HOW DO I BECOME A PARTICIPANT OF RuCTF?
Usually RuCTF is taking place off-line in Ekaterinburg, but due to the pandemic we temporarily moved online.
HOW TO BECOME A PARTICIPANT THIS YEAR?
This year we will hold an online competition for the top 25 student teams RuCTFE 2020 and RuCTFE 2019 (25 teams from each year). We haven't sent out all the invitations yet, but we can already tell you: SFT0 were the top 25 student teams in 2020, and RedRocket in 2019. If you are above these teams in the scorboard - welcome to RuCTF, we will write to you soon.
HOW TO BECOME A PARTICIPANT NEXT YEAR OR SUBSEQUENT YEARS?
Invitation to the final game goes to the teams:
- who have performed well in our qualifying round - RuCTFE;
- who have won one of our friendly competitions.
In addition to the teams that received an invitation to the finals, a place is also reserved on the playing field for one national guest team, which is formed from the participants of the individual teams that did not receive an invitation.
You may qualify for the guest team under the following conditions:
- your university is not represented at this year's RuCTF;
- you have not participated in previous RuCTF finals;
- up to three people from your university participate in the visiting team.
Finally, if your team was not invited to the final and did not make the guest team, you can come to the game as observers or speakers. This status does not allow you to participate directly in the game, but gives you the opportunity to observe the game, study the jury's work during the competition and attend the conference.
Independent observers may be representatives of commercial firms, government agencies and other organisations.
Currently, there are two regional competitions whose winners we consider worthy of taking part in the RuCTF finals:
