Test Your Hacking Skills: Join Tenable’s Annual CTF Competition!
Tenable launches the 2022 Capture the Flag event for the security community, running from June 9-13.
Get ready to test your hacking skills, practice new ones and see how you measure up against others in the industry by joining this year’s Capture the Flag event. Each year, Tenable hosts its Capture the Flag events, giving security practitioners an opportunity to showcase their cybersecurity skills and talents in a fun and engaging competition.
We’re proud to announce that our annual Capture the Flag event will be held in June 2022. Whether you’re a seasoned pro who started your career with Nessus or a “newbie” to the security industry, we invite you to compete for the chance to win prizes and bragging rights through a series of security-related challenges. You may complete these challenges solo or with a team.
Tenable team members, from zero-day research to vulnerability detection, have put their heads together to develop a broad and unique set of challenges to give competitors of diverse backgrounds a chance to have fun as you put your skills to the test. We’re excited, once again, to put together our very own CTF and see what this community can accomplish.
Register here to save your spot! You can register as an individual or a team of up to five participants. The event will run from Thursday, June 9, 2022 at 12:00 pm ET to Monday, June 13, 2022 at 12:00 pm ET. The competition will be run through the CTFd.io platform. Please use a valid email address when registering; it will be used for competition updates and prize distribution.
Earn points by competing in a variety of CTF challenges. Points available for challenges will increase as the difficulty of the challenges increase. Additionally, some challenges will grant fewer points over time or may decrease in point value if you use hints to solve them. Competitors will not be required to use Tenable products to participate in the competition but Nessus Essentials may be a useful tool for some challenges.
The top three teams or individuals will be awarded prizes. Only participants in the U.S. are eligible for monetary prizes. Winning participants outside of the U.S. will be recognized in the award ceremony and with a digital certificate or badge. You can find full contest terms here. Winning submissions will receive a single prize, whether a team or individual.
- First place - $500 Amazon Gift Card
- Second place - $300 Amazon Gift Card
- Third place - $200 Amazon Gift Card
- The top 100 teams will have the option to opt in and receive a limited edition 2022 Tenable CTF T-Shirt!
