CTF365 – Badges, Ranks and Updates
Though we haven’t started yet, we manage to make some important steps that we want to share with you CTF enthusiasts. Before we start to tell you about our steps, I want to introduce you to two new members of our CTF365 A-team:
Ross Simpson our lead developer whose skills, enthusiasm and commitment have proven to be crucial for our scoring system development and implementation. Great guy, a real doer and resourceful. You can follow him on Twitter Here .
Cezar Andrici our frontend developer. Though he is the youngest member, it looks like there are no obstacles to achieve his goals when it comes to coding. Because of him now we have ready to ship our new layout and badges system delivery. You can follow him on Twitter Here.
The scoring system is already done and will be implemented before starting Alpha. We decided to start small and in time to upgrade the scoring system. For now it will score XSSs and Defaces actions and soon SQLinjection Take Over and CC (command and control).
Though is only on dev stage, the new layout will show your achievements over CTF365 (skills), ranks and points included and all infosec important stuff.
Badges & Ranks
Information Security Certificates are important but your real skills are more important and as a security specialist you have to get continuous training. Badges were designed to prove your real skills and levels.
We divided into 7 levels/ranks for each proved skills. Bellow you have all the ranks for XSS (Cross Site Scripting) vulnerability. Depends on your numbers of XSS reported and approved, you’ll get a rank. For example Starter = 1 XSS vulnerability reported & approved, Hunter = 3 XSSs, Hacker = 5 XSSs, Commander = 9 XSSs, Pwner = 13 XSSs, Leet = 17 XSSs, Leet Haxor = 21+ XSSs.
Campaign refer to further different campaigns. For example if a security company or a security conference wants to use our CTF platform to create their own CTF.
This much about our CTF365 platform. Any questions? Glad to answer.
