Hacker Challenge

Posted by Xavier Ashe on September 4, 2007


We are a U.S. company performing security testing and security
metric research. The purpose of this challenge is to evaluate the
effectiveness of software protections. The results of this effort
will be used to improve our protection measures.

Contest Overview

There will be three distinct, yet related, phases to this contest. The first phase
will be a hacker challenge, for which anyone can register to participate.
The second stage of the contest will be a market (based on the Phase 1 challenge).
Participation in this second phase will be by invitation only, based on performance
in the first phase. The third phase of the contest will be a more challenging hacker
challenge; this phase may or may not be invitation-only. There are opportunities to
earn money in all three phases of the contest. Read on for more details.
All file downloads and uploads necessary for the contest will be possible after the
participant has logged in.
The market will also be visible, at the appropriate time, after logging in.

Get all the details on  Better hurry!  Phase one ends on September 10th.
