Similar to previous H3 competitions, H3 will provide a Capture the Flag competitive track for students to compete for prizes* and recognition. H3’s CTF competition includes web, forensics, crypto, binary, social engineering, lock-picking, and other challenges. Players compete at the individual level (no teams) to gain points for every flag captured. 

First Place:      $1000
Second Place: $500
Third Place:    $250

Educational Track

Time: 8:30am – 6:00pm on Saturday, August 23

View the Schedule

In addition to the competitive track, H3 will introduce an educational track with the intent to provide a hands-on educational series. The educational track will provide teaching demos and CTF walk-throughs for students to learn the tools and methods used in hacking. There will also be separate prizes* and giveaways for the educational track. 

If you are new to hacking or want to expand your hacking skills, please choose the educational track as we believe it will help prepare you to be competitive in future CTF competitions!

 


* Winners must be age 18 or over and be registered at a school at the collegiate level. Students at other levels (e.g. highschool) may participate, but are not eligible to win (although your skills will be recognized!)

Please direct all questions to h3@gatech.edu.
