  5. Real-Time Authentication to Counter Caller ID Spoofing

    SBC: Illuma Labs Inc.            Topic: HSB0171003

    Vulnerabilities in telecommunications channels are being exploited at alarming rates by malicious attackers to commit fraud, perpetrate scams, and organize data breaches. In addition to financial losses incurred by corporations and taxpayers, attacks against government agencies such as the DHS can severely compromise national security. A common element of these attacks is the attacker's ability to ...

  6. A Layered Service Provider/Customer Approach to Call Spoofing

    SBC: SECURELOGIX CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0171003

    Our proposed solution is based upon three primary concepts. First, we define the Authentication Engine, which is a cloud-based service that is passed simple information about a call, masks the complexity of using a variety of techniques to detect spoofing or authenticate the caller, and returns a score and actionable category for a very wide variety of scenarios. Second, we are making heavy use of ...

  7. Resilient Wayside Structures and Passenger Car Survivability

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: 171FR3

    Additional passenger fatalities and injuries can occur during derailments due to interaction with wayside structures, such as catenary poles, bridge abutments, and discontinuities in third rails at highway grade crossings. Resilient wayside structures can reduce these risks, by lessening the amount of intrusion, penetration, and passenger motion. PEC and Arup will work together to develop resilien ...
