Cicada 3301 is a name given to a mysterious organization that recruits from the public via a set of complex puzzles. The first Internet puzzle started on January 5, 2012 and ran for approximately one month. A second round began exactly one year later on January 5, 2013, and is possibly still ongoing. The stated intent was to recruit "intelligent individuals" by presenting a series of puzzles which were to be solved, each in order, to find the next. The puzzles focused heavily on data security, cryptography, and steganography.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cicada_3301http://theconversation.com/cicada-3301-the-mystery-keeping-cryptologists-awake-at-night-21407
