Capture The Flag – World Domination


Capture The Flag – World Domination is an attack only competition set up and run for the very first time by the CTF Crew! The game mimics real world scenarios and events, bringing the technical attack fun of hacking into the competition.

For the first time ever, the Amsterdam CTF team introduces a new section, hardware hacking and lock picking! Whether it is to lockpick a simple lock to get a flag, to exploit a certain binary or a need to bypass the encryption on a embedded system, this game will make even the most elite “hackers” sweat. There are over 30+ flags to capture and flag points decrease after each submission. Fastest player to submit a flag gets more points compared to the next player. The winner is determined by who ever has the most points. The game consists of a corporate network and various other challenges and players will need to find the DMZs and work from there.
