DHS Seeks Industry Info on Updated Cyber Research Infrastructure - top government contractors - best government contracting event

cyberThe Department of Homeland Security has posted a request for information in search for a new infrastructure for efforts to help meet future cyber research and experimentation requirements.

A notice posted Wednesday on FedBizOpps stated the RFI is based on a 2015 National Science Foundation-funded report that called for new research infrastructure that could help develop and deploy future cybersecurity technologies.

DHS is interested in methods to operate and maintain a testbed that can comply with standards described under NSF’s Cybersecurity Experimentation of the Future: Catalyzing a New Generation of Experimental Cybersecurity Research report.

Submissions should also include approaches on an organizational structure that will foster the creation of research and development tools through partnerships with industry, academia, national laboratory and international researchers, the RFI noted.

The CEF testbed will work to provide networks, tools, methodologies and processes to aid national testing of new cybersecurity technologies, the notice said.

Interested parties can submit responses until September 21.
