Abstract
The Navy and Marine Corps currently protect their Data-at-Rest (DAR) storage using Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) encryption technology. PKI protects data based on a single security key pair allowing only a single individual to decrypt the data; thus making it unsuitable for an environment where multiple individuals, satisfying an access policy, would be able to decrypt the data. Therefore, Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) and Arizona State University (ASU) propose the Data Encryption utilizing Access Policies (DEAP) product which leverages Attribute-Based Encryption (ABE) to encrypt data based on access policies rather than individual key pairs. DEAP will be designed to work in coordination with existing DAR products to automatically protect data stored on any device (e.g. local hard drives, portable USB media, and network storage).
