Pentagaon challenges hackers

the-pentagonIN an attempt to test its cyber security network’s ability to withstand the onslaught of hackers, the US defence establishment has thrown a gauntlet: “Hack or website”.

It invited outside hackers who have been vetted to test the cyber security of some public U.S. Defense Department websites as part of a pilot project next month, the first such program ever by the federal government.

“Hack the Pentagon” is modeled after similar competitions known as “bug bounties” conducted by many large U.S. companies to discover security gaps in their networks.
