                  To enhance the security posture of DoD networks, Orb-weaverTM, a Government-off-the-Shelf (GOTS) software application developed by the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, provides 24/7 real-time discovery and mapping of Wi-Fi ®, Bluetooth® and cellular networks. Orb-weaver is deployed with Flying FoxTM sensors developed by Epiq Solutions. The passive cellular, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth detection capability provided by the Flying Fox sensors promotes compliance with “no cell phone” and other organizational policies, as well as enables implementation of WIDS (Wireless Intrusion Detection Systems). Flying Fox innovative sensors provide much-needed “zero false positive” cellular intrusion detection capabilities for numerous defense and intelligence agencies. Current... ...read more...

                    Perimeter-based defenses and threat detection technologies are not enough to defend against modern cyber-attacks in mobile ad-hoc networks. The reality of modern warfighting necessitates lightweight, mobile technologies that integrate devices controlling ever more technologies, very likely including cell-phones and other mobile wireless devices as nodes. In this new environment, enemies seeking to cause harm will not only look to extract and/or corrupt sensitive data and information being transferred through devices, but also leverage command and control capabilities against the devices themselves. Securing devices in the field will require transparent, lightweight solutions that enable multiple protected mobile gateways – not only... ...read more...

                            In military operations, speed = lethality. This is true in ground, sea, air and space operations and is especially applicable in the cyber domain. Increases US force lethality in the cyber domain will improve lethality in the other domains, or perhaps even avoid conflict altogether. To achieve the potential of cyber's force multiplication, we must remove the physical barriers currently encumbering rapid deployment and operations of cyber weapons systems. SealingTech is helping DISA to tackle the challenge of improving cyber lethality and retaining US military cyber dominance.

Current technology solutions used to protect information typically focus on four areas: endpoints, perimeter, applications and network traffic. Not much focus and resources are applied to safeguard what actually matter: the movement of sensitive information and restricted commands. A new era for cyber defense is upon us, it is time for Data Centric Cyber Security.

                                                      NRI's innovation is a major step forward in solving the problem of moving or accessing Big Data files over long distance/high latency network links. The capability truly maximizes your bandwidth investment by filling network links with ~95% 'good' data, unlike today's standard protocols that can fill your pipe with up to 80% or more of digital overhead. This capability moves big data files in a tiny fraction of the time it takes today and does so in a lossless & deterministic manner for a plethora of use cases while leveraging your current infrastructure and offering a new paradigm for thinking... ...read more...

With the high rate of turnover inherent in military organizations, institutional knowledge can be easily lost such as network configurations and organizational processes. Additionally, Security teams within these organizations normally have multiple tool sets with complex configurations that can be difficult to duplicate the exact setup or share with other team members. Standardizing workflows and process through automation will help teams to enhance mission capabilities. This can be especially helpful to... ...read more...

In this presentation, 3eTI will show how attack vectors associated with identity compromise, social engineering and other factors can open a military industrial control system (ICS) to intrusions with the potential to cripple base operations. There is a perception that only nation-states are capable of launching a cyber-attack against automated and control systems. This presentation will show that the reality is anyone can do it, from an entry-level civilian employee to contractor... ...read more...
