Defense Information Systems Agency outlines plans to wall off agency from public internet
The Defense Department is giving industry more time to come up with plans to quarantine the agency’s internal networks using the cloud. The Defense Information Systems Agency extended the deadline for vendors to submit white papers on how to build a cloud-based system that cuts off agency networks from the public web while still allowing employees to access the internet. The tech would close many of the digital doorways hackers and other online bad actors use to attack the Department of Defense Information Network, or DODIN, according to the solicitation. Under the proposed system, all internal web browsing would be redirected to remote servers located in federal data centers, essentially creating a digital moat around the agency. The new deadline for proposals is Dec 14.
