AGENCY: ACTION: PO 00000 Frm 00079 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The Federal Trade Commission (‘‘FTC’’) announces an open source prize competition that challenges the public to create and improve an innovative robocall honeypot. A honeypot is an information system that is designed to attract perpetrators of illegal acts—in this case robocallers—and gain knowledge about their tactics. The Contest will be held at DEF CON 22, a conference of information security specialists, in Las Vegas, Nevada, from August 7–10, 2014. The Contest will occur in 3 independent phases, with Winner(s) chosen from each phase. Phase 1, ‘‘Creator,’’ involves building a robocall honeypot. Phase 2, ‘‘Attacker,’’ requires Contestants to identify a honeypot’s security vulnerabilities. Phase 3, ‘‘Detective,’’ involves analysis of data from an existing robocall honeypot. DATES: Contestants may register for any phase beginning at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time (‘‘PDT’’) on August 7, 2014 at the FTC’s ‘‘Zapping Rachel’’ booth at DEF CON 22. The deadline for submitting entries for phase 1 is August 8, 2014 at 12:00 p.m. PDT; phase 2 is August 9, 2014 at 12:00 p.m. PDT; and phase 3 is August 9, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. PDT.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FTC Robocall Contest (the ‘‘Contest’’) will complement the Federal Trade Commission’s 2012 Robocall Challenge and advance its work, along with that of its public and private sector partners, to combat illegal telemarketing calls. Telemarketing robocalls are prerecorded messages that generally seek to promote the purchase of goods or services to a consumer, and are regulated by the FTC under the Telemarketing Sales Rule. See 16 CFR 310.4(b)(1)(v). Most such calls are illegal,1 and yet they continue to be prevalent. The FTC is hosting the Contest at DEF CON 22. The Contest will challenge the public to contribute to the design of robocall honeypots—information SUMMARY: 1 The vast majority of prerecorded sales calls are illegal under the Telemarketing Sales Rule unless the recipient has provided express written consent to receive them. 73 FR 51164 (Aug. 29, 2008); 16 CFR 310.4(b)(1)(v). The Telephone Consumer Protection Act also prohibits any type of call (other than a call made for emergency purposes) using automated telephone equipment or an artificial or prerecorded voice to a cellular telephone in the absence of prior express consent. 47 U.S.C. 227(b)(1)(A)(iii).
