Have you tried the challenges? They are as a good starting point as any.

That's what HTS is here for. Training the hacker underground. These challenges will stump you. But there are clues to research that will guide you in the right direction. You'll be hacking NASA in no time. :geek:

If you get stuck and need additional hints each challenge has it's own thread here in the forums. Since you are likely starting with the basic challenges HERE is the link. See the very first post for the official write up.

Makes me wonder if someone could hijack the communication network Curiosity uses. If someone took over the antenna in Goldstone to take over the Mars rover, I think it would be safe to say they were truly a "hacker".

Or move satellites in space :?

So, bridging the air-gap, inside knowledge of systems used and a lot of zero-days. Sounds like a job similar to Stuxnet.

Hellow533: I don't think you need to take over the antenna, 'just' reverse engineering the encryption used to send orders, any sufficiently powerful antenna will work and a clear sky. I wonder if it's possible to intercept the transmission (on Earth or via satellite), so one could study the signals being sent.

Also found a link, I wasn't surprised to find out people actually did hack satellites recently (meaning since the 80s). Though I guess doing the same to the Mars rover might be a bit harder. It isn't a question of whether or not it could be done, but more of how much energy one would like to spend on it.
