This report details key concerns discussed during the JFAC/DAU/CSIAC Software Assurance (SwA) Cyber Experiment (CYBEX) on 7 Aug 2018. In addition to evaluating newly developed SwA guides for program managers and developers, the exchange included addressing/bringing back foundational software/system engineering concepts to address root of fundamental SwA
The mission of the DoD Joint Federated Assurance Center (JFAC) is to promote software and hardware assurance in defense acquisition programs, systems and supporting activities. This presentation will review the JFAC sponsored effort to provide program managers with a guidebook for "engineering-in" software assurance into defense systems during the entire
It is widely accepted that many state and non-state adversaries are approaching technical parity with United States military. This is especially the case where commercial research and development produces militarily useful technologies such as cyber, robotics, and drones. (The Operational Environment and the Changing Character of Future Warfare, 2017) The
Delivering a Software Intensive System (SIS) that is on time, within budget and with the required functionality with traditional systems processes has been problematic (Hagan 2011). This problem will only increase as the complexity of SISs within the Department of Defense (DoD) grows and more functionality within systems is relegated to software (Force
