DARPA will host a Proposers Day in support of the System Security Integrated Through Hardware and Firmware (SSITH) program, on Friday, April 21, 2017 at the Booz Allen Hamilton Conference Center (3811 N. Fairfax Drive, Suite 600, Arlington, VA 22203) from 8:00am to 5:00pm EDT. Participants must register for the SSITH Proposers Day through the registration website by April 18, 2017 at 5:00pm EDT. A Special Notice (DARPA-SN-17-31) with details about the Proposers Day is available on www.fbo.gov. DARPA Broad Agency Announcement (HR001117S00230 is expected to post on the same website prior to the Proposers Day.
The objective of the SSITH Program is to develop hardware design tools that provide security against hardware vulnerabilities that are exploited through software in DoD and commercial electronic systems. SSITH seeks to leverage current research in hardware design and software security to propel new research in the area of hardware security at the microarchitecture level. Security approaches will limit the permitted hardware to states that are assured to be secure while maintaining the performance and power required for system operation.
The purpose of this Proposers Day meeting is to provide information on the SSITH program, promote additional discussion on this topic, address questions from potential proposers, and provide an opportunity for potential proposers to share their capabilities and ideas for teaming arrangements. Proposer Days are open only to registered potential proposers. The event is closed to the general public and media. Media inquiries should be directed to email@example.com.
