The Leap-Ahead Initiative, was set in motion by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) in April 2008 as a component of the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative. That effort solicited public input and received more than 230 responses focused on how to change the cybersecurity landscape. These were distilled into five fundamental “game-changing” concepts that were then discussed by over 150 innovators from the academic and commercial sectors at the National Cyber Leap Year Summit held in August 2009 in Arlington, Virginia. Finally, the outcomes of the summit were distilled into the research themes articulated in Trustworthy Cyberspace: Strategic Plan for the Federal Cybersecurity Research and Development Program.
