NITRD is asking the computing community for input on a roadmap for cyber security R&D called for in the Federal Plan for Cyber Security and Information Assurance Research and Development. Individuals from academic institutions, industry, government research labs and development centers, and international organizations are encouraged to submit white papers. The request was put out by the Cyber Security and Information Assurance Interagency Working Group.
The CSIA request includes submission guidelines, background and scope, and questions that the white papers need to address. The broad topics that the questions are under are:
CSIA R&D Strategic Issues
CSIA R&D Technical Topics and Priorities (as listed in the request)
CSIA R&D Roadmap
R&D Recommendations in the Federal Plan
CSIA is looking for papers to be submitted by November 30 but the submission guidelines state: White papers submitted by January 31, 2007 will be used to the greatest extent possible.
