On August 4, in Las Vegas, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) will host the world’s first, all-machine hacking tournament. This Cyber Grand Challenge will mark the culmination of an ambitious three-year effort to develop advanced, autonomous systems that can to detect, evaluate, and patch software vulnerabilities before adversaries have a chance to exploit them.

The microelectronics community is facing an array of long foreseen obstacles to Moore’s Law, the transistor scaling that has allowed for 50 years of rapid progress in electronics. Current economic, geopolitical, and physics-based complications make the future of the electronics industry uniquely interesting at this moment. To jump-start innovation in the field, DARPA announced in June 2017 that it would coalesce a broad series of programs into the Electronics Resurgence Initiative (ERI).

DARPA will hold the world’s first all-computer Capture the Flag tournament live on stage (co-located with the DEF CON conference in Las Vegas) where automated systems may take the first steps toward a defensible, connected future. Seven teams from across the United States qualified to compete in the Final Event. For more information, please visit: http://archive.darpa.mil/cybergrandchallenge/.

Real cyber battles require both offense and defense. The CyberStakes CTF was a team-based full-spectrum, attack/defense Capture the Flag (CTF) competition. Each team was given identical software to defend while simultaneously attacking other teams. Points were awarded for successfully attacking other competitors while simultaneously defending their own infrastructure. This event was in the spirit of the annual DEF CON CTF competition, where most attacks revolve around exploitation and defense of traditional software binaries.
