The ultimate test of wits in computer security occurs through open competition on the global Capture the Flag (CTF) tournament circuit. In CTF contests, experts reverse-engineer software, probe its weaknesses, search for deeply hidden flaws and create securely patched replacements.

This site documents the data gathered from the CGC qualifiers and the Final event, where teams competed for nearly $4 million in prizes.
