The federal government is developing a cybersecurity research and 
development agenda that would focus on three priorities that could lead 
to "game-changing" technologies to improve the "trustworthiness of 
cyberspace," the National Science Foundation announced in a Federal 
Register notice Thursday.

NSF is working through the inter-agency Networking and Information 
Technology Research and Development Program with the Department of 
Homeland Security, the White House's Office of Science and Technology 
Policy, and others to lay out a strategy that would see the government 
invest in research on economic incentives for cybersecurity, the 
development of "trustworthy spaces" online, and ways of managing the 
network in such a way to make work chaotic for would-be attackers. 

NITRD will be detailing the research more thoroughly in an event in 
Berkeley, Calif., on May 19, and will follow that event up with the 
establishment of an online forum, the Cybersecurity R&D Kickoff Forum, 
which will allow public comment on the plans.

The government will be looking for ideas on how to refine or enhance its 
research themes, the challenges each theme presents, any associated use 
cases or state-of-the-art activities, and how and whether the private 
sector should be involved.
