Inside the Reporter's Notebook: Cyber bills abound; OFPP and reverse auctions; DoJ's API release

In this week's "Inside the Reporter's Notebook," the passage of five cybersecurity bills by Congress in the past week signals a long-coming and much needed change to how agencies defend their computer networks; an interesting bid protest decision flew under the radar that signals yet another challenge to FedBid, the reverse auction contractor and the Justice Department's first foray into the open data world with the launch of two APIs is noteworthy, but the underlying reason why DoJ could release the software code is really the story here.

Joshua Kneifel, Research Economist, NIST

When architects and engineers design buildings, they have to meet local building codes. But, simply meeting those codes won't ensure you have the most efficient design for the long haul. Joshua Kneifel is a research economist in the engineering laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. On the Federal Drive with Tom Temin, he told Federal News Radio's Lauren Larson about a new tool NIST engineers developed that lets builders measure the economic and environmental impacts of everything from the floor to the roof.

NIST draft document solicits cloud users' input

The National Institute of Standards and Technology needs your help with its guide to user experiences on cloud systems. NIST has a draft document out to explain what users expect from a cloud-based network, which should be a foundation piece for your agency's cloud computing plans. The framework NIST is suggesting has 5 main attributes to a cloud's user experience and 21 examples of what those involve. They're meant to serve as a guide to explain what most people expect when they try to use a cloud system. It's going to be part of the next volume of the agency's Cloud Computing Technology Roadmap, the third installment of that particular series. NIST expects that roadmap to come out in the next six months.

Tom Karygiannis, National Institute of Standards and Technology

It seems like the whole world is going mobile, and that includes the federal government. Agencies are using more and more apps for collaboration and productivity. But some apps increase the potential for exposing government data. To help you guard against these security risks, the National Institute of Standards and Technology is providing tips to the federal community for vetting third-party apps. Computer Scientist, Tom Karygiannis, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the guidelines.
