In 2001, 2002, and 2003, NPS participated in the first three Inter-Service Academy Cyber-Defense Exercises (CDX). These exercises involved having students at several participating DoD schools (Blue Teams) build secure service networks that would be subsequently attacked by various DoD Information Warfare agencies (Red Teams). Since the exercises were competitively graded; a White Team (referee) was also employed, courtesy of Carnegie Mellon University’s SEI (Software Engineering Institute). The White Team’s role was to ensure a level playing field (i.e., like equipment and software) and compliance with exercise ROE (Rules of Engagement). NPS enjoyed great success in these three exercises, twice finishing as the highest scoring team.
