CyberCTF – A Reusable French-German Capture The Flag Platform Including Demonstrational Cybersecurity Teaching Elements

During a recent visit to IMT Atlantique in Rennes, Mohammad Hamad from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) joined forces with the cybersecurity team to propel forward the CyberCTF project. This collaborative effort, facilitated by the occasion of Mohammad’s visit, marked a significant step in advancing the project’s objectives.

The CyberCTF project, titled “CyberCTF – A Reusable French-German Capture The Flag Platform Including Demonstrational Cybersecurity Teaching Elements,” is designed to revolutionize cybersecurity education by providing students with hands-on experience in a simulated environment. At the heart of this endeavor is the aim to enhance students’ understanding of cybersecurity principles and techniques while equipping them with practical skills essential for future careers in the industry.

Under the auspices of the German-French Academy for the Industry of the Future (GFA), this collaboration between IMT Atlantique and TUM has received vital support and funding. The project’s focus on real-world scenarios, including IoT and automotive systems, ensures its relevance and effectiveness in preparing students for the dynamic cybersecurity landscape.

Mohammad Hamad from TUM and Marc-Oliver Pahl from IMT Atlantique serve as the principal investigators (PI) for the CyberCTF project. Their leadership and expertise have been instrumental in guiding the project’s direction and fostering collaboration between the two institutions.

The meeting between Mohammad Hamad and the team at IMT Atlantique served as a catalyst for progress in the CyberCTF project. Leveraging Mohammad’s expertise from TUM’s Associate Professorship of Embedded Systems and Internet of Things, the project team made significant advancements in refining and expanding the CyberCTF platform.

Moreover, during Mohammad’s visit, fruitful discussions were held with the local Hacklantique organizers. These discussions explored potential collaboration opportunities in the future, aiming to further enhance cybersecurity education and engagement within the local community.

As the collaboration between IMT Atlantique and TUM continues to flourish, the CyberCTF project is poised for further innovation and development. Through ongoing collaboration and dedication, both institutions are committed to shaping the future of cybersecurity education and empowering the next generation of cyber defenders.

Stay tuned for more updates on the CyberCTF project as it continues to evolve and make strides in enhancing cybersecurity education.
