This report details key concerns discussed during the JFAC/DAU/CSIAC Software Assurance (SwA) Cyber Experiment (CYBEX) on 7 August 2018. In addition to evaluating newly developed SwA guides for program managers and developers, the exchange included addressing/bringing back foundational software/system engineering concepts to address the root of fundamental SwA issues as well as adopting common language in the areas of functionality and risk in order to identify issues early. Balances/trade-offs of those issues could normalize PM and system developer practices to ensure a resilient capability. The report also has several concerns of getting ahead of technology problems both in development, and the technology itself, especially as Agile concepts rapidly become critical for DoD to achieve technological dominance over its adversaries.
