IAI Awarded DARPA Contract to Develop Programming Language Support for Assured Data Intent

ROCKVILLE, Md.—July 24, 2020Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop programming language support for assured data intent using non-burdensome, application-specific, programmer-added annotations at levels more granular than files and processes.

In this contract, IAI will support the efficient distribution and usage of sensitive data in tactical systems by protecting data not only when it is at rest, but also during processing. To be non-burdensome, annotations will be concise and primarily inferred automatically from key areas of the code. The solution will be applied to both code and data units to assure end-to-end data intent. The result will be quick and accurate access and use of various levels of classified data.

“IAI understands the challenge of assured data protection and is proud to support DARPA’S efforts in this area,” 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.
