Twente Hacking Squad

The Twente Hacking Squad (THS) is a team of UT students & PhD students interested in computer security. We meet every Monday from 19:00 to 21:00, during which we try to improve our hacking skills. In our meetings we occasionally give workshops where we share our hacking expertise with each other in various areas such as:

  • Cryptography
  • Forensics
  • General programming skills
  • Reverse engineering
  • Pwning
  • Web hacking
See the Workshop Schedule below for an overview of dates for each workshop. In other meetings, we solve challenges from old CTFs (capture the flag competitions) and related problems to get hands-on practice to improve our hacking skills. As a team, we also participate in these CTF events from time to time.
