In this thrilling edition of the Exploring Information Security Podcast, I talk with David Coursey about how to play capture the flag (infosec-style).
David (@dacoursey) is one of the organizers of the Charleston ISSA chapter. At DerbyCon 2014 he experienced his first CTF. He had such a good time that he decided to put together the CTF for BSides Charleston two months later. Through those experiences he has learned a lot and has participated in many more CTFs this past year.
In this episode we discuss:
- What is a CTF event?
- What is needed to get starter?
- How to play a CTF?
- How to win a CTF?
- What makes for an excellent CTF
