2020 Summer Program

Sometimes hiding information is a battle. Sometimes it is a game.

This is a game.

Learn the basics of ciphers, or codes: how they can hide secrets, and how those secrets can be revealed. Practice your hacking and decryption skills by tackling a series of challenges to uncover a conspiracy. Build your own Wadsworth cipher machine, and learn the basics of SSH to access remote servers. Then, work together to outsmart your peers. Join one of two teams to create your own codes, and to intercept and decipher the other's.
