Jared Serbu, DoD Reporter, Federal News Radio

DARPA launches its latest challenge program next week. It's called the Cyber Grand Challenge, and its goal is to completely transform the way computer network defense works. Over the course of two years, teams will try to build automated systems that can find and fix cybersecurity vulnerabilities so quickly that even the best human hackers in the world can't defeat them. Michael Walker is a former hacker who's now the program manager for DARPA's latest challenge. He talked about it with Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu during a demonstration day at the Pentagon last week.

On DoD: DARPA, DISA and ONR discuss the latest on mobile technology and security

Director of the Defense Research Projects Agency Director Arati Prabhakar says DARPA's budget wasn't decimated by sequestration, but it is being slowly eroded. The Office of Naval Research and the Marine Corps team up for technology demonstration. John Moniz, ONR program manager, says marines on the front lines can get real-time data using smartphones. At the recent AFCEA Mobile Symposium, Defense Information Systems Agency officials talk about mobile security possibilities.
