SYNOPSIS

Cyberspace has transformed the daily lives of people for the better. The rush to adopt cyberspace, however, has exposed its fragility and vulnerabilities: corporations, agencies, national infrastructure and individuals have been victims of cyber-attacks. In December 2011, the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) with the cooperation of NSF issued a broad, coordinated federal strategic plan for cybersecurity research and development to "change the game," minimize the misuses of cyber technology, bolster education and training in cybersecurity, establish a science of cybersecurity, and transition promising cybersecurity research into practice. This challenge requires a dedicated approach to research, development, and education that leverages the disciplines of mathematics and statistics, the social sciences, and engineering together with the computing, communications and information sciences.

The Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC) program welcomes proposals that address Cybersecurity from a Trustworthy Computing Systems (TWC) perspective and/or a Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE) perspective (see "Perspectives"). In addition, we welcome proposals that integrate research addressing both of these perspectives as well as proposals focusing entirely on Cybersecurity Education (see below). Proposals may be submitted in one of the following three categories:

  • Small projects: up to $500,000 in total budget, with durations of up to three years
  • Medium projects: $500,001 to $1,200,000 in total budget, with durations of up to four years
  • Frontier projects: $1,200,001 to $10,000,000 in total budget, with durations of up to five years

Projects with Trustworthy Computing Systems and/or Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences perspectives may include a Transition to Practice (TTP) option, described in a supplemental document of no more than five pages. This document should describe how successful research results are to be further developed, matured, and experimentally deployed in organizations or industries, including in networks and end systems used by members of the NSF science and engineering communities. Proposals with a TTP option may exceed the above-stated maxima by up to $167,000 for Small projects,  $400,000 for Medium projects and $750,000 for Frontier projects.

In addition, the SaTC program seeks proposals addressing Cybersecurity Education with total budgets limited to $300,000 and durations of up to two years. Cybersecurity education projects may not include any of the three perspectives named above.
