The team

The idea of setting up an Oxford CTF team was initially from David Korczynski, a DPhil student at the Department of Computer Science, and Ilias Giechaskiel, a DPhil student at the CDT in Cybersecurity.

After the first Inter-ACE competition in April 2016 there was a decent number of people interested, and the team name 'Ox002147' was agreed on (bonus points if you can figure out where it comes from).

In early 2017 the Competitive Computer Security club was set up as an official University society, to encourage more people to learn about CTFs and "real-world" security in general, and run training events and competitions more officially.
