Submission + - DARPA Seeks Revolution, Not Evolution, in Cyberspace Capabilities (threatpost.com)

Gunkerty Jeb writes: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the avant-garde research and development arm of the Department of Defense — perhaps best known for its central role in the development of the Internet — is soliciting research proposals that would help the military improve its cyber battlespace capabilities such that they match the DoD’s existing superiority in the other domains of war.

The 52-page announcement for the funding opportunity, enigmatically titled Plan X, is predictably vague. It is billed as a call for research proposal submissions designed to advance the nature of cyberwarfare by further measuring, quantifying, and understanding cyberspace as well as planning and managing large-scale, real-time operations on the dynamic network environments there.
