Securboration has been awarded a contract from the Army Research Laboratory for assessment of Network Centric Operations (NCO). In this effort, Securboration is working with the University of Texas, El Paso to evaluate the information sharing needs for agencies involved in efforts such as counter terrorism, border security, and stability and reconstruction. This includes evaluating the development, testing, and operational deployment of NCO systems to meet these requirements.
The U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) and the Air Force SBIR Transition Support Program (Commercialization Pilot Program) have cooperatively awarded Securboration a $1.15M contract for development of a Cyber Semantic Account Management Service (C-SAMS). C-SAMS will automate time consuming and ad hoc measures that are now in place within the Global C4 Coordination Center (GCCC) to identify and respond to potential cyber-attack. This work is the continuation of an Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Phase II SBIR, Semantic Policy Broker (SEMPBro), which focuses on specification and implementation of an organization’s policies through the use of semantic models. Under the C-SAMS contract SEMPBro will be enhanced to learn an organization’s true “operational policies” by augmenting explicitly stated policy with observed actual user behavior. These “operational policies” are then used in operational settings to monitor user activity for compliance with organization norms, as well as user specific characteristics. The C-SAMS award has commitments from USTRANSCOM for two years of follow on development, each funded with an additional $500K.
