Do you like hacking and do you want to make Dutch education more cyber resilient? Join HALON: Hack AL het Onderwijs Nederland! Sign up for this first edition of HALON on June 28 at TU Delft.

HALON is the hacker event for education by education. During this first pilot edition you and your team are allowed to look for vulnerabilities in the open IP ranges of 4 Dutch universities and SURF. By finding vulnerabilities, you also contribute to the cyber resilience of these institutions. The organisation is in the hands of SURF, the IT cooperation for education and research.

For students and staff

HALON is intended for students and staff of institutions affiliated with SURF that know their way around IT systems. In addition students and staff at other research universities, universities of applied sciences (hbo) and vocational education and training (mbo) are also very welcome!
