In the wake of whistleblower revelations about National Security Agency eavesdropping, the Air Force is seeking better protection against leaks.

An announcement by the Air Force Research Laboratory – Information Directorate (AFRL/RI) asks for white papers on how to improve cybersecurity, including detecting insider threats.

“Research, design and develop techniques to identify, characterize, categorize and manage insider threats at the tactical and strategic levels,” says the announcement for the $24 million project, which debuted in 2011. “Assess and determine tools to conduct fingerprinting of data and the management of such data across a diverse network.”

The announcement also lists a variety of other topics that AFRL is interested in, including enhanced situational awareness in cyberspace, reducing friendly cyber footprints, enhancing network resilience, and “developing technology to provide secure end-to-end identity attributable device authentication across security and administrative domains both wired and wireless.”
