March 28, 2014Wang Wei
When it comes to Information Security, there's a great way to learn, train and keep sharp your skills. This can be done using gamification mechanics to speed up the learning curve and improve retention rate. Capture The Flag competitions use gamification mechanics and represent one of the best ways to learn security hands on. The Infosec team behind Capture The Flag platform  CTF365  has created a place for hackers to play weekend CTFs with great prizes, called  Hacker's Dome . In order to access the Hacker's Dome, you need is a registered and confirmed CTF365 account.  At Hacker's Dome CTF Platform users can deploy their own CTFs and can invite web developers, system administrators and security professionals to take hard challenges. Think RackSpace, of CTF Competitions. Hacker's Dome - First Blood:  First Blood is the first CTF and will start on May 17 2014 15:00 UTC and winners will win more than $6000 in prizes .

For years, the Capture the Flag platform has been a common and very popular part of the hacker convention scene.

The Hacker Conference partnered up with CTF365 to provide the best CTF experience during the conference. While trying to find out more about their product and also about their CTF surprise, I got an interview with Marius Corici Co-founder and CEO for CTF365. Q: November 2012 was when you first announced about this project which was supposed to start at the begin-ning of 2013. What happened that made you delay the starting date? A: Well, we’re definitely enthusiastic about making CTF365 the greatest CTF platform out there, and this proves to be much more difficult than initially anticipated. I won’t get into detail, because, as it happens, the story is like something pulled out from the theater of the absurd. If we would ever get a chance to make a making-of- CTF365 movie, I’m sure it would be amusing and tragic at the same time. What I will say [and repeat], is that we are putting our best efforts into making CTF365 work, we are a small and committed team, which is a problem [for

Prepare your tools, build your team, defend your country and conquer the World. It is well known that the best way to learn security is hands on. It's the kind of experience you earn in pentest labs or CTF competitions based on challenges or defensive and offensive security and it's aimed at improving your security skills. Every important Information Security conference has a CTF competition, the most prestigious universities host CTF competitions and major companies organize CTFs now and then. Just take a look at Stripe or Mozilla. CTF is everywhere and not just in the InfoSec Industry. The World is changing rapidly, and so is the InfoSec industry along with CTFs. It looks like CTF365 took this task seriously and they promise a brand new approach to CTF competitions that will change everything we know about those competitions. Is not a challenge nor scenario based game. They simply promise to build and internet within The Internet and replicate everything that ex
