Hello Cybersecurity UW!

Join us for a meeting with activities themed around hacking the Duo authentication system! It could be your first time using Duo if you are a freshman, but either way, we are very certain that you hate it! This week, we have prepared an event on learning how you can crack Duo. Here’s what we have planned!

• Learn how the backend of Duo works ⚙️

• Learn why you need Duo and the pros and cons ✔️❌

• Build your own Duo using TOTPs 🚀

Come and meet up with fellow cybersecurity enthusiasts and have fun! The meeting will be on Friday, October 12th, from 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm! The location is CS 1240, which is in the CS Building.

Thank you,
