Would you like to put your hacking skills to the test and win some great prizes? Then register for the UVA-HVA Cyber Challenge 2022, and who knows, maybe you will soon be competing against other players from all over the Netherlands during the national SURF Capture the Flag in December.

What is the Cyber Challenge?

During the AUAS-UvA Cyber Challenge, a dedicated Capture the Flag event, you can learn new hacking techniques during challenging assignments. In these challenges, the aim is to collect as many well-hidden flags as possible, which earns you points. The player with the most points in the shortest possible time wins the challenge.

Why this Cyber Challenge?

The purpose of this event is to broaden knowledge and skills in cyber security and hacking, as well as to become aware of security vulnerabilities in general. The aim is also to build a community of people interested in the field of cyber security and hacking. You could become famous at the national level! The best participants (students and staff) of the AUAS-UvA Cyber Challenge 2022 can go on to represent the UvA and AUAS at the SURFnet CTF Challenge in December.

Participation - What do you need to participate?

  • A computer/laptop with a good internet connection.
  • A 'hacker pseudonym'.
  • Your interest and presence!


The AUAS-UVA Cyber Challenge will take place during the week of 14 November and can be done entirely online.
