C2Games.org - Ongoing all-level CTF events (Begins October 2021)

CAE Institutional Cyber hacking challenges


The National Centers of Academic Excellence (CAE) in Cybersecurity Community is composed of more than 300 institutions across five geographic regions, and the national competition program will follow this regional structure. Each region is led by a Regional Competition Coordinator, and the first competition cycle will have the capacity for up to 165 CAE institutions to participate.

As a member of the CAE community, University of Denver students have the opportunity to participate in these nationwide cyber security training events. They will be styled as Capture-the-Flag (CTF) type events, where you will be challenged to complete various “hacking” activities.

Please note that specific dates/times for the CTF challenges are not yet released, but please register today to ensure that you have a slot in the competitions!
