IARPA extends SoURCE CODE due dates

On March 12, the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) updated the SoURCE CODE broad agency announcement (BAA). The submission date for TA-1 only proposals is extended to 5:00 p.m. Eastern on March 29, and the submission date for TA 1, TA 2, and TA 3 proposals is extended to 5:00 p.m. Eastern on May 3.

The SoURCE CODE program is seeking to provide novel technologies to assist forensic experts in making determinations of the most likely attackers, based on coding styles. The program will explore full feature spaces in binary code and source code files to measure the similarity between files and provide information to forensic experts to the likely origins (country, groups, individuals, etc.).

This capability would enable the automated matching of similar binaries from known samples, allowing analysts to speed up the attribution of malicious attacks to improve law enforcement and intelligence community responses. IARPA is seeking innovative solutions for the SoURCE CODE Program in this BAA.
