Irish Colleges Cyber-Security Challenge

Our flagship event, the Irish Colleges Cyber-Security Challenge, aims to showcase and identify the best cyber-security students in the country. The event caters for all levels from complete IT beginners to experienced professional penetration testers. The focus of the event is fun and inclusiveness and we encourage everyone to come and experience this unique, enjoyable and challenging event.

With over 50 unique challenges on the day, we have tasks and activities to keep teams of all abilities entertained. Teams have to solve security related tasks from domains such as web security, mobile security, RF and IoT security, cryptography, reverse engineering, forensics, puzzles, trivia and much more. So if you enjoy solving challenges, coding, security, IT or just having fun then Zero Days colleges CTF is for you.

Zero Days CTF was launched in 2015; a national cyber-security competition aimed at students, university graduates and ICT professionals. This event has a clear mission: to find new and young cyber talents and encourage young people to pursue a career in cyber-security. The success of our event can be seen in the ever-increasing number of participants: from 80 in 2015, to an estimated 300 expected for this year’s competition, making it not only Ireland’s premier CTF competition, but one of the largest on-site CTFs globally.
