[d0x3d] is a game designed for informal computer security education, reflecting the following goals:
- Engage new audiences, especially groups under-represented in computer science
- Be used both in and out of the classroom
- Be accessible to schools without technology funds or computer access
- Reinforce analyticsl-thinking and problem solving
- Improve security literacy, while increasing awareness of security careers and technology
- Inspire "adversarial thinking" and security role-playing
- Challenge assumptions that are barriers to CS, in particular: the field is not anti-social or isolating, there is no steep or disqualifying learning curve, there are no signnificant equipment costs.
