Hack@DAC 2021


Hack@DAC is a Hardware Security challenge contest, co-located with the DAC conference, for finding and exploiting security-critical vulnerabilities in hardware and firmware. In this competition, participants compete to identify the security vulnerabilities, implement the related exploits, propose mitigation techniques or patches, and report them. The participants are encouraged to use any tools and techniques with a focus on theory, tooling, and automation. Hack@DAC has been successfully running since 2018 with several hundred contestants from academia and industry.
