  1. Firmware Automated Analysis at Scale with Testing

    SBC: Red Balloon Security, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181008

    The firmware running on mobile, embedded, and Internet of things devices is often treated as a blackbox by organizations. These firmware images can contain a myriad of n-day vulnerabilities, both malicious and unintentional backdoors, and other unwanted functionality. Unfortunately, analyzing these firmware images is a difficult and time-consuming task as each firmware can be packed with layers of ...

  2. Improved Human Systems for Computed TomographySpeed of Image Review

    SBC: IDSS Holdings, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181006

    IDSS in partnership with Tufts University Human Factors Engineering Program, a leader in Engineering Phycology, proposes to study CT screening system operator burden and reduce image review time by reviewing and making improvements to the GUI and the current man-machine interaction and perform limited prototyping of potential improvement to the operator interface and toolset.

  3. A Secure, Mobile Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Internet-of-Things (IoT) Video/Audio Interoperability Device (VAID)

    SBC: BALFOUR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: HSB0161001

    In an emergency or special event, First Responders need to leverage existing/available video and audio feeds from surveillance systems already deployed at the site. This audio/video connectivity must be achieved rapidly and easily as first responders arrive, and should also include access to valuable mobile/wireless audio/video feeds that become available during the emergency/event. Balfour Tech ...

  4. Malware Prediction

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: HSB0161003

    GrammaTech will create the CodeSurfer/INSIGHT tool to address the problem of understanding the evolution of malware characteristics and anticipating future malware evolution. INSIGHT will build on these capabilities: (a) GrammaTech's binary analysis tools as enhanced during the DARPA RAPID project, extending it with more sophisticated component identification, type inference, representations of so ...

  5. Hybrid Prediction for Embedded Malware

    SBC: Red Balloon Security, Inc.            Topic: HSB0161003

    Predicting malware trends and designing defenses to defeat the next generation of malware is difficult but necessary in order to significantly increase the cost to attackers of developing malware and executing successful attacks. Without such malware trend predictions, we will continually be defending against yesterday's attacks and will remain unprepared for new threats. Embedded devices are beco ...

  6. Multi-Abstractions System Reasoning Infrastructure toward Achieving Adaptive Computing Systems

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: 16OATS003

    Software is a critical part of modern infrastructure. The nation's industry and government bear significant costs due to cyber attacks that steal data or otherwise disrupt operations. Software-based systems are too complex to be protected by a single layer of defense such as a perimeter firewall. Instead, operators need layered defenses that detect, inhibit and even block attackers who breach the ...

  7. A Scalable, Mobile M2M/SDP/IoT Architecture to Connect First Responders at the Incident Site

    SBC: BALFOUR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: HSB0141005

    First Responders need to leverage automated (M2M machine-to-machine), mobile connectivity at an incident site. With connectivity automated through M2M network technology, responders would have much improved situational awareness, and can effectively focus their complete attention on the necessary emergency response actions. We propose to develop a futuristic automated M2M prototype system/architec ...

  8. NEXT GENERATION SCALABLE SOLID STATE THERMAL NEUTRON DETECTOR

    SBC: Solid State Detection Devices, LLC            Topic: HSB0151009

    Solid State Detection Devices LLC proposes to develop a new commercially viable next generation thermal neutron detecting system based on well established silicon integrated circuit technology. Hexagonal holes in honeycomb fashion with depth greater than 50 microns and vertical side walls will be fabricated on bulk silicon wafers of right conductivity using a combination of deep reactive ion etchi ...

  9. Automated Embedded Vulnerability Identification and Exploitation Mitigation System Using FRAK, Symbiote and Autotomic Binary Structure Randomization

    SBC: Red Balloon Security, Inc.            Topic: HSB0142002

    We propose to implement a novel Embedded Live-Hardening framework and associated algorithms to combine the state-of-the-art in static firmware vulnerability analysis and mitigation with a suite of novel dynamic defensive techniques powered by Red Balloon Security's software Symbiote technology. While Symbiotes have traditionally been used directly to enforce dynamic firmware integrity attestation ...
