The skills to participate in CTF events can be learned by visiting the lecture IT Security: Attack and Defense which takes place in room 133 every wednesday from 11:45 to 13:15 and 14:15 to 15:45 in the winter semester 2022/2023. Seats are limited to 20 students. If you have already visited the lecture and like to continue your hacker journey then join the CTF team. You may also join the CTF team without visiting the lecture.

The student CTF team meets by video conference and in rooms 141 and 142 every friday during the semester starting at 4 PM. Access to the video conference and the CTF material is provided via the corresponding ILIAS course. If you are interested in joining us or just want to have a look, contact Prof. Dr. Heuzeroth by e-mail.
