Reading Group
Security and Privacy (SnP) lab has been dedicated to broadcasting cybersecurity knowledge to graduate and undergraduate students. We have been running cybersecurity reading group in Department of Computer Science since Fall 2017. We try to create a casual environment in which students can sit together and freely discuss the most recent results of cybersecurity. Our group members meet biweekly and benefit from a few aspects:
1) Be exposed to the most recent research results in cybersecurity;
2) Improve skills of presentation and paper reading;
3) Improve ability of critical thinking;
4) Have the opportunity to be involved into various state-of-the-art research projects in cybersecurity.
Please contact Bo Chen (bchen@mtu.edu) if you are interested in joining the group.

Competition
Security and Privacy (SnP) lab has been dedicated to promoting cybersecurity education and training among undergraduate and graduate students. We have been actively involved undergraduate and graduate students in various cybersecurity competitions. One of the competitions we have been involved in is National Cyber League (NCL) cyber competition. The NCL was founded in May 2011 to provide an ongoing virtual training ground for collegiate students to develop, practice, and validate their cybersecurity skills. It is a defensive and offensive puzzle-based, capture-the-flag style cybersecurity competition. Its virtual training ground helps high school and college students prepare and test themselves against cybersecurity challenges that they will likely face in the workforce. All participants play the games simultaneously during Preseason, Regular Season and Postseason.
Outcomes:
Spring 2018: Alex Larkin places 36th out of 3,350 students/players in NCL Spring 2018 regular season!
Fall 2017: Alex Larkin places 101 out of 3,449 students/players in NCL Fall 2017 regular season!
