Hackfest is an annual cybersecurity event initally hosted by the Higher School of Communication (SUP'COM). Since 2015, it has brought together cybersecurity experts, businesses, and students under one roof. After huge success in previous editions, Hackfest is back for its 7th edition this year at Technopark El Gazala. This year is noteworthy since Hackfest will be contested in two stages: qualifiers on June 10th and finals on June 23rd.
The CTF consists of two phases: a qualification round and a final round. During the qualification round, contestants will compete individually to win a slot for the final round. Only 80 contestants will qualify for the finals. The final round is a multi-team hacking challenge in which teams compete independently to win prizes
The National Cybersecurity CTF Competition is meant for both beginners and experienced contestants, and it consists of tasks ranging from simple to extremely difficult in various categories:
Team size is limited to 4
Bring your own laptop! We also recommend you come with a smartphone and multi-sockets
Bring your favorite software (disassemblers, development tools, hexadecimal viewers, virtual machines, kali etc)
Challenges will be accessible via wifi. Make sure you can access wifi on your laptop.
The CTF Qualification Round is an online event lasting 12 hours, where registered players compete to solve challenges across various categories. Top 60 contestants proceed to the Final Round.
The CTF Final Round is a 12-hour on-site competition where selected contestants compete in teams. Held overnight, the competition fosters a distraction-free environment for hackers to focus and collaborate.
