Join us for the Trace Labs OSINT CTF for Missing Persons Challenge!
Each day we will present 8 real missing persons for you to track and submit Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) into our CTF platform.
Prizes awarded at the end of the day include licenses for Hunchly, the software every OSINT operator needs, and a variety of Trace Labs swag items!
This is a fantastic opportunity to get into the OSINT community, learn intelligence gathering, and to become a hero. Get your team together or work individually and join us at the Trace Labs table in the contest area to get started.
How is the Missing CTF Different from Other CTFs?
In the information security community, a typical CTF will be of a technical nature where “flags” are hidden within pre-configured servers/virtual machines that contestants have to obtain using hacking techniques to gain points. The Missing CTF differs from this by having different OSINT flag categories based off pieces of information that law enforcement would look to gather to aid in a missing persons investigation.
What is Trace Labs?
Trace Labs is a non-profit organization whose mission is to crowdsource the collection of Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) to generate new leads on active missing persons investigations.
