NIST - Information Technology

  1. Taking another step toward strengthening the nation’s critical infrastructure, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has drafted guidelines for applying its Cybersecurity Framework to critical technologies such as the Global Positioning System (GPS) that use positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) data. Part of a larger NIST effort to implement a recent Executive Order to safeguard systems that rely on PNT data, these cybersecurity guidelines accompany recent NIST efforts to provide and test a resilient timekeeping signal that is independent of GPS. Formally titled the
  2. Workshop title: Spectrum Sharing Technology for Next Generation Communications Call for Papers: Due to the ever-increasing demands on wireless communications and limited spectrum resources, spectrum sharing (SS) is being developed as a key solution to alleviate the spectrum scarcity problem in the current and next generation (NG) communication systems. Major notable SS systems include the 5G New Radio Unlicensed (NR-U), unlicensed LTE or License Assisted Access (LAA), Internet of Things (IoT), CBRS 3-tier access, LTE-WLAN Aggregation (LWA), Multefire, and others. They have used various
  3. NIST is made up of a wide array of professionals from many different backgrounds, from science and engineering to communications, information technology, and many more. Combining all of these fields onto one campus and cross-department cooperation builds this institute into a leader of standards and technology. Outside of the federal government employees here, there is another group of individuals that bring just as much to the table as anyone else, and they are the guest researchers. Guest researchers at NIST can be broken down into two groups: domestic associates and foreign associates. A
  4. Donna Dodson, a cybersecurity expert who worked for her entire 33-year career at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), has been honored this week with a Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medal for her numerous contributions to the field. Since 2002, the Partnership for Public Service has awarded “Sammies” medals to honor outstanding civil servants. One of just 11 winners chosen from a pool of more than 350 nominations, Dodson received her medal in the Safety, Security and International Affairs category. “Donna Dodson demonstrates the profound impact that a single
  5. BOULDER, Colo. — The U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has launched a crowdsourcing challenge to spur new methods to ensure that important public safety data sets can be de-identified to protect individual privacy. The Differential Privacy Temporal Map Challenge includes a series of contests that will award a total of up to $276,000 for differential privacy solutions for complex data sets that include information on both time and location. For critical applications such as emergency planning and epidemiology, public safety responders may need
  6. GAITHERSBURG, Md. — The U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has awarded 19 small businesses in 12 states a total of more than $4.4 million in grants to support innovative technology development. The awardees will receive Phase I or Phase II funding through NIST’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. The competitively selected proposals were submitted in response to a call for innovative products addressing specific technical needs. “The Small Business Innovation Research program supports scientific research and development leading
