Perspecta Announces Partnership with Abaco Systems to Bring its 1553 Bus Defender Product to Market

Chantilly, Va.— Nov. 15, 2018— Perspecta Inc., announced today that its innovative research arm, Perspecta Labs, has entered into a partnership with Abaco Systems, Inc. (Abaco), to bring its 1553 Bus Defender™ product to market.

Warfighting systems are built for longevity and require a sophisticated means of communication, but with that comes advanced vulnerabilities. The 1553 Bus Defender solution from Perspecta Labs, developed on a Department of Defense (DoD) research program, protects weapons systems from both known and future cyberattacks.

Specifically, the MIL-STD-1553 (1553) data bus, designed long before the days of widespread computer network hacking, and the line-replaceable units (LRUs) on it are vulnerable to cyberattacks. Depending on the scope and nature of the compromise, adversaries can cause denial of service (DoS), exfiltration of critical data, neutralization or destruction of the warfighting system, loss of life, and mission failure. 1553 Bus Defender provides protection without requiring any modifications to LRUs – a key advantage over software-based approaches.

“At Perspecta Labs, we pride ourselves on our ability to invent answers to our customers’ hardest problems,” said Petros Mouchtaris, Ph.D., president of Perspecta Labs. “We have built a strong reputation of putting our proven innovations to work in the real-world, and we look forward to the opportunity to do that with a strong partner like Abaco by our side.”

“In our discussions with the DoD, the DoD has made it clear to us that it sees our primary role as being to deliver advanced technologies – especially in the area of cybersecurity – into the hands of our warfighters as quickly as possible,” said Rich Sorelle, CEO, Abaco Systems. “That’s what makes this partnership with Perspecta so exciting. 1553 Bus Defender is precisely the kind of solution our armed forces need, and it’s a privilege to be working on it.”

Prototype 1553 Bus Defender devices have been successfully tested in DoD system integration labs. Perspecta Labs and Abaco are now working together to transition the technology for widespread use. Abaco’s expertise in the design and production of rugged embedded computing hardware across a variety of form factors will ensure that the 1553 Bus Defender devices meet all critical size, weight, power, security and cost requirements.

Prototypes are currently available for demonstration and the two companies are actively reviewing and identifying opportunities for field testing of the 1553 Bus Defender capability.

Chantilly, Va.— November 13, 2018—Perspecta Inc. (NYSE: PRSP) announced today that its innovative research arm, Perspecta Labs, was awarded a prime contract from the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to support the Configuration Security (ConSec) program. The contract, which represents new work for the company, has a base value of $5.4M and consists of three phases over a three-and-a-half year performance period.

The goal of the ConSec program is to develop technologies that can automatically generate, deploy, and enforce configurations of components and subsystems for use in military platforms, critical infrastructure and network-connected systems for the Internet of Things. The configurations must deliver needed functionality and performance while also mitigating vulnerabilities and minimizing the attack surface.

“Perspecta Labs will draw on its rich portfolio of research and development in machine learning and cybersecurity to deliver this work,” said Petros Mouchtaris, Ph.D., president of Perspecta Labs. “We are excited to bring our innovative techniques to identify, correct and prevent configuration errors in complex networks and distributed systems to our DARPA partner in support of their mission to improve security to critical military and commercial platforms.”

On the program, the Perspecta Labs team will design, develop, demonstrate, test and deliver the Optimized Context-specific Configuration for Attack Surface Minimization (OCCAM) system. OCCAM will automatically generate correct and secure configurations, rapidly and at scale, along with human-readable supporting evidence to facilitate transition of the platform to the improved configuration. Correct configurations are critical for the efficient and secure operations of systems.

DARPA CHASE_thumbnail img.jpg

Chantilly, Va.—October 1, 2018— Perspecta Inc. (NYSE: PRSP) announced today that its innovative research arm, Perspecta Labs, was awarded a prime contract from the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to support the Cyber-Hunting at Scale (CHASE) program. The four-year contract which represents new work for the company has a base value of $4.7M, not including options.

The goal of the CHASE program is to develop dynamic, real-time tools that can successfully defend large-scale, distributed networks from broad-spectrum cyber threats. The program aims to leverage iterative techniques to converge on the right data, from the right devices, at the right time to detect, characterize and thwart attacks.

On the contract, Perspecta Labs will develop, demonstrate and evaluate data-driven cyber-hunting tools that work in real-time, at-scale, and across multiple enterprise networks. Specifically, the company plans to design and develop WILEE, a set of components for threat detection and characterization.

“This new work builds on Perspecta Labs' research experience, technology expertise and implementation capabilities on past cyber work with DARPA,” said Petros Mouchtaris, Ph.D., president of Perspecta Labs. “We look forward to working closely with DARPA on this critical work to harden distributed networks.”

The Perspecta Labs’ WILEE solution will accelerate the hunt process by translating high-level threat descriptions into possible concrete implementations using a variety of sophisticated analytic techniques, including adversarial planning, genetic perturbation and data-driven evaluation. WILEE will automatically prioritize hunt activities, inform data collection, minimize detection time and detect both known and novel malicious activities with high confidence.
