To address the DHS need for new remote sensor data protection and anti-spoofing techniques, Intellisense Systems, Inc. proposes to develop a new Blockchain-based Anti-Spoofing and Integrity Protection (BASIP) system. This proposed BASIP is based on redactable blockchain-based data protection and challenge-response-based spoof detection. The BASIP will offer high resilience to sensor spoofing and manipulation in both cyber domain and physical domain, thus ensuring the quality and integrity of sensor data and preventing false data from being pushed upstream. In Phase I, Intellisense will demonstrate the feasibility of BASIP by conducting a proof-of-feasibility study, in which we will research and provide reported examples of spoofed sensor data including GPS sensor data and one other sensor data type, and the recommended mitigation strategies to be implemented in Phase II. Currently at techNlogy readiness level (TRL)-2, by the end of the Phase I effort, the BASIP will reach TRL-3. In Phase II, Intellisense plans to develop and test a prototype system, which will be demonstrated to verify that BASIP can resist spoofed and manipulated data in a simulated tactical/harsh/rugged environment, where sensors can be both physically and remotely compromised. The successful completion of this project at the end of Phase III will benefit the nation in both government and commercial sectors by enhancing the security of networked sensors and systems deployed. Commercial applications for this techNlogy include use in border patrol, surveillance, medical sensors, and transportation.
