    SPACE SECURITY CHALLENGE 2020 HACK-A-SAT

    The democratization of space has opened up a new frontier for exploration and innovation. But with this opportunity, new cybersecurity vulnerabilities are also being created. One human can design, build and launch a satellite, adhering to very few standards and security protocols. So how can we achieve safe, reliable and trustworthy operations to truly realize the promise of space?
    ...BY HACKING A SATELLITE.

    WAIT...WHAT?

    The United States Air Force, in conjunction with the Defense Digital Service, presents this year’s Space Security Challenge, Hack-A-Sat. This challenge asks hackers from around the world to focus their skills and creativity on solving cybersecurity challenges on space systems.
    CAPTURE THE FLAG, MEET SATELLITE

    Pull together a team for our Hack-A-Sat Capture The Flag. Participants who successfully complete a set of qualification challenges on cybersecurity and space this spring will be invited to the ultimate challenge: to (ethically) hack a satellite.

    The RULES:

    ELIGIBILITY
    The Space Security Challenge’s 2020 Hack-A-Sat (HAS) Capture the Flag event is open to all individuals, nationalities, ages, academic institutions and business entities, subject to the caveats below.
    • An entrant may be an individual competing alone or a team representing an academic institution, business or group of individuals. Each entrant must include at least one U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
    • Entrants may enter under an official affiliation (e.g., a university or corporation). Entrants may also have an official set of sponsors. Only one application per team should be submitted.
    • For each team, a single individual must be identified as the team leader. This person will serve as the official administrative point of contact for communications with the HAS staff.
    • Teams are to be wholly separate entities that do not share members or financial interests.
    • Individuals cannot be members of multiple teams.
    • Teams may have one or more sponsors.
    • Teams may not collaborate or share their technical approaches and solutions with other teams.
    • An entrant may use federal facilities or consult with federal employees ONLY if the facilities and employees are made available to all individuals and entities participating in the competition on an equitable basis.
    • All participants under 18 years of age require the authorization of a parent or guardian.
    THE FOLLOWING INDIVIDUALS AND ORGANIZATIONS ARE NOT ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN HAS EVENTS
    • Individual, organization or sponsor that is named in the Specially Designated Nationals List of the U.S. Department of Treasury.
    • Federal entities (from the U.S. or any other country) are not eligible to participate as entrants, sponsors or official affiliates. Federal employees acting within the scope of their employment are not eligible to participate as entrants, entrant officials, team leaders or team members.
    • A Federal Government Military or Civilian employee may be eligible to participate if done so in their personal capacity and if the work performed for the HAS is NOT related to their official government duties. Federal Government employees should first consult their designated agency ethics official before participating in the Challenge.
    • Persons or entities that received funds for supporting or advising the HAS are not eligible to participate.
    • Registration information collected by the Air Force will be used solely for the purpose of administering the event.
    • Registration information will not be distributed to any parties outside of the Department of Defense, nor released for any other purpose except as noted in this document.
    • The Air Force reserves the right to disqualify a participant whose actions are deemed to violate the spirit of the competition for any reason, including but not limited to the violation of relevant laws or regulations in the course of participation in the Challenge.
