    Hey Guys,

    I’m starting my final year project soon for University

    One of the ideas I have thought of, is creating my own beginner CTF, similiar to the bandit level on OverTheWire

    I just want to know what’s the best way to go about this, and how can it be hosted?


    Thanks guys

    Abusing environment variables or setuid permissions are always fun for beginners. You could write a small vulnerable C program that does that.

    Hey, I did this at my university and we’re working on building more. We set up an OpenVPN server to get all participates VPN access. Then we made a small environment for each team consisting of about 5 VMs that we hosted in AWS.

    It worked really well! We didn’t handle scoring, but I heard that CTFd is really good for that.

    Good luck!

    Have you already checked out RootTheBox?

    If you have or if you end up trying it, I’d be curious to hear about your experience, as I haven’t used it personally yet

    Include some wire shark flags. It’s fairly simple to learn how to use very fun. No to mention being able to see the MAC address of every device in a network.. pretty cool IMO
