DARPA’s Information Innovation Office is hosting a Proposers Day to provide information to potential applicants on the structure and objectives of the Safe Documents (SafeDocs) program. The aim of SafeDocs is to restore trust in electronic documents and messages by mitigating one of the root causes of the Internet insecurity epidemic: exploitation of software's input-handling weaknesses via complex, maliciously crafted data inputs. The program will research methods to create technological assurance that an electronic document or message automatically checked and found well-formed is safe to open, as well as generate safer document formats that are subsets of the current untrustworthy ones, preserve existing information, and are also safe to open.
Additional details, including registration instructions, are available at https://www.fbo.gov/spg/ODA/DARPA/CMO/DARPA-SN-18-71/listing.html.
Please address administrative questions to email@example.com, and refer to the SafeDocs Proposers Day (DARPA-SN-18-71) in all correspondence.
DARPA hosts Proposers Days to provide potential performers with information on whether and how they might respond to the Government’s research and development solicitations and to increase efficiency in proposal preparation and evaluation. Therefore, the SafeDocs Proposers Day is open only to registered potential applicants, and not to the media or general public.
DARPA anticipates sharing additional program details in a forthcoming Broad Agency Announcement to be posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website.
