watch, America’s Sailors and Marines have been where it matters, when it matters - re- balancing to the Asia-Pacifi c, where much of America’s future will be written; reinforcing our longstanding NATO allies; supporting our forces ashore in the turbulent Middle East; and providing humanitarian assistance and disaster relief the world over, in a way that only America can and does do,” said Carter. Before concluding, Carter’s remarks

worldview and the optimism he has for the future. “I think that deep in our guts we sense


a shiſt in the world, and we sense that once again it will be vitally important to protect our interests on the seas,” said Richardson. “As an American and as your CNO, I am very optimistic. Because this is exactly the environment in which Americans thrive, and we will thrive.” In his farewell speech, Greenert, aſt er

right team,” said Greenert. “Adm. Richard- son has all that it takes, but he also has what it takes, and that is Dana [his wife], and they are ready to meet those challenges.”


A New Defense for Navy Ships: Protec- tion from Cyber Attacks


By Bob Freeman, Offi ce of Naval Research Public Aff airs


ARLINGTON, Va. (NNS) -- T e U.S. Navy is developing the Resilient Hull, Mechanical, and Electrical Security (RHIMES) system, a cyber protection system designed to make its shipboard mechanical and electrical control systems resilient to cyber attacks, offi cials announced Sept. 17. For most people, the term “cyber secu-


rity” calls to mind stories of data theſt like the recent hacks of the OPM database, or network spying like the 2012 breach of the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet. But in this networked world, hackers


might also try to disable or take control of machines in our physical world-from large systems like electric power grids and indus- trial plants to transportations assets like cars, trains, planes or even ships at sea. T at’s where RHIMES can help. “T e purpose of RHIMES is to enable us


to fi ght through a cyber attack,” said Chief of Naval Research Rear Adm. Mat Winter. “T is technology will help the Navy protect its shipboard physical systems, but it may also have important applications to protect- ing our nation’s physical infrastructure.” Dr. Ryan Craven, a program offi cer of


the Cyber Security and Complex Soſt ware Systems Program in the Mathematics Com- puter and Information Sciences Division of the Offi ce of Naval Research, explained that RHIMES is designed to prevent an attacker
