Lockheed Martin is getting a $US31 million contract from the US government to work on reinventing TCP/IP for a new Military Network Protocol. Also lending a hand in this effort to create a proper cyber-arsenal is Microsoft. What a team!
Based on what Lockheed Martin's John Mengucci is saying, the contract's main focus is to make preparations for attacks through our most beloved medium:
"New network threats and attacks require revolutionary protection concepts. Through this project, as well as our cyber Mission Maker initiatives, we are working to enhance cyber security and ensure that warfighters can fight on despite cyber attacks."
