The US military is starting an experimental competition called Hack the Pentagon, with the aim of strengthening the Department of Defense’s websites and systems.

“Hack the Pentagon is modeled after similar competitions known as “bug bounties” conducted by many large U.S. companies to discover security gaps in their networks,” stated Reuters.

The project is due to begin in April, according to the report, with the rules and rewards yet to be announced.

The initiative is being led by the Pentagon’s Defense Digital Service, said Reuters.
