The DARPA Information Innovation Office is Seeking Private Sector Recommendation
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Information Innovation Office (I2O) is requesting information on innovative technologies and approaches to secure the Nation’s infrastructure and to ensure the survival of the Department of Defense’s cyber capabilities in case of attack.

Specifically, answers are sought to the following questions:
1. At present, attackers in cyberspace seem to have the initiative and hence the advantage. What specific technologies should DARPA develop to address the imbalance?
2. Attacks on embedded computing systems have received much attention. What specific technologies should DARPA develop to secure embedded computing systems?
3. If DARPA could only invest in one cyber-security research area, what should that be and why?

Based on the responses to this announcement, DARPA will invite individuals from the technical community to participate in the DARPA Colloquium on Future Directions in Cyber Security, to take place on November 7, 2011 in Arlington, Virginia. For more information, contact Josh Magri at
