A cybersecurity proposal fromÂ NASA‘s Ames Research Center in California seeks to address vulnerabilities on the agency’s current and emerging infrastructure through collaboration with industry, Fedscoop reported Monday.
Greg Otto writesÂ Jerry Davis, NASA Ames chief information officer, is working to get the Gryphon XÂ initiative in front of agency leaders.
“NASA’s not a cyber entity,”Â Davis told Fedscoop in an interview.
“[Gryphon X] is something new and so it takes a little while for people to ingest and understand it,” he added, according to the report.
The report said the Ames Research Center aims toÂ buildÂ aÂ simulation testbed for new technologiesÂ and a training hub for NASA cybersecurity professionals through the initiative.
Davis also envisions the programÂ reachingÂ out toÂ potential industry partners via government contract vehicles and cooperative research-and-development agreements, Otto noted.
