Award Amount:
$99,030.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator:
Joseph Sharkey, Senior Engineer
Abstract:
This project will examine the feasibility of using alternative modes of execution on x86 processors as a means of providing protection for sensitive applications. The research will aim to answer two main questions: 1) can alternate modes of execution provide an environment that is suitable for… More

Countering Covert Access with SecureCore

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,742.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator:
Joseph Sharkey, Senior Research Scientist
Abstract:
The x86 architecture's inherent security model has a very large attack surface due to the fact that a large amount of software runs in a privileged level and has unfettered access to critical system state. Software used for data piracy or exfiltration, stealthy execution, malicious alteration of… More

Untrusted Data Inspection Capability

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$94,334.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Eric Thayer, Senior Research Engineer – (315) 336-3306
Abstract:
Current processes for transporting electronic files across security domains limit the allowable file formats to a small, well-recognized set. The introduction of physical media into or out of secure areas requires manual analyses and multiple diagnostic scans. With the pace of innovation in… More

Enterprise Data Protection Against Exfiltration

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$149,935.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Richard Gloo, Principal Investigator – (315) 336-3306
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Enterprise wide data exfiltration will be prevented by designing and implementing a method to protect files based on logical group membership. Anyone outside that group without the group key(s) will be unable to decrypt the data. Localized Encryption Groups (LEG) will provide an automated… More

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$149,935.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Rian Quinn, Principal Investigator – (315) 336-3306
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: As networked computing becomes more and more critical to the US government and US corporations, it is crucial to protect them against new and unknown threats. The field of trusted computing has grown to provide assurances that the software on a computing system has not been tampered. … More

$749,961.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Rick Gloo, Principal Investigator – (315) 336-3306
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Enterprise wide data exfiltration will be prevented by designing and implementing a method to protect files based on logical group membership. Anyone outside that group without the group key(s) will be unable to decrypt the data. LEG will provide an automated approach to ensure… More

Split-Cloud for Enabling Trust (SCEnT)

Award Year / Program / Phase:
