Army Research Lab Wants Companies for Cyber Defense




“The effort seeks to gauge industry interest and capabilities in advance of a planned research solicitation.

The Army Contracting Command on behalf of the Army Research Laboratory in Adelphi, Md., issued a sources-sought notice this week (W911QX-17-R-0006) for the Defensive Cyber Operations (DCO) research project.

This effort strives to improve the state of the art in cyber defense, which relies on raw data from real-world networks that contain vital evidence of the threats being perpetrated by hostiles against the network.

It involves analysis of the data and the ability to improve attack detection accuracy and timeliness, and development of new tools and techniques to combat adversaries.

The extensive network view is a key enabler to cyber research and technology, Army researchers say. This effort focuses on improving ways to combat sophisticated cyber adversaries as well as investigating the next generation of defensive cyber operational tools, techniques, and procedures;, tactical network security; exploring prospective sensor capabilities; executing components of information security continuous monitoring; risk measurement and monitoring; improving adversary attribution; and insider threat analysis.

The objective of this effort is to develop a fundamental understanding of the dynamic cyber domain while providing round-the-clock cyber defense of the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD).”
