Demystifying The Dark Web: Hackers To Compete At The Biggest Hackathon By Kerala Police Cyberdome

Kerala Police’s Cyberdome is all set to conduct its fifth hackathon this year. This edition of the hackathon comes with a unique goal, to support society in keeping them safe from Cybercriminals. It aims to provide a common platform for programmers, designers and inventors to come together to code, design and build solutions, for the Police and to effectively handle real-world threats.

Today’s cybercrime attacks are powered by computers, AI and algorithms, which means these attacks are constant and in volumes that are unrealistic to cybersecurity solutions. This year’s theme “demystifying the dark web” aims to provide solutions with technical force to fight back every bit of their presence. 

“The present digital world has undergone a total transformation changing the basic ethos of our living. The whole paradigm of policing has also changed drastically in tune to the changing times. To tide over the current and future challenges and to devise innovative solutions for the future, Kerala Police is coming forth again with Hac’KP – the International Online Hackathon 2021, concentrating on the theme of the Darknet. Partner us to code the future of policing & be a part of this historic journey,” Loknath Behera, DGP & State Police Chief, Kerala

This edition of the hackathon isn’t just a competition with multiple goals but will be a community-based initiative of highly motivated personnel working with a goal to build a single application. The final solution is expected to help the Police in creating applications for Advanced Darknet Search Engines for LEA, intelligent Darknet Monitoring and Dissecting the Darkweb.

Kerala Police Cyberdome on its website ( https://hackp.kerala.gov.in/ ) said Hac’KP aims to build a single application that can handle various requirements of the law and order organizations while working in the realm of Darknet. The vision of Hac’KP is, to enable opportunities for the law and order establishments to join hands with socially responsible individuals to design and build innovative digital solutions for effective policing and ensure civil safety.
