About ECSC2017

Contestants are challenged in solving security related tasks from domains such as web security, mobile security, HW, RF and IoT security, crypto puzzles, reverse engineering and forensics while the scoring depend on the ability to resolve them as soon as they can.

Teams are also challenged to make a pitch to all the audience and the jury in the conference room with more than 500 attendees trying to explain one of the challenges being solved as we also need cybersecurity professionals with soft skills and the ability to communicate.
