Ready to Test Your Hacking Skills? Join Tenable’s First CTF Competition!
Tenable launches new Capture the Flag event for the security community, running from February 18–22.
Capture the Flag events are a tried and true way of testing your cybersecurity skills, practicing new ones and seeing how you measure up against others in the industry.
At Tenable, we wanted to put on a CTF specifically for our community. We’re proud to announce the first Tenable Capture the Flag will be held in February 2021!
Whether you’re a seasoned pro who started their career with Nessus or are just starting out in security, all are welcome to compete. Win prizes and bragging rights through a series of security-related challenges — either solo or with a team.
We’re excited to put together our very own CTF and see what this community can accomplish. Tenable team members, from zero-day research to vulnerability detection, have put their heads together to develop a broad set of challenges to give competitors of diverse backgrounds a chance to have fun as you put your skills to the test.
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, February 18, 2021 at 12:00 pm ET to Monday, February 22, 2021 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.
There will be a variety of challenge types in this CTF through which competitors can earn points. Points available for challenges will increase as the difficulty of the challenges increase. Some challenges will grant fewer points over time or may decrease in point value if you use hints to solve them. Competitors won’t 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
Note: Participants will also have a chance to win other prizes, such as a limited-release Tenable CTF t-shirt! Stay tuned — more details will be available on the competition platform.
This is meant to be a friendly competition — please no spoilers! Be careful not to share any challenge solutions publicly until after the competition wrap-up and award ceremony on February 25, 2021. (Sign-up details for the Tenable CTF Debrief & Awards Ceremony webinar will be coming soon.)
