The NCC Group Cryptography Services Prize: $500 (US).


The first-place winner will get to pick whichever prize they want and the remaining prize goes to the second-place winner. Deciding who wins this year is our returning volunteer judge and world-class cryptographer Jean-Philippe Aumasson of Kudelski Security. Along with all of the submissions we get from you, great judging is part of what makes this contest work, and we’d like to really thank JP for making this year’s contest possible.

Best of luck on your entries! Remember that they’re due on July 1st.
