Research Institution
The goal of this SBIR is to develop technologies that will segregate data of various security classification levels using approved hardware and software techniques and simplify data access and usage for the sailor. This effort is designed to increase the productivity of the user by removing or automating the barriers currently involved with accessing data at different classification levels simultaneously. This paper will describe a series of solutions based on Trusted Operating Systems, Centralized Data Storage, and Cloud Computing architectures that will result in a novel data & usage model with greater transparency to the users. In this proposal, we discuss a detailed plan to develop a prototype application capable of creating a secure and open architecture solution for real-time multi-level data fusion and information guarding on a tactical network. This solution will consist of three basic tenets: a secure virtualization of hosts and existing software in a trusted operating system, a multi-level data storage technology (MLDST) for secure centralization of persistent data, and an investigation of real-time software-based data guarding techniques for multi-level data fusion and communication.
