We are Project Gunsway--grassroots volunteers committed to ensuring that maritime-related technologies are worthy of the trust we place in them. We will accomplish this goal by applying our expertise, both as sailors and hackers, to conduct original security research involving the maritime Internet of Things (IoT). We are also dedicated to working within the information security and maritime communities to encourage others to join the effort.

Although the research and findings we disclose are free to the community, it comes with associated costs.

The reality is that obtaining maritime technology gets expensive. As a volunteer group, many of these costs can add up quickly and to date, we have paid for them largely out of our own pockets. In joining you are supporting the continuing process of finding, researching, and detailing vulnerabilities with maritime related technology.

This week Carnegie Mellon University's CERT CC has issued four Common Vulnerability Enumeration (CVE) notices related to our work analyzing Auto-Maskin brand equipment as seen in our Ship Hacking: a Primer for Today’s Pirate at this years DerbyCon

A one-time donation in hopes of recouping some of the costs associated with obtaining the equipment used for our research would be greatly appreciated. 

*please note - there is no option for a one-time donation. you will have to cancel the reoccuring payment
