.::DEFCON 201 Online CTF Practice — PlaidCTF — April 17th-19th::.
Welcome to the DEFCON 201 Crypto CTF Practice Challenge!
For over two years we have been planing running our own Wargames and CTF to help people develop their hacking skills. While progress is still being made (we plan to launch our own in Winter 2020), DC201 will also occasionally enter into various online CTF Tournaments to test our skills and to get a sample on how one is set up so we have a blueprint in creating our own.
This Friday, from April 17th, 5:00 PM EST to April 19th, 5:00 PM EST, we invite all DEFCON 201 Members, Attendees and Fans to help us hack the PlaidCTF!
Anyone can enter by joining our group and entering our DISCORD Chat! Once in chat, select the #CTF channel and follow the instructions. This is how you will obtain thd DC201 Team Username and Password Log-In. You are then ready to hack away!
