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. Today, effective security requires comprehensive understanding of both software and hardware vulnerabilities. M2M combines computer engineering and electrical engineering and offers challenges that require competitors to confront all aspects of modern security. Competitors will work in teams to complete challenges of varying difficulties that require specialized knowledge of application security, network security, digital logic and circuits. Each student is responsible for bringing a laptop, preferably with a kali-Linux virtual machine. Teammates will have to work together to complete as many challenges as possible within an eight-hour period. There will be 12 teams with each team consisting of 4 members. Prizes for the event are as follows: 1st place will receive $500, 2nd will receive $400, and 3rd will receive $300. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
