Event Description

As communications systems continue to be the backbone of defense operations, and as spoofing, jamming, and hardware trojan attacks become more advanced, there is a need for novel holistic defense measures. This presentation will offer an overview of the following topics:

  • Radio-frequency hardware security: An innovative antenna-based RF fingerprinting technique for wireless systems will be presented.
  • Hardware trojans and their detection: An overview of the state-of-the-art of hardware trojan countermeasures.
  • RF fingerprinting based on statistical signal processing: a joint RF fingerprinting and multi-user detection scheme exploiting transmitter RF impairments

This presentation will also cover efforts by researchers from ERAU’s Center for Aviation Resilience (CAR) on the broader aerospace cyber and hardware security field.

Who Should Attend?
This event is open to the public for those who are eager to enhance the effectiveness of the Department of the Army Defense Cyber Operations (DCO) cyberspace and cybersecurity infrastructure through critical research, experiments, development, testing, and the development of innovative technologies. US Government (military and civilian), contractors, SOSSEC members and non-members are encouraged and welcome to attend to learn more about successful technology collaboration from these Cyber Talk briefings. The recommended audience is: program managers, development teams; engineers, architects; security managers; security specialists; system administrators; and analysts who work in DoD cyberspace.

About The Consortium
The purpose of the Army’s Cyber Operations Broad Responsive Agreement (COBRA) is to spur innovative development, demonstration, and expedited delivery of prototypes for Warfighter readiness. When awarded an Other Transaction Authority (OTA) there is a requirement to join the System of Systems Consortium (SOSSEC), the consortium manager for Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS).
