ECU Workshop

Educational CTF Workshop with ISSA

Learner's Section: ECU 2020

On October 3, 2020, StormCTF will be working with ECU and Raleigh ISSA to go over a CTF workshop. The attending group will be getting familiar with a CTF environment while StormCTF is able to test the stability of the network under remote stress. The 2020 InfoSeCon StormCTF Learner's subnet will be available for play.


The network that you will be accessing to participate in the Capture the Flag event is considered HOSTILE. This means that bad things can happen to your machine while connected to the VPN. By participating in this event you accept the risk and understand it's a bad idea to use a device that has irreplaceable or confidential information on it.
