While the IC’s research organization looks into adding security to cloud environments, in the here and now, intelligence agencies are sharing more data.
The General Services Administration's digital services unit, 18F, has rolled out more than 300 applications from federal agencies to its open source platform-as-a-service pilot program, cloud.gov, since October.
Diego Lapiduz, 18F's cloud.gov prject lead, declined to tell FedScoop about the details of many of the cloud projects. However, he said that most of them are projects 18F has designed in collaboratioon with and for other agencies, including the Education Department's College Scorecard and its own Federalist platform, which helps agencies design fast and reliable websites. Cloud.gov has also supported several White House projects, Lapiduz said.
