Hacking competitions, such as 'capture-the-flag' (CTF) games, are extreamly useful exercises to educate students the subjects of computer systems and security. iCTF and CSAW are two well-known examples for student participants. Of course they are just two out of many awesome CTF competitions (DEFCON, CODEGATE ...).

Professor Kang Li is the faculty advisor for the following ethical hacking teams that regularly compete in various CTF competitions.

  • Team disekt (a DARPA CGC finalist team)
  • Team SecDawgs (open to students at UGA)
Professor Kang Li was involved in the discovery of these vulnerabilities.
