I’d been asked about my 2nd CFT proposal… here it is, in all it’s wordy glory: darpa-reduxxx.   Thanks as always to the DARPAnians and Mudge for the opportunity. Thanks to my IPMI paper sucking my life away I’m behind schedule, but it was always an excuse to play with and understand the tech, not make money.  Well, it’s not like I’m a monk, I like money, but there […]

I was just awarded a small DARPA contract through the Cyber Fast Track program which Mudge has been evangelizing for awhile now.  I’m still not sure how much I can say about it, but I will say more as time goes on… it was a remarkably painless process, I’ll say that – hard to believe that our big government can move so fast.
