Project description

PicoCTF is a hacking contest designed to promote computer security and science to middle and high school students. PicoCTF 2013 had approximately 10,000 students.

This year we hope to introduce automatically generated problems for buffer overflows, format string attacks, return-oriented programming, and others. The main tasks will revolve around automatically generating problem instances at a variety of difficulty levels. Problems generated at the same difficulty level should be consistently difficult for participants. The framework should integrate into the overall PicoCTF game.
