Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD09-IA1
Budget: 02/11/11 - 04/08/13

Our proposed approach to computer security is proactive. We collect data through a set of sensors which is used to adapt to an attack, while protecting the operational integrity of the system under its protection.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD09-IA1
Budget: 11/16/09 - 08/16/10

Rather than continuing to approach cyber security problems in a reactive fashion, ASD proposes to move to a proactive posture; anticipating and eliminating vulnerabilities while also being prepared to effectively and rapidly defend against attacks. Our approach collects data about the attacker as well as the attack, which it processes in real ti...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD07-I04
Budget: 11/04/08 - 11/04/10

SHIELD is a defense-in-depth multi-layered architecture that is suitable for a GIG end-node based upon COTS technology. The architecture contains the following layers: 1. A set of application software and data protection techniques, which utilize an out-of-band secure coprocessor and its reconfigurable hardware. 2. An in-band kernel module that ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD08-IA1
Budget: 06/30/08 - 12/30/08

ASD proposes to develop and integrate an Application Partitioning Toolkit (APT). The APT provides an environment for the partitioning, analysis and the construction of a distributed application. The initial target of the toolkit is the OSD06-IA7 secure coprocessor and application monitor. The toolkit consists of the following components: 1. A Wi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD07-I04
Budget: 10/23/07 - 10/23/08

AFCO Systems Development s (ASD s) solution will protect a host system by using various autonomic techniques. These techniques will resist, detect, respond, and where possible, repair the damage caused by an adversary. Current technology does not provide the type of protection that is necessary against an attacker with virtually infinite perso...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD06-IA7
Budget: 01/29/07 - 01/29/08

Computer systems are lacking adequate security properties as demonstrated by the increase in system failure and service disruptions over the last few years. In response to an evolving threat environment AFCO Systems Development (ASD) proposes an adaptable and field upgradeable Global Information Grid (GIG) System Security Monitor (SSM) that con...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: H-SB05.2-004-2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

The primary objective of this project is to design and develop a rootkit detection system that also has the capability to protect itself. AFCO Systems Development (ASD) proposes to advance the state of system security monitoring technology and meet its objective by developing a PCI card that combines coprocessor based firmware, reconfigurable co...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB052-011
Budget: 12/08/06 - 03/06/09

Embedded systems are commonly deployed in applications where reliability is critical to operations. More recently the interest in sensor networks has added a requirement for remote access, often over openly accessible or penetrable networks. This creates a need for a defensible embedded platform whose robustness is preserved in the face of exter...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB052-011
Budget: 11/29/05 - 07/31/06

Commercial and Military embedded systems are lacking security properties as demonstrated by the increase in system failures and service disruptions. These breaches are caused by the inability of the operating system to recognize and/or prevent intrusion by unauthorized agents. A family of reliable operating systems (EROS) has been developed an...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: 2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

AFCO Systems Development proposes a PCI based system security monitor that combines an adaptable and update-capable platform with remote management and the capability to examine the host?s memory. The ability to scan the host memory is used to detect an infected computer whose operating system has been subverted. In particular the proposal targe...
