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.
Who did it invite?
Not, fortunately, the divisions of Chinese military hackers who have
been digitally marching one by one through military and government
installations with impunity for anywhere from five to ten years.
The Defense Advanced Research Agency (DARPA) called the "cyber
colloquium" to talk about the difficulty DARPA and the Pentagon have

"DARPA seeks the elite of the cyber communityâvisionary hackers,
academics and professionals from small and large businessesâto change
the dynamic of cyber defense," the invitation read.
