CTF Difficulty Level:

The CTF is designed to take you on a roller coaster ride where each twist and turn presents a new challenge, keeping participants on their toes throughout the journey.

By immersing participants in this roller coaster ride of challenges, the CTF not only tests their technical abilities but also fosters creativity and resilience. It's an exhilarating journey that pushes participants to their limits and rewards them with valuable insights and experiences along the way.



There are a total of 17 flags.

All flags have the following format: flag{abc}



The first person to submit all the flags before the HackSpaceCon event will get a free seat for the Offensive Development or Advance Red Team Operation course at HackSpaceCon from White Knight Labs.

Additionally, the winner will also get Swag.



If you discover a bug that affects the competition, let us know instead of acting maliciously (deleting flags, breaking the challenge deliberately, etc).

Lastly, do not ask or share flags with others. Be a l33t hacker and capture the flags with your sk177z.

Dark Wolf Solutions 

Dark Wolf Solutions is hosting a Radio Frequency Capture the Flag (RFCTF) at HackSpaceCon 
Similar to the RFCTF at DEF CON, this CTF can be played completely virtually without any specialized equipment. A laptop with internet access is all that is required to login to your individual virtual machine through ssh or the web. A basic understanding of Linux and the wireless tools already installed on the player's virtual machine is enough to get you started. Most of the challenges will be centered on 802.11 wifi hacking techniques; sniff, crack, spoof, or tamper your way to a wifi flag. There will be a limited number of non-wifi radio challenges that will require additional software tools such as GNU RadioCompanion and or other radio software to decode. While the CTF is played over the internet, Dark Wolf will have assistants available on-site to help you register, connect, walk you through initial challenges or provide hints at our discretion. 
This RFCTF is based on the same code written by the Radio Frequency Hackers Sanctuary and run at events such as DEF CON and Shmoocon and used with their permission. Dark Wolf has prepared all the challenges presented to you at HackSpaceCon.

Adversary Village

Choose-your-own adversary adventure game! 

Adversary adventure is a story-scenario based, interactive, choose-your-own adventure model interactive game. This is a gamified version of table-top exercises which is presented to the participants as they can choose to play as an attacker, post exploitation OR a Defender who is defending against an attacker group-threat actor OR even play as a CISO who is dealing with an adversarial situation such as a ransomware incident. 

Adversary simulator hands-on booth 

Adversary Simulator booth will have hands-on adversary emulation plans specific to a wide variety of threat-actors and ransomware; these are meant to provide the participants/visitors with a better understanding of the adversary tactics. This is a volunteer assisted activity where anyone, both management executives and technical folks can come-in and experience different categories of simulation, emulation and purple scenarios. Adversary Simulator booth will be having a lab environment focused on
recreating enterprise infrastructure, aimed at emulating various adversaries. The booth visitors will be able to view, simulate and control various TTPs used by adversaries. The simulator is meant to be a learning experience, irrespective of whether one is hands-on with highly sophisticated attack tactics or from the management.

Hands-on short technical workshops 

The hands-on workshop has been created to provide the participants with a better understanding of adversary emulation engagements. The participants will be able to emulate various threat-actors and ransomware safely in a controlled, enterprise level environment, safely. All machines in the lab environment will be equipped with AV, Web proxy, EDR and other Defense systems. The workshop will have modules of TTPs and each attack vector used in the lab environment and step-by-step walk-through of the attack path. The workshop is intended to help the attendees to assess the defenses and evaluate the security controls deployed in their organization against motivated adversaries.

Build Cyber is a non profit cyber security education foundation that is built by a global hacking community of technical professionals with the mission of disrupting education by funding and developing the distribution of cyber security knowledge.

Our goal is to leverage resources, connections and experience to help train the future generations of diverse security professionals with free voucher certification programs, global mentoring networks and workforce development. Our only ask is that our students become a mentor to another. This in turn creates a recursive model of education without putting students into debt.


Build Cyber hosts free video education content, archives technical resources and connects users with one-on-one mentors and industry professionals. We strive to impact low income, veteran, neurodiverse and at-risk communities.

Our team believes in rolling up our sleeves and building the cyber community collectively. We are looking for security content creators, mentors, and technical professionals to leverage our platform, grow our influence and train 1000 people over the next 10 years. Do the math, 1000 students x $100k salary x 10 years = $100,000,000 in economic development.
