SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14879 Background: The NCCoE, part of NIST, is a public-private collaboration for accelerating the widespread adoption of integrated cybersecurity tools and technologies. The NCCoE brings together experts from industry, government, and academia under one roof to develop practical, interoperable cybersecurity approaches that address the real-world needs of complex Information Technology (IT) systems. By accelerating dissemination and use of these integrated tools and technologies for protecting IT assets, the NCCoE will enhance trust in U.S. IT communications, data, and storage systems; reduce risk for companies and individuals using IT systems; and encourage development of innovative, job-creating cybersecurity products and services. Process: NIST is soliciting responses from all sources of relevant security capabilities (see below) to enter into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) to provide products and technical expertise to support and demonstrate security platforms for the Capabilities Assessment for Securing Manufacturing Industrial Control Systems for the Manufacturing sector. The full Capabilities Assessment for Securing Manufacturing Industrial Control Systems use case can be viewed here: https://nccoe.nist.gov/projects/use_ cases/capabilities-assessment-securingmanufacturing-industrial-controlsystems. Interested parties should contact NIST using the information provided in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of this notice. NIST will then provide each interested party with a letter of interest template, which the party must complete, certify that it is accurate, and submit to NIST. NIST will contact interested parties if there are questions regarding the responsiveness of the letters of interest to the use case objective or requirements identified below. NIST will select participants who have submitted complete letters of interest on a first come, first served basis within each category of product components or capabilities listed below up to the number of participants in each category necessary to carry out this use case. However, there may be continuing opportunities to participate even after initial activity commences. Selected participants will be required to enter into a consortium CRADA with NIST (for reference, see ADDRESSES section above). NIST published a notice in the Federal Register on October 19, 2012 (77 FR 64314) inviting U.S. companies to enter into National Cybersecurity Excellence Partnerships (NCEPs) in E:\FR\FM\23MRN1.SGM 23MRN1 sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES 14880 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 55 / Thursday, March 23, 2017 / Notices furtherance of the NCCoE. For this demonstration project, NCEP partners will not be given priority for participation. Capabilities Assessment for Securing Manufacturing Industrial Control Systems Objective: This is the first of a four-part series designed to provide businesses with the information they need to establish an anomaly detection and prevention capability in their own environments. This project will be using commercially available hardware/ software deployed on an established lab infrastructure. The goal of this project is to provide businesses with a cybersecurity example solution that can be implemented or that can inform improved cybersecurity in their manufacturing processes. Implementing behavioral anomaly detection tools provides a key security component in sustaining business operations, particularly those based on Industrial Control Systems (ICS). One of the ways to disrupt operations is to introduce anomalous data into a manufacturing process, whether deliberately or inadvertently. Although the example solution will focus on cybersecurity, our example solution may also produce residual benefit to manufacturers for detecting anomalous conditions not related to security. A detailed description of the Capabilities Assessment for Securing Manufacturing Industrial Control Systems Project is available at https://nccoe.nist.gov/ projects/use_cases/capabilitiesassessment-securing-manufacturingindustrial-control-systems. Requirements: Each responding organization’s letter of interest should identify which security platform component(s) or capability(ies) it is offering. Letters of interest should not include company proprietary information, and all components and capabilities must be commercially available. Components are listed in the High-Level Architectures section of the Capabilities Assessment for Securing Manufacturing Industrial Control Systems use case (for reference, please see the link in the Process section above) and include, but are not limited to: • ICS behavioral anomaly detection tools. • Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs). • Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs). • Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) platform. Each responding organization’s letter of interest should identify how their products address one or more of the following desired solution characteristics in the High-Level VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:13 Mar 22, 2017 Jkt 241001 Architectures section of the Capabilities Assessment for Securing Manufacturing Industrial Control Systems use case (for reference, please see the link in the Process section above): • Detection of anomalous conditions. • Process and/or device damage prevention. • SIEM-based alerting/alarming capability. In their letters of interest, responding organizations need to understand and commit to provide: 1. Access for all participants’ project teams to component interfaces and the organization’s experts necessary to make functional connections among security platform components; and 2. Support for development and demonstration of the Capabilities Assessment for Securing Manufacturing Industrial Control Systems for the Manufacturing sector use case in NCCoE facilities, which will be conducted in a manner consistent with Federal requirements (e.g., FIPS 200, FIPS 201, SP 800–53, and SP 800–63).

NIST cannot guarantee that all of the products proposed by respondents will be used in the demonstration. Each prospective participant will be expected to work collaboratively with NIST staff and other project participants under the terms of the consortium CRADA in the development of the Capabilities Assessment for Securing Manufacturing Industrial Control Systems for the Manufacturing sector capability. Prospective participants’ contribution to the collaborative effort will include assistance in establishing the necessary interface functionality, connection and set-up capabilities and procedures, demonstration harnesses, environmental and safety conditions for use, integrated platform user instructions, and demonstration plans and scripts necessary to demonstrate the desired capabilities. Each participant will train NIST personnel, as necessary, to operate its product in capability demonstrations to the manufacturing community.
