The MHMD hacking challenge

As envisaged in its project work plan, MHMD has outlined the execution of a public hackathon, open to ethical hackers from any age, provenance and expertise, to evaluate the overall security of the MHMD system infrastructure and identify its vulnerabilities.

Hackers will be invited to try to access the platform by breaking the system components, nodes and data security, and report results to the dedicated team at IEIIT-CNR (Institute of Electronics, Computer and Telecommunications Engineering, National Research Council of Italy, Genoa) and SBA Research (Vienna, Austria).


The hackathon will be launched on 1 July 2019 and will last two months, until 31 August 2019. A series of prizes will be awarded to the participants able to break into the system, for a total prize budget of 5,000 €, while proof of participation will be provided to all hackers sharing the output of their activities.
