The iCTF is a security competition—a one-day, live hacking event that happens each December. It has evolved over the years from a dozen or so universities to nearly 70, with approximately 900 people playing at one time. This year differed slightly from previous years—IEEE Security & Privacy and Adobe offered cash prizes, and the competition featured different designs than in the past. Brian Pak is an undergrad student at Carnegie Mellon University and leader of the Plaid Parliament of Pwning, the team that won the 2010 International Capture the Flag Competition organized by Giovanni Vigna every year. Here, Giovanni Vigna talks with Brian about the competition.
