Can you exploit Web servers, manipulate database systems and crack sensitive password hashes? Hack a simulated system and win our annual cyber competition.

The National Security Agency (NSA) invites you to try out for the 2015 NSA CyberSprint, a challenge that pits your skills against other students and recent grads across the country. Register now!

Here’s how it works:

   • Phase 1 Qualifying Round: Complete a series of challenges to prove that you have what it takes to compete with the best. You have five days to complete the assessment, starting Oct. 28.
   • Phase 2 Final Skills Challenge: If you make it through the first phase, you’ll be invited to the big game, a simulation that asks you to hack a major system to retrieve data. You have two weeks, starting Nov. 9.

Registration is limited so reserve your spot today.

Top finishers in both phases will receive recognition for their efforts, and the best of the best will have the option to apply for a position at the National Security Agency*. And that’s when things get really interesting …

As the federal agency charged with foreign signals intelligence and information assurance, NSA is home to the nation’s most advanced technical professionals. Show us your very best work, and you may earn a place among them.
