An attack-and-defend exercise for designing secure embedded systems.

Learn about the MITRE Embedded System CTF

Collegiate eCTF 2016


This pilot event puts competitors through the exercise of trying to create a secure system and then learning from their mistakes. The main target is a real physical embedded device, opening up the challenge to include physical/proximal access attacks. As a pilot competition, participation in this event is invitation only. We hope to open future competitions to all colleges and universities.
