Combined Synopsis/Solicitation
Added: Jun 01, 2010 5:07 pm
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is soliciting proposals for innovative research into the design of new computer systems that:

•Are highly resistant to cyber-attack;
•Can adapt after a successful attack in order to continue rendering useful services;
•Learn from previous attacks how to guard against and cope with future attacks; and
•Can repair themselves after attacks have succeeded.

Proposed solutions may involve (but are not limited to):

•Novel hardware architectures
•Novel operating system and other system software
•Novel programming languages and development environments
•Novel formal methods
•Co-designs involving several of the above

Proposed research should investigate innovative approaches that enable revolutionary advances in science, devices, and/or systems. Specifically excluded is research that primarily results in evolutionary improvements to the existing state of practice.
