  1. Virtualization and Static Analysis to Detect Memory Overwriting Vulnerabilities

    SBC: Zephyr Software, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Memory overwriting vulnerabilities (buffer overflow, format string, double free, integer overflow, etc.) continue to plague commercial and government software, providing avenues for attackers to gain unauthorized control over computer systems. Testing tools are needed that will find vulnerabilities so that fixes can be applied before deployment. Existing vulnerability analyses often rely exclusive ...

  2. Intelligent Bio-Adaptive Team Training System

    SBC: Human Bionics            Topic: N/A

    As we face new formidable challenges in the area of global asymmetric warfare, the DHS must be able to rapidly train and test those individuals responsible for screening of persons that may wish to bring harm to the U.S. and its allies. Thus there is a vast need to train individuals faster and to improve training outcomes, possibly by training in teams of screeners working together to improve thei ...

  3. Run Time Tools Output Integration Framework

    SBC: Data Access Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses the key issue in the normalization of software assurance information: how to integrate the vulnerability findings reported by multiple vulnerability detection tools. The normalization will provide normalized, consistent reporting on type of identified weakness (alignment with CWE) as well as normalized, consistent reporting on location and trace of identified weakness withi ...

  4. Collaborative Human-Animal Discrimination for Unattended Ground Sensors


    Effective human-animal discrimination happens collectively at all levels of an UGS system. The ability to classify a target from ootsteps alone as human versus non-human given a single modality and sensor is challenging, thus a collaborative network effort increases the system Probability of Detection (Pd) and minimizes Probability of False Alarm (Pfa). IWT proposes leveraging inter-UGS communicat ...

  5. SNP-based Desktop Biometric Device for Rapid, Low-cost Verification of Identity and Kinship and Confirmation of Identity by Physical Traits

    SBC: PARABON COMPUTATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DNA has the potential to provide vast amounts of biometric information. However, the current method of analyzing DNA - which produces biometric signatures from sequences of "junk" DNA called short tandem repeats (STRs) - falls far short of realizing this potential. STR signatures are information-poor and the technology required to produce them is terminally incapable of supporting fast, automated ...

  6. Tanker Survey Vehicle


    The Department of Homeland Security is responsible for maintaining the integrity of our borders and preventing attacks within our country through the use of trade and immigration laws coupled with various tools to monitor for the threat of illegal cross-border activity. This includes numerous points of entry over land, air, and sea. As the threat grows increasingly sophisticated and innovative, so ...

  7. Modular Frequency Extenders for Vector Network Analyzers

    SBC: VIRGINIA DIODES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Modular frequency extenders will be developed for Vector Network Analyzers to extend their frequency range throughout the band from 100 GHz through 1THz with excellent dynamic range (100dB) and the capability for full four port measurements. The extenders will rely on VDI's full waveguide band frequency multipliers and mixers that utilize planar, integrated Schottky diode circuits. The modular nat ...

  8. Evidence Preserving Hard Disk Unlocking System

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Luna Innovations will design and develop a hard disk unlocking system that is easily usable by forensic technicians while preserving evidentiary integrity. Our solution will be robust even against anticipated future drive features and drives modified by criminals to have certain anti-tamper properties. This is important as it is nearly certain that manufacturers or criminals will develop such coun ...
