This is a simple CTF site.
The challenges here are not designed to test your hacking skills, they are designed to test basic networking knowledge.
A proper Internet connection, and reasonable knowledge of networking, DNS and HTTP are all that's required.
If you only have a partial or broken internet connection, you may have trouble completing some of these.
All flags on this CTF are in the form of a SHA512 hash value, they will look something like this:
All of them will be exactly 128 characters long.
Only the following address ranges are in scope:
Anything outside of these ranges is out of scope and should not be touched.
If you have the answers, submit them to ctf [at] ev6 [dot] net
You get one point for a correct answer, and one extra point for explaining the challenge.
The point is not for these challenges to be difficult, in fact they are all very simple and depending on where you try from you may get some of the flags with no effort whatsoever - the main goal here is to understand how each challenge works.
If you're stuck, you can contact the same email address for hints or a walkthrough - ctf [at] ev6 [dot] net
There is now a hints page located at hints.html
