Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: OSD153-005
Budget: 09/27/16 - 03/29/17

The integration of physical and cyber systems have dramatically increased the vulnerability and the attack surface of cyber physical systems. The most common architecture to achieve the monitoring and control of the critical infrastructures is the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems. As SCADA systems become interconnected wi...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Army
Topic: A16A-T010
Budget: 09/01/16 - 02/18/17

Advances in multi-core computing systems, networking, mobile and smart devices, complex software and Internet have enabled the development of revolutionary capabilities that have served many fields across industry, military and academia. However, along with these advances, vulnerabilities in the computing systems stemming from failure to enforce...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-031
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

ABSTRACT:Current analysis, detection and protection systems are mainly static and manually intensive. At the same time, the complexity of networked computing systems, their dynamic behavior, and the availability of many heterogeneous devices that are static and mobile make these tools incapable to accurately characterize current states, detect m...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-055
Budget: 07/17/13 - 04/16/14

ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to identify and quantify trust metrics for all of the resources in a complex network infrastructure, determine a method for securing communications, and demonstrate the feasibility of our approach to quantify and adopt the end-to-end trust of components in large network infrastructures. The proposed ap...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF08-BT06
Budget: 03/07/11 - 03/07/12

ABSTRACT: We are experiencing grand challenges to ensure that cyberspace resources and services can effectively tolerate epidemic-style cybperattacks, and manage automatically its resources and services. Currently, there are no effective commercial technologies to secure and protect cyberspace resources and services; they are mainly labor intens...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD09-IA4
Budget: 01/04/11 - 01/07/13

Advances in Internet services and mobile wireless services will lead to the development of cyberspace services that are pervasive and ubiquitous and touch all aspects of our life. However, along with these advances, we are experiencing grand challenges to secure and protect our cyberspace resources and services so they can effectively tolerate e...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD09-IA4
Budget: 11/06/09 - 08/06/10

The increased complexity, scale and capabilities of current software elements make current security tools and technologies incapable to protect software against attacks. It also makes it very hard to proactively detect their vulnerabilities that might be exploited by attackers. Our focus will be to investigate and study the construction of a nea...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF08-BT06
Budget: 06/19/09 - 06/19/10

Cyber-attacks targeting our info-structure are being launched continuously from hostile locations. It is becoming apparent that securing US info-structure and preventing cyber-attacks cannot be met with existing techniques. By continuously monitoring and analyzing cyber-space applications, services, and resources and through the use of autonomic...
