For the first time, IIT students from India are among seven teams to have sailed through to the finals of the oldest and largest hardware hacking competition in the world.
They have won finalist slots in the ninth annual Embedded Security Challenge (ESC), a competition deemed to be one of the most difficult events at New York University Tandon School of Engineering's ongoing annual Cyber Security Awareness Week Games for students.
The preliminary event required teams to design their own vulnerable computer programs, show how to exploit those vulnerabilities, and offer hardware defensive techniques to prevent such attacks.
