FAUST CTF is an online attack-defense CTF competition run by FAUST, the CTF team of Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg. Its seventh edition will take place on 9 July 2022.


Once again, the competition will work in classic attack-defense fashion. Each team will be given a Vulnbox image to host itself and VPN access. You will run exploits against other teams, capture flags and submit them to our server.

The vulnbox decryption password will be released at 2022-07-09 12:00 UTC. The actual competition will start at 13:00 UTC and run for eight hours.


Thanks to our sponsors, we can again provide nice prize money:
  • First place: 1024 €
  • Second place: 512 €
  • Third place: 256 €

Additionally, for each service the first team to exploit it, submit a valid flag and provide a write-up will win 64 €.

Please check our rules page for information on payout restrictions.
