Contract: W31P4Q-06-C-0185
Award Amount: $69,316.00
 

Abstract:

As warfare becomes more technology bound there is a growing threat of misappropriation of software that could disable or hinder US military activities. Twister provides a theoretically sound mechanism for combining anti-tamper technology in a manner that is resistant to both patching and analysis. This approach makes the individual elimination of applied protections significantly more expensive. Twister leverages a number of other ATC technologies most notably ATC's Tornado, an automatic source-code obfuscator.
