Army Posts Cyber Defense Tech RFI

Jeff Brody

A U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center directorate is seeking information on multiple cyber defense tools designed to maintain the trustworthiness of data within a network.

CERDEC’s Space and Terrestrial Communications Directorate wants to build a cybersecurity platform to secure information from unauthorized alteration and ensure that decisionmakers will use trusted data, according to a FedBizOpps notice posted Tuesday.

Potential attributes of the technology include an information trust score architecture, blockchain algorithms, an authentication tool, a provenance tracker and a machine learning-based integrity service.

Interested vendors have until June 27 to submit responses to the request for information notice.
