NSF: Cybersecurity Innovation for Cyberinfrastructure (CICI) NSF 18-547
The objective of the Cybersecurity Innovation for Cyberinfrastructure (CICI) program is to develop, deploy and integrate security solutions that benefit the scientific community by ensuring the integrity, resilience and reliability of the end-to-end scientific workflow. CICI seeks three categories of projects:(1)Secure Scientific Cyberinfrastructure: These awards seek to secure the scientific workflow by encouraging novel and trustworthy architectural and design approaches, models and frameworks for the creation of a holistic, integrated security environment that spans the entire scientific CI ecosystem;(2)Collaborative Security Response Center: This single award targets the development of a community resource to provide security monitoring, analysis, expertise, and resources Research & Education (R&E) cyberinfrastructure staff, regardless of physical location or organization; and Research Data Protection: These awards provide solutions that both ensure the provenance of research data and reduce the complexity of protecting research data sets regardless of funding source.
USC may only submit only 2 CICI proposals in response to this program announcement. Your application submission(s) MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a standard NIH formatted biosketch and a two page abstract via email to Richard White (firstname.lastname@example.org) by April 27, 2018.
NSF indicates that a letter of intent is NOT REQUIRED and a full proposal is due by June 04, 2018. For more information: https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2018/nsf18547/nsf18547.htm
