Wireless Village CTF

Do you have what it takes to hack WiFi, Bluetooth, and Software Defined Radio (SDR)?

RF Hackers Sanctuary (the group formerly known as Wireless Village) is once again holding the Wireless Capture the Flag (WCTF) at BSidesDE.

We cater to both those who are new to radio communications as well as to those who have been playing for a long time. We are looking for inexperienced players on up to the SIGINT secret squirrels to play our games. The WCTF can be completely done with a little knowledge, a pen tester’s determination, and $40 or $4000 worth of equipment; the key is to read the clues and determine the goal of each challenge.

Each WCTF event begins with a presentation: How to WCTF. There will be clues everywhere, and we will provide periodic updates. Make sure you pay attention to what’s happening at the WCTF desk, on Twitter @wctf_us, @rfhackers, and the interwebz, etc. If you have a question – ASK! We may or may not answer at our discretion.


Bring: Your laptop, WiFi dongles, SDR , Bluetooth, IR, and anything else you think may help.

To score you will need to submit flags which will range from decoding transmissions in the spectrum, passphrases used to gain access to wireless access points, or even files located on servers. Once you capture the flag, submit it to the scoreboard right away, if you are confident it is worth *positive* points.  Some flags will be worth more points the earlier they are submitted, and others will be negative. Offense and defense are fully in play by the participants, the WCTF organizers, and the Conference itself. Play nice, and we might also play nice.
