Abstract
The solicitation calls for "approaches for providing a safe environment for detecting software vulnerabilities and malicious code. Determine how these approaches might be employed in typical development/sustainment processes and facilities." The approach we believe will return the greatest benefit with a low cost is converting a Windows (or Linux as the sponsor requires) PC into an instrumented system for detecting malicious code, which we label the "validation machine. "This machine will use a myriad of software and system tracking applications to gather input, output, and execution data from the software seeking validation. This data will be amalgamated into a single log repository. Intelligent agent technologies, such as Bayesian networks and data mining agents, will then be employed to evaluate this data and identify realized or potential weaknesses, vulnerabilities, and security breaches within the software.
