AgencyInsight is an opportunity to garner accurate and timely knowledge about U.S. Government Agencies through productive discussions with officials from government agencies and industry executives doing business within those agencies.
DARPA has recently launched the "Cyber Fast Track" (CFT) program, intended to cut red tape to apply for funding for cyber security projects.
CFT is designed to fund research to be performed by boutique computer security companies, individuals, and hacker/maker-spaces, and allow them to keep the commercial Intellectual Property for what they create. The goal is not to have these entities focus on solving DoD problems, but rather to fund research efforts these organizations would have considered on their own but are not pursuing due to complexity/cost/time/etc. Where it is an effort that may help the community at large it is almost by definition within the running lanes of CFT to consider. What's good for the community is good for DARPA.
Please note, CFT does not purchase existing technology, nor does it fund efforts to perform engineering modifications to existing (or known) technologies. This is a research effort.
At this AgencyInsight event, Peiter (Mudge) Zatko, the program manager of CFT, will present an overview of the CFT program and answer questions from attendees.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) was
established in 1958 to prevent strategic surprise from negatively
impacting U.S. national security and create strategic surprise for U.S.
adversaries by maintaining the technological superiority of the U.S.
To fulfill its mission, the Agency relies on diverse performers to
apply multi-disciplinary approaches to both advance knowledge through
basic research and create innovative technologies that address current
practical problems through applied research. DARPA’s scientific
investigations span the gamut from laboratory efforts to the creation of
full-scale technology demonstrations in the fields of biology,
medicine, computer science, chemistry, physics, engineering,
mathematics, material sciences, social sciences, neurosciences and
more. As the DoD’s primary innovation engine, DARPA undertakes projects
that are finite in duration but that create lasting revolutionary
