ABSTRACT: Assured Information Security, Inc. (AIS) proposes Endpoint-Operated Link-assured Security (EOLuS), an effort to develop a product with the capability for realizing continuous end-to-end trust (EtET) in a dynamic network a network in which every client would verify and monitor the trustworthiness of its peers prior to communicating sensitive information. After the successful completion of EOLuS, servers will be protected from rogue clients almost instantly after they have been compromised. With EOLuS, networks will automatically establish and maintain EtET, allowing a single network to securely provide information of different security postures to disparate users without the worry of leakage or subjugation. EOLuS also realizes non-binary trust measurements, allowing a graceful degradation to ensure mission completion even in the event of cyber-attack. BENEFIT: EOLuS provides a system in which all network endpoints communicate trust measurements and make trust decisions based on mission needs and trust level. EOLuS will provide the Air Force and other users with a novel and effective method to realize end-to-end trust within operational environments. AIS will work closely with their partners to secure integration opportunities with existing security solutions, such as the McAfee (now Intel Security) product line.
