Students at the Army’s cyber school and a Japanese defense force participated in what service leaders are describing as the first international “capture the flag” type event.

The international exercise, held Aug. 21, sought to improve the organizations’ relationship but also aimed to share best practices between key allies as a way to strengthen training and best practices. Teams from the Army’s cyber school and Japanese ground self defense force cyber students faced off.

Capture the flag events involve a set of challenges and objectives students have to meet with the tools at their exposure, which tests their knowledge and ability in areas like networking, for example.
