of text that may be hidden on a web page or server known as a flag. It can include many tasks in different genres, such as reverse engineering, networks and protocols, programming, cryptography, web security, exploits, etc. All these puzzles have only one goal – capture the flag!

In recent years, CTFs have gained a lot of popularity among security professionals due to the wide range of benefits they bring. CTF is not only a great way to learn applicable technical skills in a fun environment, but also to tackle challenges that improve their interpersonal skills such as problem solving, time management and teamwork. PicoCTF is one such CTF that aims to introduce children to safety in an engaging and interactive way. CTFs are also known as useful networking platforms because different people with similar interests gather in one place. Most CTFs also promise cash prizes to winners, adding to the many benefits of participating.
