RuCTF is annual open all-Russian intercollegiate competition and conference on information protection. It is our 11th of hosting RuCTF (Here, check this out: 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2008.5), and we are always glad to have new participants.

RuCTF is conducted according to the classic CTF rules. The teams get identical servers with a set of vulnerable services which periodically receive private data, called flags, from jury. The goal of each team is to find weaknesses, remove them at their own server and use them to get flags from rivals.
