CASSA Red vs Blue – Halo CE LAN



You ever wonder why we’re here?

It’s one of life’s great mysteries, isn’t it? Why are we here? I mean, are we the product of social programming and parental expectation, or do we really have free will? And we’re here because we want to be? You know, so we get degrees and stuff. I don’t know man. But it keeps me up at night.

… What? …. Why are you here, on this page?

Locksport Workshop this Friday.

Pin-tumbler locks are the most common form of physical security that we encounter in of daily lives. Most of us lock our front doors without further thought to the security of our homes. CASSA aims to change the misplaced sense of safety and security that too many of us place in common door locks, because it is only by understanding a problem can we begin to find solutions.

Our Lock Sport Workshops are aimed at introducing students to the concept of lockpicking and teaching students how to open common tin-tumbler locks without a valid key and without damaging the lock. Learning to open a lock without the key is sure to change your perception of home security forever.

The workshop includes a brief presentation on the theory of how pin/tumbler locks work, basic vulnerabilities and how to exploit these vulnerabilities. The rest of the workshop will be practical and CASSA will be loaning out their lockpick sets for the duration of this event.

Where: JO 18.418

When: Friday 11th March 2016

ECU SCSS Teams for the Cyber Challenge Australia 2015

Two teams from the Edith Cowan University School of Computer and Security Science entered the Cyber Challenge Australia (CySCA) ethical hacking competition this year. Our teams placed 9th and 10th nationally, and one of our teams won prizes for coming first in completion of the forensics category.

This could not have been possible without the help of a few awesome organisations:

The Edith Cowan University Security Research Institute

The Edith Cowan University Security Research Institute allowed us to use their state-of-the-art Cyber Security Laboratories throughout training and for the final competition, and also provided us with training given by their staff.

The School of Computer and Security Science

The School of Computer and Security Science provided us with snacks and drinks throughout the final competition and also provided us with training given by their staff.


Our friends at Pickpals shouted us dinner for the competition evening!

The ECU Student Guild and CASSA

These folks helped pay for food to keep us sustained in the weeks leading up to the competition.

We deeply thank you for all your support!!

Are you an organisation who wishes to sponsor our team for 2016? Are you an ECU student interested in participating in CySCA 2016? Send us an email!
