The DARPA stands for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), or in plain English, one of Fox Mulder’s most favorite non-secret government agencies. You dream about it, they make it. The most unimaginable and crazy weapons among other things.
However, this time the DARPA’s men in black have decided to borrow some of Defcon’s strategies. If you want to earn two million dollars in two days, here is what you have to do. You or your team have to come up with a software, which has mastered the skill of superior self defense.
The intention is more than clear with this one. No price is too big to pay for the state-of-the-art software, which can withstand the most sophisticated cyber attacks. In addition, the DARPA is aiming high with this one. How high you may ask? Let us put it in this more understandable way.
The perfect software according to DARPA’s rigorous criteria is supposed not only to successfully defend itself, but also to strike back with all the power of a cyber vengeance. This is a true win-win the busy little bees in the DARPA are trying to achieve with this challenging contest.
