CSAW CTF Qualifiers 2016

Last weekend, we were one of over 1200 teams to participate in Cyber Security Awareness Week Qualifiers, an international competition hosted by NYU Tandon. This year, CSAW hosted 31 challenges, in categories such as Reversing, Crypto, Forensics, Pwning, and Web.

We had a great time, and managed to solve every challenge on the board with 13 hours to spare. We placed second overall, first in the undergraduate division, and ended up being the only undergraduate team to solve the entire board. This was an international competition, and we were competing against industry-professional and undergraduate teams alike.

Finalists are to be announced on October 3rd. If you missed the competition but still want to checkout the challenges, CSAW's official challenge repository can be found here.
