The Defense Digital Service (DDS) and the HackerOne vulnerability coordination and bug bounty platform are holding the Hack the Army 3.0 bug bounty challenge, calling on military and civilian hackers to identify cybersecurity vulnerabilities in the U.S. Army's computer systems.

The invitation-only bug bounty program, runs from Jan. 6 to Feb. 17.

U.S. Army Cyber Command's Brigadier General Adam C. Volant said, "By crowdsourcing solutions with the help of the world's best military and civilian ethical hackers, we complement our existing security measures and provide an additional means to identify and fix vulnerabilities."

A financial reward may be given to civilian hackers who successfully discover valid security bugs.

The bug bounty program is DDS's 11th with HackerOne, and the third with the U.S. Army.
