I have checked with pCTF organizers. This is going to a web-based CTF, no need to set up VPNs.

@TheHive

This is just another CTF (Capture The Flag) competitions & on the same line as with other CTFs which Team Reboot has already participated.

This may help shed some light for you

From my experience, most online competitions are offense based, meaning, your team is trying to capture flags instead of defending.

Not really.

You see, you will be given points for defense also, i.e. uptime for your service.

Thanks for the link. That sheds a lot of light into what it is.



In computer security, Capture the Flag (CTF) is a computer security wargame. Each team is given a machine (or small network) to defend on an isolated network. Teams are scored on both their success in defending their assigned machine and on their success in attacking other team's machines. Depending on the nature of the particular CTF game, teams may either be attempting to take an opponent's flag from their machine or teams may be attempting to plant their own flag on their opponent's machine. CTF was popularized by the hacker conference DEF CON. Currently, the DEF CON CTF competitions are run by Diutinus Defense Technologies Corp.
Contests are generally executed in a hotel ballroom or meeting room. A typical contest will have an area for each team playing, arranged around a central area reserved for the contest administrators. Projectors will display a scoreboard on the wall, which will be intermittently interrupted by witty or humorous video clips. Music is usually provided by a PA system during the contest.
CTF contests are usually designed to serve as an educational exercise to give participants experience in securing a machine, as well as conducting and reacting to the sort of attacks found in the real world. Reverse-engineering, network sniffing, protocol analysis, system administration, programming, and cryptanalysis are all skills which have been required by prior CTF contests at DEF CON.
CTF games often touch on many other aspects of information security, such as physical security, regulatory compliance, and software licensing. Successful teams generally have extensive industry experience and are capable of addressing these issues, even when raised by surprise in the middle of the contest.
An international, academic CTF was created by University of California, Santa Barbara in 2004. There have been six iCTF exercises since then, one per year. The 2009 edition occurred on December 4, 2009 and involved 56 teams—up from 39 in the previous year—from across the world, making it the largest live security competition ever performed.

The website you posted in the first post does not tell the visitor what its about or what the contest is about. They expect them to already know in advance what it is. They more info on the site.
