The Twente Hacking Squad (THS) regularly participates in online Capture the Flag (CTF) competitions. Last weekend, students of University's team competed against 619 international teams in the RCTF competition. By solving challenges on the various topics, such as web, reverse engineering, exploitation, and cryptography, the THS ended in the overall competition as 31st.

Do you want to learn how to hack? Do you like to find flaws in computer programs and would like to learn how to exploit them? Always wanted to break improperly implemented cryptography? Then be sure to join the THS.

We have bi-weekly meetings at Wednesday evening and regularly participate in CTF events. Send an email to Tim van de Kamp or Riccardo Bortolameotti and we'll add you to our mailing list.

The Twente Hacking Squad (THS) is the Capture the Flag (CTF) team of the University of Twente. The team is supported by the Services, Cybersecurity and Safety (SCS) research group.
