Embedded Security Challenge
Blue Teams design a target system. Red Teams try to hack it.
A team of security experts from NYU Tandon School of Engineering competes with participating Universities using a red team/blue team approach to mimic real-world attacks. Contestants must exploit the weaknesses of a target system, assess the effectiveness of their hardware security techniques, identify vulnerabilities and implement effective defense mechanisms.
ESC is an educational, research-oriented tournament aimed at hacking into the hardware of embedded systems. In fact, it’s the oldest hardware security competition in the world. Finalists compete at CSAW online before a panel of judges carefully selected from security fields.
