Responsibilities

Our nation has entered a new era that brings profound changes to the way the National Security Agency conducts its mission. The explosion of the World Wide Web has created a need for the Computer Network Operations (CNO) mission. This very important mission is comprised of three major parts: network defense, network attack, and computer network exploitation. In order to carry out these functions NSA is looking for people who are highly skilled and impassioned about winning the war in cyberspace. These are NOT your average Computer Science or Engineering jobs!

The Computer Network Operations (CNO) Development Programs provide the opportunity for a select group of individuals to further develop their skills in the technical areas supporting CNO. CNO consists of Computer Network Defense (CND), Computer Network Exploitation (CNE) and Computer Network Attack (CNA). The goal of the programs is to develop a cadre of technical leaders who will enable the DoD's and the military services capabilities to lead the way in CNO.

The CNO Development Program consists of two independent programs each with the same focus area. These programs are technically demanding rotational opportunities over a 3-year period with a follow-on assignment individually tailored to best capitalize on individual expertise. Participants will each have a senior mentor and choice opportunities to work in high visibility organizations with the latest technologies. Each program consists of core training that will last for 3 months.

Graduates from these programs are aggressively sought after because of their in depth knowledge and breadth of experiences.

Degrees in Information Technology, Information Systems, Information Security, Networking (Systems Administration), and Information Assurance may be considered relevant if the programs contain, at minimum, a concentration of courses in the following foundational CS areas: algorithms; computer architecture (not network architecture); programming methodologies and languages; data structures; logic and computation; and upper-level mathematics (for example, calculus, discrete mathematics).

Relevant experience must be in engineering hardware and/or software over their lifecycle (i.e., requirements analysis, design, development, implementation, testing, integration, deployment/installation, and maintenance), programming, vulnerability analysis, penetration testing, computer forensics, and/or systems engineering. Completion of military training in a relevant area such as JCAC (Joint Cyber Analysis course) will be considered towards the relevant experience requirement (i.e., 24-week JCAC course will count as 6 months of experience).
