MOSA is not just about open architectures like SOSA, FACE, or CMOSS, but it also involves how those initiatives and standards can applied across all domains – air, sea, land, space, cyber, and spectrum – to create a MOSA ecosystem. Such an ecosystem enables the DoD to deploy capability more quickly...

PUFs, physically unclonable functions, are mixed-signal circuits which rely on variations unique to a specific chip in order to self-generate a digital “fingerprint.” These fingerprints can be used as the basis of cryptographic keys. While that’s useful, the real power of PUFs is leveraging their un...
