Congratulations to the winners of the NolaCon 2016 OSINT CTF competition!

We had an outstanding showing with 41 participating teams working to identify 55 flags on 4 real human targets.

The winning teams:

  • “Dual Core Failing at Competing” took 1st place winning 3 Linux To Go USB boot drives, 3 NolaCon Black Badges, and $450 cash
  • “FyDuck” took 2nd place winning 3 Hak5 field kits and $300 cash
  • “TheThreeAmigos” edged out “HOW_I_OPSEC” to claim 3rd place winning 3 Camera equipped drones and $150 cash
  • “HOW_I_OPSEC” was so close to 3rd place, we had to extend honorable mention rewards including a Multi-profile To Go USB boot drive and a drone.
