What is CyberFire Puzzles?
Created by the U.S. Department of Energy and Los Alamos National Laboratory, CyberFire Puzzles is a friendly competition that features a plethora of interesting mathematical and computer-science-based problems. You can expect to see sequence problems (think 1,5,9,d,...), number base conversion, network forensics, reverse engineering, and more. The problems in each category start at a beginner level but increase in difficulty as you learn from each problem.
Cyber Fire Puzzles offers a great opportunity to gain experience working on cyber security problems and looks good on your resume and to employers.
