Beginners Intro
To Capture the Flag

Feeling like a cyber-n00b? Our intro to CTF event is a great way for beginners to jump into the world of hacking. Come early so our SecureSet instructors can help you configure your system and coach you along the way. You’ll be a flag catching maestro in no time!

We have added on an extra hour to begin the evening at 5:00 PM, so that those wanting to set up their laptop, will have the opportunity to do so with a few extra SecureSet volunteers. If you have not played cyber Capture the Flag before, this is your chance to get started! Regular competition will begin at 6:00 PM. BONUS: Bring a friend & enter a drawing for your chance to win a voucher to take the Security + certification exam! Looking forward to seeing New & Familiar Cybersecurity Enthusiasts!

CTF Participants will need the following:
+ Linux or some other *nix system that they prefer. It can be a VM or bare metal system.
+ Ability to access 802.11n (2.4 GHz) wireless or if desired, the ability to connect to ethernet.
+ Most levels can be done with an SSH client and a web browser.
+ A Friend!

****If you need help getting your system configured per the above requirements, come early (5p) to get help from one of our instructors!

Public parking is available in the Palm Parking Garage. There are two-hour parking spots available along the street as well. The main entrance to SecureSet is located on the patio at the East side of the old Don Vicente hotel. You will see an open black gate at the back-right corner of the East patio. Take the stairs to the second-floor patio and enter through the French doors.


CTF is a fun, team-based way for you to put your crypto-competence to the test. You’ll have to use real-life hacking skills as you try to solve a series of progressively more difficult challenges. Whether you’re cyber-savvy or just cyber-curious, CTF is an awesome time for all experience levels. SecureSet instructors will be there to help, so n00bs are welcome!
