Abstract
The US Army has identified a need for a solution to correct problems that arise during the use of stateful inspection devices in asymmetrically routed networks. These stateful inspection devices, such as firewalls and intrusion detection systems, monitor communications sessions in order to provide network security and identify malicious user intent. Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) will leverage its extensive experience in network technology to develop the innovative Plug-and-play Adaptor for Stateful Inspection Devices (PASID). This adaptor will plug into existing networks and provide a means for communicating relevant stateful data to multiple stateful inspection devices. In doing so, the devices will have the information that is needed to function properly. During Phase I analysis, ATC has determined PASID’s design to be feasible. The objective of the Phase II effort is to implement a functional prototype of PASID that will be demonstrated in a realistic environment.
