An anonymous reader writes: The Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology, which advises both government and industry, has released an unusually fervent paper calling for NASA to push harder for funding for a massive cybersecurity project called Gryphon-X, which it claims has been lost in congressional confusion and administrative bureaucracy. Details are scarce as to how Gryphon-X could prevent cyber-incursions such as AnonSec's attempted drone sabotage in February, or even what new technologies might be on the table, but mentions that a significant new site would be built in Silicon Valley, and would include academic facilities. Extending Gryphon-X's scope far beyond NASA's security to a global role, the authors write that it would contain 'the fusion center, virtualization environment, and cyber-physical capabilities needed to analyze, prepare, and prevent threats like these from harming the nation, its organizations, or its people.'
