The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency ("DARPA" or "the Agency") Strategic Technology Office issued a Broad Area Announcement ("BAA") on August 25, 2010 to address the unauthorized disclosure of sensitive national security information from inside the Department of Defense. The DARPA BAA requests "novel approaches to insider threat detection that greatly increase the accuracy, rate and speed of detection and that impede the ability of adversaries to operate within government and military interest networks." Specifically, DARPA is soliciting abstracts and proposals for the Phase I of its Cyber Insider Threat program ("CINDER"), which is premised on the assumption that malicious actors have gained access to institutions central or close to U.S. national security, but that through carefully-planned surveillance of the associated communications systems and networks, it is possible to detect and extinguish these threats. Respondents are "strongly encouraged, but not required" to submit abstracts in advance of their formal proposals. Abstracts are due September 17, 2010 by 4 p.m. EST and proposals are due on October 22 by 4 p.m. EST.
