IAI Awarded U.S. Army Contract to Develop a Cross-Layer Trusted Computing Architecture for High Assurance Systems

ROCKVILLE, Md.—February 14, 2020Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Army to develop a cross-layer trusted computing architecture for high assurance systems.

In this contract, IAI will investigate the feasibility of using a hardware and software co-design to create a high assurance state machine as the trusted computing base for a high assurance operating system.

The architecture design will include descriptions of the hardware, microprocessor, state machine, operating system, and application software required to achieve at least an EAL6 certification. IAI will then prototype and simulate various portions of the design to demonstrate feasibility of the overall design.

“IAI is proud to have been selected by the U.S. Army to support its research related to high assurance operating systems,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.

IAI’s cyber research team creates tools to evaluate and mitigate attacks using the newest AI techniques. These solutions employ a variety of autonomous detection and mitigation strategies, including user behavior monitoring, network traffic monitoring, moving target defenses, and run-time monitoring of applications. IAI’s techniques allow for in-depth analysis of anomalies and provide additional insight into attacks and improved responses.
