Capture The Flag

Thanks to the team at Depth Security for designing and hosting the CTF again this year!



BsidesKC will be holding the second annual MUD CTF competition again this year! The CTF challenge layout will be presented in the form of a nostalgic MUD (Multi-User Dungeon) platform created specifically for the event. Contestants will move throughout the world, finding challenges to complete, flags to submit and secrets to uncover. Players will be able to form groups and work together, or work on their own. The scoreboard will be in the form of an in-game leaderboard.

Challenge Categories

The CTF will have various categories of challenges. You'll have a mix of the following: Web, Forensics, Reverse Engineering, Crypto, Programming and Miscellaneous.

Challenge difficulty

We want everyone playing to be able to progress throughout the world and see all it has to offer. Even if you aren't an expert in the above topics, you will be able to solve most of the challenges with some research.


Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three teams.
