We are a group dedicated to understanding, deconstructing, and ultimately breaking systems in order to advance computer and network security. Our goal is to create a space where Cornell students of all disciplines can gather to crack open complex networks, and create some of their own.
The most common definition of hacking is gaining unauthorized access to a computer. However, we prefer Paul Graham’s definition:
To programmers, “hacker” connotes mastery in the most literal sense: someone who can make a computer do what he wants—whether the computer wants to or not.
Our main focus is competing in global hacking competitions known as CTFs. We also work on hacking related software and hardware projects.
