Cyber Enabled Networked Physical Systems

RFP Summary provided by the agency

This is a critical time in the design and deployment of Cyber Enabled Networked Physical Systems (CNPS). Advances in networking, computing, sensing, and control systems have enabled a broad range of new devices. These systems are being designed and deployed now, but unfortunately security is often left as an additional feature that will be bolted on later. Industry is driven by functional requirements and fast-moving markets. The design choices being made today will directly impact the next several decades in transportation, emergency response, medical devices, and so forth. To address these challenges, CSD is engaging in efforts to build security into the design of these critical systems

Example project(s) summaries from past RFPs:

University of Southern California Information Sciences Institute, Los Angeles, California, was awarded $653,933 to develop new cyberattack datasets. Through this effort—titled “Los Angeles/Colorado Application and Network Information Community”—researchers will create foundational and derived datasets of various types of internet attacks as well as web-based services and installable tools for use by researchers. It will also provide DAaaS, with a combination of web-based services and installable tools for browsing Internet Protocol v4 and packet header data, capture high-speed data and detect internet of things devices.https://www.dhs.gov/science-and-technology/news/2018/02/08/news-release-dhs-st-awards-56m-improve-cybersecurity-research
