    On the subject of hacking into ship's systems, this weekend the USN is sponsoring a hackathon in Boston.  Ironically, the kickoff is aboard USS Constitution, probably the least hackable ship in the USN.

    On behalf of the Naval Postgraduate School Center for Cyber Warfare and the Naval Sea Systems Command Chief Engineer, we are excited to have you join us at the U.S. Navy's premiere digital experience for Building a Community of Practice in Maritime Security.

    This is not just another hackathon. This is the Blue Angels for geeks! Sure there are contests on challenging problems, but HACKtheMACHINE is really about inspiring an innovation generation, and assuring our citizens that despite an ever-growing list of cyber crimes reported in the media the U.S. Navy is on call and ready to execute cyber warfare in defense of our nation and our allies.  

    We are inviting everyone to get a hands on experience in maritime cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality team building. So come join us in Boston aboard USS CONSTITUTION for HACKtheMACHINE and get a first hand introduction to the Navy's digital challenges.  Then team up to compete for two days at MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab.

    Maritime capture the flag

    We've all seen computers, phones, and cars hacked - Do you have what it takes to hack a ship? We have built the world's first maritime electronic test bed (TRUDI) for conducting cybersecurity research. Join us for an exclusive game of maritime capture the flag and show off your skills.

    It's my understanding that the Navy stated outright that these incidents were not the result of hacking.
