Hack On Hackers Educational Game

Technology Usability Lab In Privacy and Security

Card game where each player must manage a personal computer which hosts services (make money) and defend their network (costs money). Players then try and take down rivals by playing well known attacks against them, and they defend by correctly identifing how to prevent the attack. The game is intended for students who are currently taking a computer security course and want a good way to review common computer security material in a fun way.



The game was developed by Yini Huang as part of her 2017 Masters project at the University of Edinburgh's School of Informatics. The project was supervised as part of the Technology Usability Lab in Privacy and Security.
