C2C 2017

HACKATHON DETAILS

Participants were required to be enrolled at select UK- and US-based universities in order to participate. A practice forum was held 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 competed in an online ‘mini CTF’ on April 1-2, 2017, to qualify for the C2C Hackathon. The total run time for the online session was 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. 

Faculty from MIT and the University of Cambridge arranged blended teams with students from both countries. Each team was organized in such a way to play upon the strengths of each competitor in order to make a cohesive team.

The event was held at the University of Cambridge in Cambridge, UK, and comprised of a graduated set of exercises in binary exploitation, web security, reverse engineering, cryptography and forensics in a scored CTF competition, along with several open interactive activities.
