Security researchers at Trail of Bits today introduced the CTF Field Guide (Capture the Flag), a freely available, self-guided online course designed to help university and high school students hone the skills needed to succeed in the fast-paced, offensive competitions known as Capture the Flag.
Capture the Flag events consist of many small challenges that require participants to exercise skills across the spectrum of computer security, from exploit creation and vulnerability discovery to forensics. Participation in such games is widely viewed as a critical step in building computer security expertise, especially for high school and college students considering a career in the field.
