Federal Cybersecurity R&D Strategic Plan Released, December 2011

The Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) recently released Trustworthy Cyberspace: Strategic Plan for the Federal Cybersecurity Research and Development Program, which defines a set of interrelated priorities for the agencies of the United States government that conduct or sponsor research and development (R&D) in cybersecurity.

The new theme, Designed-In Security, builds the capability to design, develop, and evolve high-assurance, software-intensive systems predictably and reliably while effectively managing risk, cost, schedule, quality, and complexity. It promotes tools and environments that enable the simultaneous development of cyber-secure systems and the associated assurance evidence necessary to prove the system’s resistance to vulnerabilities, flaws, and attacks. Secure, best practices are built inside the system. Consequently, it becomes possible to evolve software-intensive systems more rapidly in response to changing requirements and environments.

For more information, read the OSTP announcement or download the strategic plan.
