2023 Embedded Capture the Flag (eCTF) Competition

The Embedded Capture the Flag (eCTF) is an embedded security competition run by MITRE in partnership with Riverside Research that puts participants through the experience of trying to create a secure system and then learning from their mistakes. The main target is a real physical embedded device, which opens the scope of the challenge to include physical/proximal access attacks.

Last Day to Register Before Kick-off is January 17, 2023

Team registration is now open for the 2023 eCTF. Students at all academic levels are welcome to participate. Team sizes are unlimited and must be sponsored by a faculty member. This form is only meant to be filled out by faculty advisors. Late registration closes on February 1, 2023.

Teams will design and implement a key fob system for a car door lock. The system must protect the car from unauthorized entry and prevent attacks like replays and key fob cloning.

The 2023 competition will run from January 18th through April 19th with an award ceremony on April 26th.
