Forensic Contest

We run computer security trainings and contests for high schools, colleges, and professionals. Our events can focus on any combination of network or host forensics, binary reverse engineering, incident response, network or systems administration, secure coding, rapid code prototyping, penetration testing, and much more.

Unlike most CTF exercises, our event does not typically have attack/defend roles. Instead, teams usually compete to solve problems quickly and move on to the next one. This is a result of the forensic nature of our primary event: Tracer FIRE.


If a Dirtbags event is coming to your area and you’d like to know more before committing, try our tutorials, or check the links on some of our past events.
