Coming into InCTF 2012, we were quite inexperienced with the field of Computer Security as a whole, let alone CTFs. But the great variety and quality of questions as well as the friendly and helpful nature of the organizers, really made the event a great learning and fun experience!
Security can't be taught easily. CTF is one of the biggest platforms to teach and make people learn security. I Greatly appreciate the effort put forward by Amrita and bi0s for conducting Amrita INCTF. I strongly recommend InCTF to all the students and professionals who are planning to build a career in cybersecurity.
We used to think that Cyber security is nothing but just ethics about usage of computers. But then we got introduced to Amrita InCTF, which is when we realized that this is based on Cyber security and hacking. Thanks to this contest that we are now aware of and interested in Ethical hacking practices.
