Today, Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS), Government off-the-shelf (GOTS), and Free and open-source (FOSS) software support nearly all aspects of DoD, military, and commercial operations. Securing this diverse technology base requires highly skilled hackers who reason about the functionality of software and identify novel vulnerabilities, using a suite of tools and techniques that require extensive training. While effective, the process is largely manual and requires hundreds, if not thousands, of hours of effort for each vulnerability discovered.

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.
The Department of Defense (DoD) maintains information systems that depend on Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software, Government off-the-shelf (GOTS) software, and Free and open source (FOSS) software. Securing this diverse technology base requires highly skilled hackers who reason about the functionality of software and identify novel vulnerabilities.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Small Business Programs Office (SBPO) is issuing an SBIR/STTR Opportunity (SBO) inviting submissions of innovative research concepts in the technical domain(s) of Human Systems. In particular, DARPA is interested in understanding the feasibility of low size, weight, and power (SWaP), hands-free interfaces for rapid information consumption.
