Proposal Number: 0521240
Proposal Title: Kennen Technologies - Secure Security System Monitor
Topic Number: H-SB05.2-004
Phase: Phase I
Topic Title: HARDWARE-ASSISTED SYSTEM SECURITY MONITOR
Organization: Kennen Technologies, LLC
Address: 209 Dartmouth Drive SE
Albuquerque, NM 87102-2219  
Abstract: Kennen has a patent pending architecture for a semiconductor device that will execute a model driven instance of an abstract algorithm. This invention is relevant to HSARPA`s HASSM objectives because it will support detection of a variety of threat/intrusion models at wire speed, can be securely isolated from attack, is not vulnerable to buffer overflow, and can provide breakthrough detection acuity. This project proposes to: 1) identify typical threat models, 2) verify (through emulation) that the algorithm will detect threats and the likelihood of Type 1 and Type 2 errors (or modifying the models or algorithm), 3) confirm that a semiconductor implementation in 10 months is feasible, 4) outline the commercialization scheme (for further development in Phase II), 5) design the architecture of a an isolated unassailable coprocessor board, and 6) provide a final report about the project and the expected value to society of the DHS investment in this project.
