CSE Open House, K-12 Students, and SSL Certs

The UW CSE Security Lab participated in today’s CSE Open House, for visiting K-12 students. The lab’s hosted activity: a sequence of cryptographic puzzles. Check out the puzzles here. And what did the students get, if they solved the puzzles? An SSL (Super Smart Learner) certificate. A big thank you to Anna Kornfeld Simpson, Adam Lerner, Lucy Simko, Eric Zeng, Camille Cobb, and Alex Takakuwa for preparing the puzzles and the SSL certificates.
