A DEFCON 24 Black Badge ctf, players compete against one another by exploiting off-the-shelf IoT devices. These 15+ devices all have known vulnerabilities, but to successfully exploit these devices requires lateral thinking, knowledge of networking, and competency in exploit development. CTFs are a great experience to learn more about security and test your skills, so join up in a team (or even by yourself) and compete for fun and prizes! Exploit as many as you can over the weekend and the top three teams will be rewarded.


The Zero-Day track is focused on the discovery and demonstration of new exploits (0-day vulnerabilities). This track relies on the judging of newly discovered attacks against embedded electronic devices. Devices that are eligible for the contest can be found here and you can start submitting entries now! The winners who score the highest on their judged entries will be rewarded with cash prizes.


We've had successful contests at DEFCON, DerbyCon, BSidesDC, ToorCon, HopeX and more. If you have a venue where a contest might be appropriate, let us know. We are planning a variety of formats and new challenges, and we are always open to suggestions.
