Balsn is CTF team from Taiwan founded in 2016. Most of our current members are affiliated with Network Security Lab in National Taiwan University. We actively participate in online and onsite CTF competitions. You can browse our recently participated events and rankings on CTFtime. We also publish writeups on CTF challenges.
We are a group of cybersecurity enthusiasts interested in various areas including software security, binary analysis, web security, cryptography, IoT security, and etc. Besides our own research, all of us enjoy playing CTF because we believe it is an excellent chance to hone our skills in practice, catch up with the latest trend, and most importantly – compete and have fun!
In 2020 summer, Balsn attended DEFCON 28 CTF World Final online as a joint team HITCON⚔Balsn, collaborating with HITCON. We ranked in third place in this great competition.

sces60107 (a.k.a Shaman King) knows nothing about reverse engineering and binary exploit, but he knows how to get the flag. This guy specializes in mind-reading and guessing the flag.
Warning: He is a dangerous guy. Everything he touched will malfunction in a jiffy.
