Our popular Open Source INTelligence (OSINT) Capture The Flag (CTF) contest is played at security conferences across the country. Unlike most CTFs, our targets are real (people), the flags are real (information), and it doesn’t take a PhD in cryptography to win! Find a partner and show everyone your Internet stalking skills in this one-of-a-kind CTF. Cool prizes are awarded for the top 3 teams. You could also win prizes just for competing!


The Nitty Gritty

  • Competitors work in teams of TWO: Find your hacking lobster.


  • What you need to compete: Contestants must bring a laptop computer with the ability to connect to WIRED internet (RJ45) and an ethernet cable. It’s also recommended that you bring a power adapter, as the CTF runs for 4 hours.


  • PRE-REGISTRATION is recommended in order to compete: The OSINT CTF takes place on Day 1 of the conference and space is limited.


  • The top three teams will be invited to participate in a panel discussion on Day Two of the conference: Let us get a look inside the hacker head!
