More research-based learning for software security at HTWG

One of Prof. Langweg’s proposals was selected to receive support from HTWG Konstanz in the „Research-Based Learning“ project.

As an enhancement to the lecture Software Security we will prepare for and take part in two Capture the flag (CTF) competitions. Preparation will be supported by a student assistant. The first competition will be offense/defense style, the second one will be task-based/jeopardy style. Participation in the competitions will act as a motivating factor to dig deeper in software security issues, and will encourage students to read on past vulnerabilities, exploits, fixes, and techniques.
