DARPA is putting out a call for participation in their Cyber Grand Challenge. So far 35 teams have signed up. My prediction … fail. Any solution they create will work well against automated attacks … just not human ones. Or expect the definition of “autonomous” to mean something drastically different from what you think it means. Still, doesn’t hurt to try.
American secret squirrel military research outfit DARPA has launched a competition to find the autonomous cyber-defence systems of the future. More than 30 teams will participate in the Cyber Grand Challenge, which is described as a “first of its kind tournament” designed to kickstart the development of automated security defenders. The challenge comes a time when cyber-security is on the lips of pretty much everyone thanks to the GameoverZeuS trojan and Cryptolocker ransomware.
