JerseyCTF is a beginner-friendly Capture the Flag competition that aims to inspire interest in cybersecurity. Hosted by the NJIT ACM organization and NJIT SCI program, it is geared towards students, beginners, and professionals alike. JerseyCTF provides participants with jeopardy-style questions in categories including cryptography, forensics, binary exploitation/reversing, open-source intelligence, and web exploitation. JerseyCTF features a track parallel to the CTF competition, consisting of presentations and panels with renowned speakers from industry and government.
Students, beginners, and professionals are all welcome to compete as long as they are over the age of 18.
All you need is an Internet-connected device in order to compete. It is completely optional if you want to use ethical hacking/penetration testing Linux distributions like Kali or Parrot OS, but these may help you since there are many pre-installed tools. These distributions are open-source and can be deployed in VMware, VirtualBox, or any other virtualization software.
Yes! There are 2 leaderboard divisions: Student and Open. Prizes will be awarded in both divisions for top scoring teams and participants residing in the United States will receive a complimentary JerseyCTF t-shirt.
JerseyCTF had over 600 registrations in 2021, the first year of the competition. We are looking forward to welcoming more registrants and participants in 2022!
