NEW YORK, July 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The American National Institute of Standards (ANSI) has announced a final call for entries for its workshop on Global Supply Chain Security for Microelectronics Standardization, organized on behalf of the US Department of Defense (DoD). The workshop takes place July 27-29 at the headquarters of Booz Allen Hamilton8283 Greensboro Drive, McLean, Virginia. The event has reached capacity for in-person registration, but registration for remote attendance is still available.
The workshop is designed to evaluate standardization activities that will help DOD fulfill its mandate under Section 224 of the National Defense Authorization Act Fiscal Year 2020 to establish security standards of the supply chain for microelectronics products and services purchased by the DoD. The workshop extends to commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) devices. Custom devices—ASICs, systems on a chip, DoD-specific bitstreams for FPGAs—are not the focus of this workshop.
The first day of the workshop program will be staged with a Report on Responses to Request for Information (RFI), DoD Section 224 framework, and panel discussions with standards development organizations , federal agencies and industry. Day two will feature concurrent small group discussions on three areas of supply chain risk management: procurement management, information and intellectual property (IP) protection, and secure design. The workshop will conclude with a half-day session for workshop reports, open discussion and next steps.
