Investigate security and resilience of critical infrastructures
During the hackathon, you will research the security and resilience of critical infrastructures and creatively visualize them. To this end, the University of Twente will make scientific data available from OpenINTEL - the largest DNS measurement in the world.
Combining datasets for greater insight
You can combine the data from OpenINTEL with data from other sources to gain more insights into vulnerabilities. During the hackathon, a number of other (closed) datasets will also be offered. In addition, you can involve other, public data sources during the hackathon. Data coaches from the University of Twente will be present on the day: researchers with a lot of experience in analysing and processing large data sets.
Cybersecurity specialists, researchers, scientists and students are welcome. Some knowledge/experience in Python, Jupyter notebooks and (relational) data structures is desirable. Experience with SQL, Apache Spark and plot libraries such as Matplotlib is a plus.

During the hackathon you will have access to sensitive data. We therefore ask you to sign a participant statement upon entry confirming that you will not download and/or copy and/or share this data with third parties.
Register as a team
- If you form a team with colleagues or fellow students, first appoint a team captain and come up with a team name. A team consists of a maximum of 5 participants, including the team captain.
- All team members register individually and mention the team name in the comments field. The team captain additionally states that he or she is the team captain, for example: team Twentse H@ckers (team captain)
- The other members register with just team Twentse H@ckers in the comments field. Please note that all team members also enter exactly the same team name.
- Registration is possible until 30 January
Don't have a team but still want to participate? Then register no later than 30 January and mention single player in the comments field. The organisation will then assign you to a team.
The Twente University Centre for Cybersecurity Research (TUCCR) will take care of the registration for this hackathon. You can register until 30 January.
The hackathon will take place at the Center for Security and Digitalization (CVD) in Apeldoorn.
NCSC winner Security and Privacy Award 2022
The National Cyber Security Center (NCSC) won the SURF Security and Privacy Award 2022. The NCSC received the award for the way it organized the provision of information around the serious Log4j vulnerability, which came to light in late 2021.
Award: this hackathon plus all the knowledge and insights gained
The award consists of this security hackathon organized by the University of Twente and SURF for the NCSC, plus all the new knowledge and insights about the international threat landscape gained from it.
