red team competition
The Red Team Competition is designed for high-school students and occurs over two rounds, with an online Qualifying Round in September and in-person Final round in November.
The Qualification Round runs as a jeopardy-style CTF. Challenges are designed to encourage learning and skill-building in the areas of reversing, web security, forensics, crypto, and pwning.
The format for RED Finals in November is still being explored. Typically, teams compete in-person and are tasked with investigating and unraveling a conspiracy using techniques from the Qualification Round, as well as their own sleuthing skills. With the need for events to be held virtually this year, RED Finals is being modified to fit this new format.
