VPNs and TIC 3.0 don't mesh

TIC 3.0 rollout is causing agencies from virtual private networks (VPNs) to more robust identity management solutions, TIC Program Manager Sean Connelly said last week at the IT Modernization Summit. VPNs really don't work in modern networks because they allow inherited trust to be embedded in architecture and agencies are migrating to a zero-trust security model that takes inherited trust out of the digital system. “When we talk TIC 3.0, [VPNs are] really not even being discussed as a modern solution for a lot of those architectures,” Connelly said. “So you’re scaling away from the VPN, itself.” Dave Nyczepir has more.

DOD's data efforts accelerating

Also at the IT Modernization Summit, Department of Defense CDO Dave Spirk detailed the department's accelerating data efforts. Spirk said he’s planning to release documents that will help define the ways the military should use data and implement a strategy around it. “With the direct support of Deputy Secretary of Defense Dr. Kathleen Hicks and her senior support team, not only are we on the path, but the expectation is we will accelerate,” Spirk said.

Whistle blown on DIU leadership

A former CFO of the Defense Innovation Unit has alleged that leadership created a culture of skirting the ethical limits of Department of Defense contracting, hiring and personnel regulations. Bob Ingegneri recently laid out 15 allegations of what he saw as unethical behavior in an official complaint to the DOD inspector general. Ingegneri alleges that during his time with DIU, Director Mike Brown used his position to hire people close to him and increase payments to contractors in his circle. Jackson spoke with Ingegneri.

Free .gov domains

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency said last week it will drop all registration fees for the .gov top-level domain through the end of the current fiscal year. Wit the waiver, state and local governments will not have to pay the $400 the federal government typically charges for a .gov domain, which had long been considered a roadblock for small organizations. "Having no fee will aid governments, especially local governments, in taking the next step to make sure their websites are more secure," said Meredith Ward, policy director at NASCIO, which has pushed for changes to make the .gov program less expensive.
