Our 7th annual Capture the Flag (CTF) cybersecurity competition is a global, knowledge-based challenge to create a safer digital world
Register your team for the online qualifier, and you could compete in the final competition for the prize of JPY 1,000,000 (approximately USD 9,000) and more.
Test your knowledge and skills in targeted attacks, Internet of Things (IoT), reversing, mobile, machine learning, and other cybersecurity issues.
The competition consists of an online qualifying event in September, and this and a special virtual final in December.
The online qualifier is in a “Jeopardy” style format — players solve challenges in various cybersecurity categories. The top 10 teams from the online qualifier will advance to compete in the final, which is a different take on the standard “Jeopardy” style format with a new dynamic value scoring element.
The top 3 teams will claim the following prizes following the special virtual final:
JPY 1,000,000 (approx. USD 9,000) for the winning team
ZDI Reward Points – 15,000 points per player (equivalent of ZDI Bronze) for each member of the winning team.
In addition, up to 4 members of the winning team will get a direct invitation to participate in the 2022 event finals..
