[PLUG] An Invitation to Break In, a jeopardy-style capture the flag contest

Hello everyone!

Felicity, the annual festival of IIIT Hyderabad, brings to you Felicity Threads 2014, the tenth annual edition of the celebration of spirit of computing and engineering. We bring to you a wide range of online contests in various fields of programming and mathematics. Our series of online events includes contests on algorithmic programming (Codecraft), parallel programming (Kernel Cruise), combinatorial search and game playing bot design (Strange Loop), and an unconventional programming challenge (Time Limit Exceeded).

Our second event, after Gordian Knot, a math contest, is Break In.

Break In, is a Jeopardy-style Capture The Flag (CTF) contest, starting on 1800 IST (1230 UTC), January 11, Saturday for 36 hours. It will be filled with challenges from diverse areas of systems programming and security (description here). Participants will have to crawl the depths of the web, pry open encrypted exchanges and reverse engineer binaries to finally emerge victorious.

The only prerequisite to participate is the urge to learn. Let us learn and rejoice the spirit of computing and engineering together.

There are exciting prizes for the event too!

So be prepared for some and to know more about Threads, visit us at :
