Here is very interesting news coming from the Air Force of the United States, which allowed hackers to hack their one of the satellites above the orbit to look and find bugs. Hackers will be rewarded by them if they report any vulnerabilities.
US Air Force also invited hackers last year to get into an Air Force of the United States during the Def Con Security Conference, that was the first time hackers were invited by the Air Force. Shockingly enough, in only two days, a group of seven hackers found plenty of vulnerabilities. Whenever utilized in an inappropriate submits a certifiable application, this would be a threat for everybody included, causing untold calamitous harm.
That is the only reason for which hackers invited by the United States Air Force to check how whether there is any loophole.
Will Roper, assistant secretary of the Air Force for acquisition, technology, and logistics, had this to say: “I left that event thinking there is a huge national asset in this level of cyber expertise that we are lacking in full in our Air Force.”
Roper is accountable for all the satellites that the Air Force assembles falls under his lap. Verifiably, the Air Force held security of its frameworks and innovation in supreme mystery, dreading reconnaissance just as damage from any danger. Roper didn’t consent to this and said it wanted to be “stuck in Cold War strategic policies.”
Roper says, “But in today’s world that’s not the best security posture. Just because you’re not telling the world about your vulnerabilities doesn’t mean you’re secure to go to war,”
Roper says, “We don’t know the ghosts that are in our systems that come from the supply chain and the companies that assemble those, and the fighters and satellites don’t either because they don’t know to ask for them,”
