  3. Detection of Counterfeit Commodity Goods

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: HSB0132005

    In the Phase I program, TIAX LLC developed a detection methodology that was able to measure significant differences between pairs of counterfeit and authentic products in four different product categories. Establishing the proof-of-concept of this technique creates the potential for a new detection methodology that can be utilized at a port of entry by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to i ...

  4. Autonomous Detection and Healing of Silent Vulnerabilities

    SBC: BlueRISC Inc            Topic: HSB0142002

    BlueRISC's proposed solution provides a fundamentally new approach to enable autonomous detection of exploitation attempts as well as healing of silent vulnerabilities. It follows a hybrid approach consisting of (i) new static silent vulnerability point and associated path pre-characterization concepts, and (ii) the insertion of minimal and low-overhead runtime support enabled by the vulnerability ...

  6. Software-based Dynamic Mobile Trusted Module (SW-dMTM)

    SBC: BlueRISC Inc            Topic: HSB0132002

    The proposed SW-dMTM mobile security solution is lean and fully-software-based. The goal is to provide the required Roots of Trust (RoTs) and trusted security services via a fully software implementation while maintaining the heightened level of assurance typically only achieved through additional, security-centric hardware. This will be achieved by building a solution that is not only compatibl ...

  7. Portable Laser Hazard Identification and Monitoring System

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: HSB0142004

    Laser beams present potentially serious hazards to the human eye. Retinal damage can occur for laser eye exposure to milliwatts power levels. The purpose of this proposed program is to develop a portable system for detecting and measuring radiant exposure resulting from laser beams, and to determine whether the detected radiant exposure levels exceed established maximum permissible exposure (MPE ...

  8. Low-Noise, High-Efficiency Geiger Photodiode for Quantum Cryptography

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The mechanics of single photons can be used to entangle information carry quantum states, allowing for quantum computation or random number generation. Quantum communication utilizes the quantum nature of single-photons to retain information, particularly in the form of quantum key distribution protocols. High-efficiency, low-noise single photon detection at high efficiency is critical for the app ...
