A team of undergraduate students from Chiang Mai University’s Computer Engineering Department in the Faculty of Engineering took home a prize of 20,000 baht after competing in I-Secure CTF 2016 at E88 in Bangkok recently. 

The team members entered the qualifying round in July, 2016 with an online test in Web, Reverse Engineering, Digital Forensic, Programming, Cryptography, and other cyber security issues before being accepted for the final round in Bangkok.

Peeranat Tharnthalay, Pongsakorn Sommalai, and Thatchaphat Gasornsri competed against six teams to solve questions about cyber security under the concept of Capture the Flag (CTF), which is popular and widespread in competition of cyber security. Competitors could each choose a question in one field and score of each question would be different and depend on various factors consisting of easiness, difficulty and newness.
