Cyber Hardening & Reverse Engineering

We use applied artificial intelligence (Ai), as well as custom-built products, to help clients harden platforms and control systems against cyber threats — even if they’re already deployed — without the need for costly and risky redesigns.

CYBER FROM THE PLATFORM PERSPECTIVE
There is broad activity underway to harden U.S. defense and intelligence systems against cyberattacks. Despite these efforts, there is not yet a holistic approach to platform-level cyber security that also takes machinery and control systems into account. Hackers can infiltrate these “non-critical” systems as a way to access other mission-essential systems and launch a cyberattack.

We are helping the Department of Defense (DoD) address this vulnerability by embedding cyber hardening across a variety of platforms and control systems that others leave unprotected— even if they’re already deployed. We apply artificial intelligence (Ai) and custom-built products to implement, operate, and maintain cyber hardening tools without the need for costly and risky redesigns. Through our full-lifecycle support, we help protect platform integrity and system uptime with the only complete, compliant cyber hardening suite for military platforms and control systems on the market.

OUR CYBER HARDENING SOLUTIONS
U

CYBER THREAT ASSESSMENT

Using scalable, web-based threat assessment tools, we provide specific Vulnerability Assessment and Mitigation (VAM) methodologies to systematically manage and ultimately mitigate Cyber network or infrastructure risk exposure, to minimize the effects of exploited risks, attribution and observables to preserve our clients’ interests and objectives in the organization

MACHINERY & ICS HARDENING

We provide bolt-on cyber hardening solutions for immediate deployment on machinery and industrial control systems as well as security engineering and system modules for lifecycle integration.
q

DETECTION & MITIGATION

With threat detection and response, we provide active protection for your equipment and networks, by ensuring attacks are blocked before a targeted system can be compromised or damaged.

INCIDENT RESPONSE

Our experts use leading industry tools and doctrine to investigate, remediate and quickly contain identified threats to ensure minimal impact to customer networks and data.

SHIPBOARD CYBER REVIEW

We recently performed a top-to-bottom analysis of U.S. Navy shipboard networks, systems, and external interfaces to provide a baseline for lifecycle cyber engineering. This analysis collected data from all available sources on the “as built” configuration of networks and systems— from network topologies to all communication systems.

Based on this first-of-its-kind architecture package, we determined potential vulnerabilities, mitigations, and opportunities for cyber hardening as well as a starting point for lifecycle cyber security management at the platform level.

CYBER HARDENING FOR AIRCRAFT CONTROLS

Our cyber hardening experts are working with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base to develop a passive, hardware-based solution that leverages the inherent device physics of the 1553 bus to improve air-frame-level resiliency to cyber attack.

As part of this effort, we developed a number of hardware-based cyber defense techniques to ensure our system’s survivability and reliability in the face of cyber attack, including a System-on-a-Chip-based solution to identify, contain, and recover from attacks on the aircraft 1553 command bus.
