We're a student-run interest group at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign focused on information security. All are welcome! We have a strong focus on kind and collaborative learning.

We host weekly public meetings on low-barrier-of-entry security topics that are focused on collaborative learning and friendly environments. In addition, we coordinate weekly focus groups for more in-depth exploration in topics like embedded hacking, penetration testing, and fuzzing research.

SIGPwny is mentored by Kirill Levchenko and Joshua Mason. We work extensively with Michael Bailey's Network Security Research Group.
