    Army preps on-the-spot 3D printing process for the battlefield

    The Army Research Lab and Purdue University develop a process that would let soldiers repair damaged parts on aircraft and ground vehicles on the spot.

  • Cyber tools sniffs malware on network traffic

    New cyber tool learns network behavior to sniff out malware

    Researchers from Georgia Tech demonstrate a prototype tool, ExecScent, that learns a network's normal traffic patterns to spot the command and control traffic from infected hosts. In live tests it identified dozens of new C&C domains and discovered hundreds of infected computers.

  • 3D reef

    3D printings new frontier: Rebuilding lost reefs

    A project to restore lost reefs along the coast of the Arabian Peninsula is an example of what environmental agencies can do to reverse ecological damage.

  • fast

    Mix of tech brings warp speed to WANs

    Aspera and Intel combine technologies to get 10 gigabits/sec transfer speeds over a wide area network.

  • swimming robotos

    Swimming robots could enlist for Coast Guard duties

    The semi-autonomous Wave Gliders, which have performed well in rough conditions for NOAA, show potential for Guard duty.

  • Savannah

    Energy lab's wireless system secure enough for classified data

    The Savannah River National Lab’s prototype hardware, designed in collaboration with NSA, uses Suite B cryptography for a system that could be adapted for other uses.

    E-authentication: What IT managers will be focusing on over the next 18 months

    The moves to cloud computing and shared databases are among the factors driving e-authentication.

  • New ways to measure supercomputer performance

    A new way to measure the best supercomputers

    The creator of the venerable Linpack benchmark says its value as a proxy for real-world performance "has become very low," so he's created an alternative.

  • cloudhacker

    New program could foil hackers in the cloud

    MIT researchers show how one computer connected to a cloud can spy on every other computer in that cloud. But they have a solution.

  • Equipment on Voyager space craft

    Older technology catches the solar system by its tail

    The Voyager spacecraft, with their 36-year-old systems and 68KB of computing capacity, may soon exit the solar system.

  • Best Practices in Web-based Application Security

    Security experts make it clear: The application is the new network perimeter. Agencies looking to ensure the security of their networks and systems need to ensure the security of the application layer. Fortunately, even as Web applications come under increasing attack, security professionals are developing strategies to address these vulnerabilities. In this webcast, a federal expert will share best practices and lessons learned in devising Web-based application security that is both robust and scalable.

  • High Speed Guard: Understanding the Business Case for Cross Domain Data Sharing Solutions

    The need for information sharing across operational domains has never been greater. Agencies in law enforcement, defense and other public sectors need to ensure that mission-critical data is available to users across network boundaries -- quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively. But they also need to ensure that those transfers happen securely. In this webcast, Shaheen Parks, an analyst with Forrester Research, will discuss the business case for an automated cross domain information transfer solution, such as Raytheon’s High Speed Guard.

  • GameChanger: NoSQL

    Big data is big business for government. It’s clear in the funding provided for big data-related projects, and it’s clear in the response from agencies at all levels of government. Download this informative whitepaper to learn how NoSQL can expand possibilities by tapping into the unrealized value of your organization’s big data.

  • The STAND: Cybersecurity

    Advanced persistent threats. Zero-day attacks. Insider threats. Cybersecurity experts say that if IT leaders are not concerned about the ongoing evolution of the cyber landscape, it just means they are not paying enough attention. The problem is that these and other emerging cyber tactics are designed to evade traditional cyber defenses and escape detection until it’s too late. The good news is it’s not a lost cause. In this special report, two subject matter experts discuss cybersecurity technologies and strategies that can help agencies defend their systems and data against the latest cyber threats, today and into the future.
