Abstract
Our proposal specifically addresses the stated requirements of the solicitation; we will develop and deploy tools, methods, and models for a low profile sensor capable of distinguishing a system's operational environment from a test environment in order to defend against "black box" attacks. . The proposed EDAptiver SAMURAIT solution builds on previous EDAptive Computing, Inc (ECI) knowledge and technology - itself innovative - to include a robust, non-interference, adaptable solution to providing anti-tamper monitoring of the environment under which a critical asset is functioning. The resulting capabilities will result in a "design for anti-tamper" methodology and tools with which we will monitor and protect a critical system component from extensive testing within a simulated environment, known as black box testing. The SAMURAI solution, complete with anti-tamper protection in the form of system monitoring and obfuscation, will then be synthesized and deployed within U.S. weapon systems. ECI will employ adaptive learning techniques to ensure robustness of the solution for a variety of military components and systems. Prior experience and new research has already shown that ECI's innovative tools suite will be clearly adaptive to OSD needs and operational conditions.
