"Operation Schmooze Hackers" DARPA, NSA, DoD Asking For Hackers Help


The Pentagon can't defend its own defense networks, what with them being "as porous as a colander," according to Richard Clarke. Clarke is the former White House counterterrorism chief who's turned into what Wired calls a cybersecurity Cassandra. Wired quoted Clarke as he addressed a packed ballroom at the first-ever DARPA Cyber Colloquium on Monday. At the conference, officials of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency pleaded with hackers to help them out and said that the agency plans to boost spending as it battles unnamed adversaries in cyberspace.
Regina Dugan, DARPA director, addressed an audience that comprised what the agency called "visionary hackers," academics and othersIn its unending effort to find more technologically innovative ways to accomplish things most of the government agencies that are its clients can't do at all, DARPA called a conference this week to ask for help security military and government networks against hackers. To solve a cyber-security problem the General Accountability Office reported had been so low on the Dept. of Defense's agenda during the past 21 years that the DoD had no coherent central policy, procedures or even identified leaders in the process of stopping the leak of information from its servers and those of its defense contractors. Did DARPA get the fresh ideas and offers of help it was hoping for when it put the colloquium together? Will the $208 million it is asking that Congress give it for cybersecurity research next year do any good?
Probably. You can't wave that much cheese around – while promising it will continue to grow – without getting a few rodents sniffing after it.
