What is the SECDAYSCTF ?
The SECDAYSCTF is a computer security competition designed to raise awareness, introduce the computer security community to computer science students, and identify promising talent in West Africa and especially in Senegal. Also, the people already working in this field will be able to come to confront the different tests.
Unlike other CTFs, the SECDAYSCTF is not confined to IT security. It goes beyond the borders by proposing tests around the comprehension / analysis of algorithms but also tests of programming (necessary for a good profile pentester or other in the very growing field of the computer security).
The main goal of the SECDAYSCTF is to sensitize computer science students or young engineers and allow them to consolidate or even increase their interest in computer security.
