Due to the pandemic, CyberSEED'21 is a completely online event. Yet, this should not stop us from having a blast! As before, we welcome teams who will compete in a new and exciting capture the flag event designed specifically for this latest installment of CyberSEED. We look forward to a great event with broad participation. Let the fun begin!

The Capture the Flag Competition will touch on a variety of cybersecurity challenges including a set of flags focusing on reverse engineering, web application security, network traffic analysis, cryptography, amongst others. The competition will require breadth of skills including some basic scripted programming capabilities as well as a facility with network monitoring and forensics tools.
