NCI: The mission of the Command, Control, Communication, Computers, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) Center, Space and Terrestrial Communications Directorate (S&TCD), Sustaining Base Network Assurance Branch (SBNAB) is to provide soldiers and operational partners with a technological edge through a broadly based, multidisciplinary program of research, exploratory development, analysis, and operations with the critical mass, synergy, and flexibility to satisfy future technological needs. A second major area is to protect information systems and networks and increase resiliency in the face of advanced and persistent cyber warfare capable adversaries which could disrupt, deny, degrade, or destroy information system resources or the information itself and/or interfering with the delivery of essential mission services upon which we depend, and set the stage for more destructive cyber-attacks.
Web Assessment SME - A Web Assessment SME will conduct formal security assessments on web-based applications. The Web Assessment SME will use both automated tools and manual techniques, including penetration testing tools and other hacking methods, in order to enumerate vulnerabilities in web technologies. After each assessment, the Web Assessment SME will prepare a formal report that highlights mission impact and ranking of each finding by severity. Web Assessment SMEs will also work with web site administrators after the assessments to recommend strategies to mitigate the vulnerabilities, and harden the DoDIN sites. In short, a Web Assessment SME are ethical hackers that find the vulnerabilities in DoD web sites before our adversaries do.
Work requires in-depth knowledge of both Linux and Windows operating systems, networking, network protocols, databases, scripting languages, and some programming. It also requires extensive knowledge of web technologies: PHP, CSS, CMS, Apache, Burp, Metasploit, etc.; keeping up with the latest vulnerabilities and versions of all these technologies, and keeping up with new technologies, products, and hacking techniques. While they will often run pre-determined types of tests, they also design their own tests a large portion of the time, which requires creativity and imagination, along with a superb level of technical knowledge and know-how.
