  1. Preventing Program Hijacking via Static and Dynamic Analyses

    SBC: Zephyr Software, LLC            Topic: OSD11IA5

    To hijack the execution of a program, an attacker must overwrite the value of a return address or a function pointer (broadly defined). To prevent program hijacking, our product will provide a layered defense of these two targets, including deterministic and randomization defenses, with the ability in many cases to continue execution after a hijacking attempt is prevented. Our product toolkit incl ...

  2. Toolkit for Managing Evaluation and Testing for Red Team Investigations of Cyber Security (METRICS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD12IA1

    Adversaries are becoming increasingly proficient at cyber attacks against command and control infrastructure. Maintaining security requires high-fidelity assessments of software services, e.g., through exercises in which Systems Under Test are subjected t

  3. Autonomous Sensing and Deciding Framework Processor

    SBC: BLACK RIVER SYSTEMS COMPANY INC            Topic: OSD12LD1

    Our objective is to develop an innovative cognitive knowledge-aided information processing framework to take very high rate intelligence data streams over wide areas and autonomously highlight Areas-of-Interest (AOIs) and targets for the image analyst without a priori knowledge of the area or location of the individual high interest targets. By using 100s of JADE based intelligent agents in Phase ...

  4. Event Attribute Recognition and Labeling (EARL)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: OSD12LD5

    Existing information extraction technology can only partially address the problem of exploiting unreadably-large amounts text. When discussion of events is limited to simple, past-tense, factual descriptions of events, current NLP-based systems can ident

  6. A System Using Knowledge of Narratives for Optimizing Workspaces to Enhance Reasoning (KNOWER)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD12LD4

    The wealth of data provided by modern information fusion (IF) tools exceeds the ability of intelligence analysts to effectively process, exploit, and disseminate actionable intelligence. This issue arises because these IF tools define information value a

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

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: OSD12IA2

    A modern computer system consists of a complex combination of applications cooperating with the operating system and each other to accomplish a mission. Components of the system are subject to disruption from accidental malfunctions and deliberate attacks

  8. Active Software Defense to Reduce Threat Capability Effectiveness

    SBC: Power Fingerprinting, Inc            Topic: OSD11IA6

    In order to better protect critical infrastructure from cyber attacks, perimeter and passive defenses must be complemented with an active defense mechanism which elevates the risks, or costs, a potential attacker will face. The effectiveness of an active defense mechanism, however, is ultimately limited by its ability to detect threats fast, accurately, and reliably. For this Phase II project, we ...

  9. Decision Support for Anomaly Detection and Recovery for Unmanned System (ADRUS)

    SBC: Knexus Research Corp.            Topic: OSD12AU1

    Deployment of unmanned systems continues to expand across a wide range of missions; for example, logistics and resupply missions, force application and protection, and improving battlespace awareness. Presently these unmanned systems run at the lowest of four possible levels of autonomy, that is, in a teleoperated mode, and each system typically requires multiple operators. To address this proble ...

  10. AWAKE: Adaptive Workspace for Analyst Knowledge & Engagement

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: OSD12AU5

    There is an increasing need for fast and accurate analysis of large volumes of disparate data containing critical information. Existing tools for information search, retrieval, and exploitation are inadequate because the tools have limited ability to (1) help the analyst understand the semantics within the information, (2) reveal the relationships between the information and the analytic task, or ...
