Capture the flag (CTF) competitions are a great way to assess student learning, foster interest in technical topics, or help your workforce test their skills and develop new ones in a fun, competitive environment. In this interactive session, we will introduce different types of capture-the-flag competitions and describe how to use them in the classroom or the workplace to drive interest and enhance learning in cybersecurity topics. We will give participants the opportunity to register for a CTF hosted by the Virginia Cyber Range, then examine some example challenges and demonstrate tools that you can use to solve them. Finally, we will direct participants to free (and other) CTF frameworks that they can use to upload their own challenges and host their own CTFs. Session participants will be able to continue playing the CTF competition for the duration of the conference and beyond! Bring your laptop and come ready to learn some new skills!
