IDA Challenge: CTF & Cybersecurity with TDC
One of TDC’s pentesters, Florian, who holds a background from DTU (MSc in Telecommunications) will do a short introduction on how they are working with cyber security in TDC, and after that we will jump directly into the CTF challenge, where all the fun hacking begins.

The CTF competition lasts 5 hours, where you as a a participant get the ability to improve your skills, but also to capture flags. The competition is Jeopardy-style with 4-5 categories and 20+ challenges, with topics such as:

  • Web exploitation (XSS, Broken Authentication, SQL-injections, etc.)
  • Wireless (NFC hacking, radio and maybe WiFi)
  • Password cracking
  • Miscellaneous

So come and challenge you and your friend's hacking skills. You can join as an individual (and we will help you find team members) or you can come as a team. We will make sure to feed you with pizzas as well during the evening. Help and hints will be provided to everyone who is stuck, so don’t be afraid to join if you haven’t had experience with cyber security before :)

By the way: We will provide you with pizza.
