Pentagon invitation: Come hack our public Internet pages

The Pentagon is looking for a few good computer hackers.

Screened high-tech specialists will be brought in to try to breach the Defense Department’s public Internet pages in a pilot program aimed at finding and fixing cybersecurity vulnerabilities.

Officials often say that department systems get probed and attacked millions of times a day.

Defense officials laid out the broad outlines of the plan Wednesday. They had few details on how it will work, what Pentagon systems would be tested and how the hackers would be compensated.

The program called “Hack the Pentagon” will begin next month. Department officials will first have to work through a number of legal issues involving the authorization of individuals to breach active websites.
