Cybersecurity Computer Gaming

*** Special Note - to play our Amanita Whitehat online cybersecurity games - please open the game page on a computer or tablet with a keyboard. Thank you!

In early 2021, the NCF, supported by a grant from the Arundel Community Development Services, Inc., teamed with Anne Arundel Community College to sponsor a three-student intern team to develop, design, construct, and deliver an operational cybersecurity-themed game. The target audience for the game is K-12 with a focus on middle school. This project had numerous benefits for the intern team, including project management experience and leveraging their cybersecurity, networking, digital forensics, and computer science knowledge. The NCF is grateful to this impressive team for the fantastic work they did to make this important project a reality.

The game, first of a series of games, is based upon the "Outsmart Cyberthreats" booklet. The game is available to play on the NCF website (see link above) and via a kiosk at the National Cryptologic Museum.

The beta launch of the second game in the series - Amanita Whitehat 2: Mayhem at Mallory Middle - took place in early Spring 2023, and the final version is now available to play on our site. Click the link above to play the 2nd game.
