On August 7 at 12:00 Central European Time, the welcome challenge will be posted on this website. Once you get the flag of the initial challenge, you may be able to register. The first 500 participants will get the Anduino board with two CAN ports free-of-charge. The main RHme3 challenge starts November 1, 2017. The participants are provided with challenges that simulate real-life scenarios relevant to automotive cyber security: a group of challenges co-developed by Argus and Riscure utilizes CAN protocol. The core of the provided board is an Atmel Xmega processor that has four times the more memory and is twice as fast than the previous RHme boards. The RHme3 board also has a crypto-hardware accelerator.
