To address the HSARPA need for a strong and reliable identification and authentication (I&A) mechanism for secure and reliable systems by enabling authentication of all system components and individuals, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Secure Identification and Authentication Mechanism (SIAM) technology. Proposed technology is based on the implementation of unique fingerprints for all system components and a novel unbreakable bit-level encrypting method. SIAM fingerprinting is software to unbreakably encrypt the component's data, thus providing reliable component-level I&A; eliminating the security gaps of traditional methods; and detecting/preventing system misuse, intrusion, and exploitation. In Phase I, POC will demonstrate the feasibility of SIAM by developing and testing a system TRL 4 prototype based on existing IT technologies that will simulate enterprise level architecture and include all basic secure system components. In Phase II, POC plans to develop a full-scale TRL 6 system prototype capable of allowing reliable I&A for all system components, providing secure sensitive information sharing, and improving the management and distribution of electronic security policies and roles with a reduced system cost. SIAM will benefit government and commercial applications, including federal and border security systems, financial services, complex global enterprise networks, and Internet security.
