RuCTFE is an annual online international challenge in information security. It has been held 5 times already.

The contest is driven by classic rules. Each team is given a set of vulnerable services. Organizers regulary fill services with private information — the flags. The goal of each team is to find vulnerabilities, fix them in their services and exploit them in order to get flags from other teams. Please refer to the rules page and Wikipedia article for slightly more info.

Top 10 Russian student teams according to the results of RuCTFE 2014 will be invited to the annual national Russian university challenge in information security RuCTF 2015.

RuCTFE 2014 starts December 20, 2014 at 10:00 UTC and will last for 9 hours. As usual, the network will be closed for the first hour.
