The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Information Innovation Office (I2O) is sponsoring a Proposers Day on Dec. 14, 2015 to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the anticipated Rapid Attack Detection, Isolation and Characterization (RADICS) Broad Agency Announcement (BAA).
The goal of the RADICS program is to develop innovative technologies for detecting and responding to cyber-attacks on US critical infrastructure, especially those parts essential to DoD mission effectiveness.
DARPA is interested specifically in early warning of impending attacks, situation awareness, network isolation and threat characterization in response to a widespread and persistent cyber-attack on the power grid and its dependent systems.
Potentially relevant technologies include anomaly detection, planning and automated reasoning, mapping of conventional and industrial control systems networks, ad hoc network formation, analysis of industrial control systems protocols, and rapid forensic characterization of cyber threats in industrial control system devices.
The Proposers Day will be held at the DARPA Conference Center in Arlington, Virginia 22203.
Further details are available via Solicitation Number: DARPA-SN-16-08. The response deadline is December 04, 2015.
