Welcome to our Weekly CTF Contest!

CTF Description: 

WiFi networks have become ubiquitous. The joy of staying connected without wires has pushed the industry to improve the throughput of WiFi networks to give wired networks tough competition. Hence, understanding WiFi security and being able to audit a WiFi network is a critical skill all security professionals should possess. 

We have used our emulated WiFi labs to create an environment with different kinds of WiFi networks and clients. The player will be provided CLI access to a Kali Linux machine with three monitor mode capable WiFi cards. We have hidden ten flags in the environment.


Collect all 10 FLAGs!




  • Click on RUN to start the lab (takes approximately 60s).

  • Click on LAB LINK to get command line (CLI) access to the attacker Kali machine.

  • There are three WiFi cards attached to this machine. All wordlists/dictionaries are present in the /root/wordlists directory.

  • FLAG1 is BSSID of the home network of a person who works for Aegis Consulting. Hint: Look for a client with MAC 02:00:00:00:08:00.

  • FLAG2 is present on a WiFi access point's HTTP interface

  • FLAG3 is the WEP key for a WiFi network operating in the vicinity.

  • FLAG4: A WiFi client is looking for a WPA-PSK network. This network's SSID is one of the most popular 100 SSID. The FLAG4 is the secret passphrase for this network is the flag?

  • Flag 5 is being transmitted in data packets of a very funnily named WPA2-PSK network. The SSID name is based on a very famous fiction movie series. The secret passphrase of this network is:  FLAG4 | queen | XXX  where X is a number from 0-9 and | is the concatenation symbol. 

  • FLAG6:  A WiFi client is looking for an EAP-PAP network.  This network's SSID is one of the most popular 100 SSID.  The FLAG6 is the password saved by the device for this network is the flag.

  • Flag 7 is hosted on a webserver of Zora Corporation. However, be aware Zora Corporation has mandated very strong passwords for WiFi access.

  • Flag 8 is hosted on an FTP of ABCorp. The SSID name of ABCorp is CorporateNetwork.

  • Flag 9 is hosted on a webserver of ABCorp.

  • Flag 10 is stored in a Memcached server of ZenithCorporation. The client trying to connect to this network has the wrong credential pair. But, the password it is using, is correct for one of the most common usernames on enterprise WiFi networks.

  • The eaphammer tool should only be executed from its own directory (i.e. invoke ./eaphammer from /root/eaphammer) to avoid issues


  • Collect all 10 FLAGs

  • Once you verify the flags, email with a short report on the process and the email you used to register on this website.

Technical Support for this Lab:

There is a reason we provide unlimited lab time: you can take as much time as you need to solve a lab. However, we realize that sometimes hints might be necessary to keep you motivated!

We currently provide technical support limited to:

  • Giving hints for a lab exercise
  • In rare circumstances, if you have totally given up (NO!!!) then tell you how to solve it. This will be limited to sharing the solution video or lab report
  • A lab exercise fails to load or has errors in it

If you need technical support, please email  clearly mention the name and link of the lab exercise and other essential details. The more descriptive you are, the faster we can help you. We will get back to you within 24 hours or less. 

For adminitrative queries, billing, enterprise accounts etc. please email
