NYUPoly CSAW Capture the Flag Application Security Challenge
NYUPoly Cyber Security Awareness Week
From its humble beginnings as a small, local cyber security competition to the largest student-centered cyber security competition in the United States, CSAW has become a true worldwide phenomenon. Now in its 10th year, CSAW has grown to include a research conference, talks by industry experts, and a career fair featuring an impressive list of corporate partners.
Hosted by NYU-Poly’s Information Systems and Security Laboratory (ISIS Lab), the competition’s hands-on challenges are created and managed by NYU-Poly graduate and undergraduate students in consultation with NYU-Poly faculty and industry leaders. CSAW attracts the best and brightest high school, undergraduate and graduate students from around the globe, making it an event for students, by students, fostered by experts.
CSAW CTF is a entry-level CTF, designed for undergraduate students who are trying to break into security.
The CSAW Application Security Challenge is a cyber attack competition loosely based on the DefCon Capture the Flag Prequals. Participants will be given a series of challenges divided into different categories, each worth a specified number of points. This year, the competition will focus equally on web application security, reversing, and exploitation. Make sure you are a jack-of-all-trades or put together a team with a diverse skill set.
