Tokyo cyber security competition for young hackers

Young hackers from Japan and other countries showed their skills in final rounds of the Security Contest 2014, or SECCON in Tokyo.

The winners from 90 participants in 24 teams from seven nations: China, Japan, Poland, Russia, South Korea, Taiwan, and the United States will advance to the prestigious Def Con CTF (Capture the Flag) competition, slated for later this year, organisers said.

"There is a need for a forum where fledgling, young ... hackers can grow and gain understanding of their families, schools and the outside world," said Yoshinori Takesako, the head of the SECCON organising committee. "This is important in order to keep them away from being pulled into the underground world," he said in a statement to AFP.
