The applicant proposes to receive, import, and export marine mammal parts for comparative research on the physiology and other biological aspects of marine mammals. Unlimited samples from up to 100 individual cetaceans and 100 individual pinnipeds (excluding walrus) are requested to be received, imported, or exported annually. These samples may be received from U.S. based research, legal subsistence hunts, incidental fisheries takes, or during routine husbandry/health assessments of curated animals. Samples may also be imported from international collaborators that were originally collected as research samples, curated animals, animal killed during subsistence hunts, animals killed incidental to fishery operations, or dead stranded animals. No live animal takes are requested. The applicant has requested a 5-year permit.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background This National Telecommunications and Information Administration cybersecurity multistakeholder process focuses on promoting software component transparency. Most modern software is not written completely from scratch, but includes existing components, modules, and libraries from the open source and commercial software world. Modern development practices such as code reuse, and a dynamic IT marketplace with acquisitions and mergers, make it challenging to track the use of software components. The Internet of Things compounds this phenomenon, as new organizations, enterprises, and innovators take on the role of software developer to add ‘‘smart’’ features or connectivity to their products. While the majority of libraries and components do not have known vulnerabilities, many do, and the sheer quantity of software means that some software products ship with vulnerable or out-ofdate components.
