Team Integrity

At no time during the conduct of the CTF can teams communicate with each other, share answers, provide hints, or in any way assist another CTF team with any of the CTF Challenges. Doing so would constitute an Integrity Violation and will result in your team being disqualified from the competition. Each individual team is expected to navigate each challenge with the knowledge and skills of the 4-team members registered on that team.
