What's the buzz about DARPA's Plan X?

The Pentagon's research arm is reaching out to the private sector, universities and  computer game makers for assistance developing technologies to boost its offensive cyber capabilities, reports The Washington Post.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency so-called Plan X is directed at giving the U.S. military the ability to launch devastating attacks in cyberspace and buttress cyber defenses to withstand expected counterattacks, the story said.

The $110 million research program, which is scheduled to last five years, will begin accepting proposals in the next few months, the story said.
