C2C 2017

Participants must be enrolled at select UK- and US-based universities in order to participate. A practice forum will be open in February 2017 to allow all participants a chance to prepare for the qualifying round, followed by an online practice round on March 11-12, 2017.

All participants will complete in an online ‘mini CTF’ on April 1-2, 2017, to qualify for the C2C Hackathon. The total run time for the online session is estimated to be 60 hours or 2.5 days. Participants are selected to participate in the live events based on performance in the online qualifier. The more challenges completed in the qualifier, the higher a participant will place, so plan to devote enough time to the online challenge. 

Registration is now open: C2C Registration Form! Faculty from MIT and the University of Cambridge will arrange blended teams with students from both countries. Each team will be organized to play upon the strengths of each competitor in order to make a cohesive team.

The event will be comprised of a graduated set of exercises in binary exploitation, web security, reverse engineering, cryptography and forensics in a scored CTF competition. There will also be several open interactive activities as well.

More details about the national-level online qualifying coming soon!
