The Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) is currently heading a new five-year, $10 million U.S. Department of Homeland Security project to investigate open cybersecurity methods and how they can benefit government. The program, called Homeland Open Security Technology (HOST), is aimed at identifying open-source approaches that can support federal security objectives while saving agencies money. As part of the program, GTRI researchers are reaching out to members of government, industry and academia to learn how such solutions have been successfully implemented and where challenges remain. They plan to launch a public information portal this summer.
