RFP Summary provided by the agency
The research and development of tools and techniques to aid DHS mission and operations components, law enforcement entities, and Critical Infrastructure (CI) asset owners and operators (to include IT and Internet Infrastructures) in addressing the security gaps between existing traditional IT networks and the broad range of new IoT devices being designed and deployed without security considerations.
Example project(s) summaries from past RFPs:
DHS (S&T) announced Ionic Security, Inc., based in Atlanta, Georgia, as the first company to successfully complete prototype testing and move to the pilot deployment phase as part of the Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP). Ionic successfully tested a secure, data transfer plug-in specifically designed for video surveillance systems. Ionic’s Data Trust Platform secures video surveillance feeds to prevent directed attacks without requiring new technology, additional encryption, or proxies and without changing the end-user experience. The Data Trust Platform integrates with legacy and current technology and meets key industry standards such as Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) Standard, ONVIF-S, and the CENC Standard.https://www.dhs.gov/science-and-technology/news/2018/04/30/news-release-dhs-st-awards-first-phase-4-award-iot-security
