My first Capture the Flag

I participated in my first CTF at Bsides Raleigh last week. I had an awesome time and placed 4th out of 23 teams despite losing more than half of the competition time while watching conference presentations, and competing solo. I was really surprised to receive a prize for 4th place. I got a Software Defined Radio (SDR) USB device. I jokingly said that they must have felt sorry for the old guy competing in his first CTF and dug a prize out of their personal stash. 🙂
