Welcome to Ruxcon Capture The Flag (CTF), Australia's longest running CTF competition! A game designed to test your computer hacking skills and problem solving abilities against friends and foes from all across Australia within a fun and friendly environment.

There are no software requirements but if you have never played a CTF before then installing Kali, Burp, and Metasploit will be enough to get you started. Additionally, http://trailofbits.github.io/ctf provides a CTF field guide which you may find useful.
Ruxcon CTF is designed to accommodate all levels of skill and experience, but more importantly, CTF is a fun challenge which anyone can play and it doesn’t require a whole lot of commitment or advanced skills. So if you’re not the competitive type and you’re just a little bit curious please register and have a bit of a poke around. We will provide solutions for all levels once the competition is over.
