NASA IV&V's Mission Protection Services is continuing to strengthen its threat research capability on NASA mission work to support investigations of cyber risks to missions. The interns will work with TRT members to:

Learn about end-to-end mission systems, covering strategic, operational, and tactical levels, to better understand potential risks and risk identification.
Work with other analytical functions in MPS and the larger IV&V facility to aid in the planning of analysis focus areas, utilizing TRT research.
Decipher and assess information regarding critical network implementation, such as on mission systems, etc.
Interpret technical information and create relevant security research questions.
Gather, process, and assimilate a wide variety of sources, such as public reports, mission artifacts, and other forms of data relative to areas of focus.
Conduct research into publicly reported vulnerabilities to support mission resiliency.
Interpret and connect security and risk related information to technical analysis.
Prepare written technical reports and presentations.
Identify, develop, or evaluate analytical tools and templates to advance the efficiency and effectiveness of the MPS Threat Research Team.
The interns will develop and apply skills in cybersecurity, networking, spacecraft + mission systems, technical analysis and/or current industry approaches to continue the development of TRT. As members of the team, interns will play an important role in integrating TRT's planning, services, and products into other IV&V functions to advance protection and security of NASA missions.
