Over the Wire


Information Security Practices & Linux

I discovered Over The Wire a while back and have been working on their problems.

It's a online tool where we play a quasi capture the flag game.

We're tasked to find a password on a remote server. We SSH into a remote server and get a password which gives us access to the next server/level.

In each server the password/level becomes increasingly difficult to find and we learn concepts like linux, encryption, decryption, file compression, in detail.
