What is M2M?

M2M is a multi-focus daylong hacking competition — capture the flag/jeopardy-style — that tests competitors’ cyber- and cyber-physical security skills in a variety of machine-to-machine challenges. M2M combines computer engineering and electrical engineering and offers challenges that require competitors to confront all aspects of modern security. Sign up as a team or individually to complete challenges of varying difficulties that require specialized knowledge of electrical engineering and computer engineering.

Last year's competition was intense with twelve teams competing for victory. This year, M2M is amping up the competition with more challenges, higher stakes, and upgraded infrastructure. Also, M2M 2019 is announcing two new additions:

M2M is expanding to include two challenger tiers: undergrad and open! The challenges of M2M 2019 will be met by 35 undergrad students and 35 open challengers, all competing together under separate prize brackets.

M2M 2019 High-School will be hosted on March 16th, where five high-schools will be invited to compete in a competition focused on educating students and introducing them to the excitement of engineering!
