* Note: This meeting requires you to bring in your laptop for the CTF and training *

Join us for an OWASP Mini Capture The Flag (CTF). Bring your laptops and enjoy pizza and refreshments on Us while you try to beat and break the challenges we've created. Some of these challenges have been crafted by us, a few of them have been crafted and donated by the Facebook Security Team (who will be hosting the CTF in May).

Cyberhive has generously allowed us to host the CTF in their space downtown and HP and National University has generously offered sponsorship. Parking shouldn't be a problem, there is a free parking garage below and there is street parking where the meters stop at 6pm all around cyberhive.

These challenges will be web application and web related challenges. The CTF will run from 6pm-10:30pm, the welcome and instructions will be given at 6pm and teams will be formed by 615pm, so don't be late. Once the competition starts, each team will have until 10pm to solve as many challenges as possible. The winners and prizes will be announced by 1030pm.

Solve as many challenges as you can. Come as a team or as an individual. Any individuals will be added to teams once they arrive. If you've never competing in a CTF before, this is a mini CTF, filled with a lot of hints. So come to learn, come to have fun. I hope to see you there. Please spread the word! There will be prizes.

The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP.ORG) is a non-profit community devoted to improving focus on application security. OWASP continues to grow and deliver exceptional resources to security conscious individuals who are required to make informed decisions about true application security risks. A plethora of funded open-source products, new coding principals that have been adopted by PCI standards, and a unique list of involved security professionals make OWASP an invaluable forum to attend.
