The Institute of Technology Blanchardstown is delighted to be once again hosting ZeroDays CTF www.ZeroDays.ie, a cyber-security challenge on Friday April 7th, from 10am at the Generator, Smithfield, Dublin.

ZeroDays CTF is the largest cyber security challenge of its type in Ireland
Throughout the day, 52 teams with over 210 participants will use their own background and skillsets to solve technical challenges, all of which will have some link to the fun Super hero and villains theme, capturing points as they work their way through the puzzles and problems. Domain challenges will range from web application vulnerabilities, social engineering and exploitation to forensics, reverse engineering and cryptography, as well as a couple of treasure-hunts around the Smithfield area.
The Capture the Flag competition will run throughout the day and will be followed by a well-deserved after-party and networking event, featuring live bands and a DJ from 6pm.
