NIST invites organizations to provide products and technical expertise to support and demonstrate security platforms for the Capabilities Assessment for Securing Manufacturing Industrial Control Systems. This notice is the initial step for the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) in collaborating with technology companies to address cybersecurity challenges identified under the Manufacturing sector program. Participation in the Capabilities Assessment for Securing Manufacturing Industrial Control Systems use case is open to all interested organizations.
Interested parties must contact NIST to request a letter of interest template to be completed and submitted to NIST. Letters of interest will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Collaborative activities will commence as soon as enough completed and signed letters of interest have been returned to address all the necessary components and capabilities of the project, but no earlier than April 24, 2017. When the use case has been completed, NIST will post a notice on the NCCoE Manufacturing sector program Web site at https://nccoe.nist.gov/projects/use_cases/manufacturing announcing the completion of the use case and informing the public that it will no longer accept letters of interest for the Capabilities Assessment for Securing Manufacturing Industrial Control Systems use case.
