Capture The Flag
Capture-The-Flag (CTF) competitions are online-based and are filled with challenging problems related to computer security. Participants try to ‘hack’ problems. Every CTF is distinct from one another, but CTFs are usually categorized into 5 main spheres, notably: Cryptography, Forensics, Web Exploitation, Reverse Engineering, and Binary Exploitation. Challenges usually progress from 'Beginner' level to 'Advanced'. Entering CTFs helps you gain problem-solving skills, collaborative skills, and independent thinking-out-of-the-box skills.
