Hackceler8

Hackceler8 is a game that combines CTF and speed running. It is based on regular CTF challenges like reverse engineering, shellcode, and cryptography, but there are intentionally available possibilities for cheating and abusing the mechanism.

To participate in the Google CTF challenges, hackers must form their own teams. Teams are ranked based on the points they earn through the challenges.

The top 8 teams in the Google CTF challenges will qualify for the Hackceler8 competition, which will be held in Tokyo later this year.

Google has also announced a prize pool of over $32,000 for this year’s competition. This is sure to attract many hackers to participate in the Google CTF challenges.

Resources for beginners

If you are a beginner and want to watch the previous competition, Google has provided a link to the 2022 highlight reel. Google has also provided resources for previous challenges and 2020 Hackceler8 videos, which may give you an idea of how the competition will be.

There are also several training links available for people interested in learning security. A Beginner’s quest is also scheduled to launch in August of this year.

The Google CTF 2023 is a great opportunity for ethical hackers and bug bounty hunters to test their skills and compete for prizes.
