DARPA Conference Center
The Information Innovation Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new Automated Rapid Certification Of Software (ARCOS) program and to facilitate teaming. The goal of ARCOS is to automate the evaluation of software assurance evidence so that certifiers can rapidly determine if system risk is acceptable. “Certification” is the process of determining that a system’s risk is acceptable.

DARPA Conference Center
The Microsystems Technology Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information on our new Automatic Implementation of Secure Silicon (AISS) program. AISS will address the economic and technical challenges associated with building in chip security. The program aims to automate the process of incorporating scalable defense mechanisms into chip designs, while allowing designers to explore economics versus security trade-offs, and maximize design productivity. The objective is to develop a design tool and IP ecosystem – which includes tool vendors, chip developers, IP licensers, and the open-source community – that will allow security to be inexpensively incorporated into chip designs with minimal effort and expertise, ultimately making scalable on-chip security pervasive.

DARPA’s Information Innovation Office is hosting a Proposers Day to provide information to potential applicants on the structure and objectives of the Computers and Humans Exploring Software Security (CHESS) program. The goal of the CHESS program is to research the effectiveness of enabling computers and humans to collaboratively reason over software artifacts (e.g., source code, compiled binaries, etc.) for the purpose of finding zero-day vulnerabilities at a scale and speed appropriate for the complex software ecosystem upon which the U.S. Government, military, and economy depend.

Co-located with DEF CON 24, Paris Las Vegas Convention Center, 3655 S. Las Vegas Blvd.



DARPA will hold the world’s first all-computer Capture the Flag tournament live on stage (co-located with the DEF CON conference in Las Vegas) where automated systems may take the first steps toward a defensible, connected future. Seven teams from across the United States qualified to compete in the Final Event. For more information, please visit:

Real cyber battles require both offense and defense. The CyberStakes CTF was a team-based full-spectrum, attack/defense Capture the Flag (CTF) competition. Each team was given identical software to defend while simultaneously attacking other teams. Points were awarded for successfully attacking other competitors while simultaneously defending their own infrastructure. This event was in the spirit of the annual DEF CON CTF competition, where most attacks revolve around exploitation and defense of traditional software binaries.
