ONI posts open source cybersecurity info sources sought

On June 7, the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) posted a sources sought notice for open source and publicly available cybersecurity and miscellaneous information. Responses are due by 11:00 a.m. Eastern on July 7.

ONI and NAVINTEL are positioning themselves to incorporate commercial based Open Source (OS)/Publicly Available Information (PAI) Cybersecurity and Miscellaneous tools to enhance their product lines. The cybersecurity and miscellaneous OS/PAI tools we are seeking to acquire are license/subscription based and accessed through a web or cloud-based solution that is a commercially available off the shelf (COTS) platform. ONI and NAVINTEL will not consider any software/hardware-based solutions nor entertain offers to create or build a solution.

The purpose of this SSA is to identify U.S. based or U.S. subsidiary sources offering licenses or subscriptions to a web or cloud-based COTS solution that provides users with access to commercial OS/PAI cybersecurity and miscellaneous solutions. Miscellaneous OS/PAI tools consists of tools that fall outside of the categories for tools specifically tailored for cybersecurity, signature reduction, maritime domain awareness, geospatial or signals intelligence, and business intelligence.

Sources must be able to demonstrate their solution’s conformity to the cybersecurity recommendations of the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Special Publication 800-53. Sources will be required to disclose the details of the data feeds into their OS/PAI platform. Viable sources must have an existing web or cloud-based portal that is accessible from any Unclassified Department of Defense network.
