Overview

I did not set high expectations for myself when I took part in this CTF, as I wanted to have fun and attempt on some categories which I had never attempted before.

It lasted 2 days spanning over the weekend from 4 June to 6 June, which I felt was enough time for me to improve on my skills.

Through this CTF, it has given me a better understanding of some categories - mainly cryptography, as I managed to solve my first RSA challenge! The challenges also focused on networking category, and I did learn quite a lot about networking from this CTF.

Many thanks to Ying Keat for helping me out for some challenges, especially Web Exploitation and Reverse Engineering!
