The United States Naval Academy beat out the four other service academies in the annual Cyber Defense Exercise.
Sponsored by the National Security Agency, CDX challenges each academy team to design, build and configure a real-world computer network simulating a deployed joint service command. A 'red' team composed of NSA and Defense personnel then identifies the vulnerabilities and attempts to hack each network over a four-day period.
The United States Air Force Academy and the United States Military Academy tied as runners-up. Other participants were the United States Merchant Marine Academy, last year's winner, and the United States Coast Guard Academy.
