A joint team consisting of students from Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH’s PLUS) and the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST’s KaisHack) and the undergraduate group (GON), ranked 4th at Plaid CTF (PCTF) 2018.

PCTF is an online CTF (Capture The Flag), which is an information security competition, operated by Carnegie Mellon University’s PPP, which is designed to challenge its participants to solve computer security problems and  to defend computer systems.

The joint team of KaisHack, PLUS, and GoN, which was formed for the first time for this tournament, is the first joint team assembled between KAIST and POSTECH’s hacking clubs, that, normally compete against each other during the hacking competition in the POSTECH-KAIST Science War.

The team’s organizational capacities were not brilliant, since it was hastily formed just prior to the competition. However, as the team was comprised of the best of the best from both schools, they were able to achieve notable success.

The team’s next goal is to achieve better results at the Defcon CTF, one of the oldest CTF, and one of the most prestigious CTF events in the world.
