Welcome to pwn.college!
pwn.college is a first-stage education platform for students (and other interested parties) to learn about, and practice, core cybersecurity concepts in a hands-on fashion. It is designed to take a “white belt” in cybersecurity to becoming a “blue belt”, able to approach (simple) CTFs and wargames. The philosophy of pwn.college is “practice makes perfect”.
pwn.college was created by Zardus (Yan Shoshitaishvili) and kanak (Connor Nelson) at Arizona State University. It powers ASU’s Computer Systems Security course, CSE466, and is now open, for free, to participation for interested people around the world!
pwn.college is hosted across a number of internet services:
- LECTURES: We record our lectures on YouTube (for those that prefer offline versions, they are available on Dropbox).
- OFFICE HOURS: We stream our classes on Twitch during the fall semester, along with office hours and prerecorded lecture streams.
- CHALLENGES: We host practice problems on our infrastructure.
- DISCORD: We collaborate on discord! NOTE: if you are enrolled in ASU CSE466, please use the private link to join the discord so that you get assigned to the correct role!
- OPEN SOURCE: We host our open source stuff on GitHub.
