Overview Edit

The Defense Industrial Base (DIB) comprises the public and private organizations and corporations that support DoD through the provision of defense technologies, weapons systems, policy and strategy development, and personnel. To increase protection of DIB networks, DoD launched the Defense Industrial Base Cyber Security and Information Assurance (CS/IA) program in 2007.

DIB Pilot Program Edit

Under the DIB pilot program, DoD provided classified malicious signatures that it had identified to industrial defense contractors, expanding their set of known threats. DoD disseminated the signature data by hard copy to defense contractors, who then entered the signature information into their systems manually, rather than through a secure method of automatic transfer.

The DIB pilot only involved a few dozen companies that met a set of security and operational requirements.
