Fairgame CTF 2014

Fairgame CTF is an internal recruiting competition RPISEC has used in past years to pick up new members and find more people at the school who enjoy working through an array of different computer security challenges. It emulates a real jeopardy styled hacking competition that we find ourselves competing in year after year, and it will give you a good idea of some of the challenges this club comes face to face with in real competitions.

It's more casual and targeted at newcomers so we welcome anyone to signup and play! It will last for about two weeks! So dive in and see if you can solve anything.

Please note that Fairgame CTF is only accessible on the RPI campus for obvious reasons.

If you have any questions, comments, or need hints - hop on our IRC server and join the discussion!

First Meeting - 08/29/2014 Meeting

We will be having the first RPISEC meeting of the 2014-2015 school year tonight!

WHEN: 5pm – 7pm, Friday, August 29, 2014

During the meeting we will introduce the club leadership and give a primer on the ridiculously fun stuff this club does. Directly following that we will introduce and play a few challenges from Fairgame CTF, a mini competition that RPISEC will be running for the next two weeks specifically to give you a small taste of hacking/security work.

Make sure your laptops are charged! You’ll need them to hop on Fairgame. We’ll do our best to bring power strips and distribute them around the room, but DCC is a pain for power routing.

New School Year, New Website

Hello and welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! We have some big plans for the club this year and are excited to get things rolling. While last year had its merits, we had no idea how to run a club as it was a first for all of us. There's better organization, bigger ambitions, and even more passion to make things work this year.

To kick things off we're launching a brand new website for the club, laying to rest our old pathetic site. The website is still a work in progress and will be further developed as the year goes on. With that in mind, let me be the first to welcome you to the new site!

Last year was a learning experience, this year will be an adventure. Onwards, to 2014-2015!
