US Government Seeking 'Game-Changing' Concepts Against Cyber Attacks

US National Coordination Office for Networking Information Technology Research and Development

I just received an interesting notice published in the Federal Register by the US National Coordination Office for Networking Information Technology Research and Development seeking "industry submissions of research concepts that will be 'game-changing' in the efforts to protect government systems from cyber attacks." Submissions will be accepted through April 15.

The request, which is part of the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative, is the first stage of what the office has called the National Cyber Leap Year, in which the government identifies concepts that create a leap in technology that could bring about such a shift.

NITRD will collect responses until April 15, after which a working group of six to eight high-ranking IT officials will decide those ideas that show the most promise. The government then will hold workshops to consider the research needed to make the concepts a reality. Government, academia and industry will work on how to develop the concepts.

See the announcement here.
