PHD CTF Quals opens up a team registration for the information security contests

The coming December will see a qualification competition for PHD CTF, an international information security contest. The main contests will be held on May 30-31, 2012, in Moscow, Russia, as a part of Positive Hack Days, an international forum on information security.

This year everyone can participate in the qualification competitions: either in CTF Quals, or in CTF Afterparty. The competitions will contest participants’ skills of information security assessment, vulnerability search and exploitation, reverse engineering and hacking in general. The contest conditions will be as close to the real-life ones, as possible: vulnerabilities used for PHD CTF Quals and CTF Afterparty are not made-up but taken from the “wildlife”.

PHD CTF Quals, held on December 10-11, will identify the best teams, who will compete at the main contests on May 30-31, 2012, at the Positive Hack Days forum.

December 12-25 will carry on with individual competitions: the top participants will be awarded with diplomas and certificates from Positive Technologies and will be able to take part in the May contests at the forum.

Registration for the qualification competition is now open.
