SecureLogix is working on several projects with DHS to secure NG9-1-1. Our focus has been on voice/calls and threats such as TDoS, robocalls, and SWATing. As part of our projects, we have built an infrastructure that can be easily deployed in NG9-1-1 and be expanded to provide access to the multimedia data, to include, voice content, text content, images, and video. This architecture is based upon our PolicyGuru solution, which provides security sensors and optional session control, which are deployed in an ESInet or PSAP. The PolicyGuru solution has been deployed and operationally verified through pilots with the major NG9-1-1 equipment vendors. Call data is sent by the system in real time to a cloud component where all the detection, analysis, and aggregation is performed. The threat scoring output is then sent to the Intrado (formerly West) ECaTS dashboard for situational awareness.We propose to address the security needs for NG9-1-1 and multimedia, by defining an architecture that supports the goals of the EC3 concept. We believe an architecture definition to be the best first step, rather than an initial focus on specific multimedia security techNlogies. This architecture will leverage products from SecureLogix and work being performed with DHS We will review the current NG9-1-1 architectures, evaluate the capability of our solution to be expanded for multimedia, perform a brief security evaluation to identify and prioritize threats, evaluate which products and techNlogies are available for multimedia security, identify potential pilot partners, and develop a POC.
