Title: Untrusted Data Inspection Capability

Contract: FA8750-11-C-0086
Award Amount: $94,334.00


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 information formats and the volume of data that is shared across such environments increasing every day, these scanning processes have become a barrier to productivity and a risk to security. In response to this situation, AIS, Inc., proposes an innovative technique that could expedite the inspection of digital media for cross-domain security policy violations. The Untrusted Data Inspection Capability (UDIC) will perform automated processing of complex file formats and data in such a way that complex (perhaps compressed) file formats can be inspected in a more secure, reliable, and efficient fashion.
