Researchers from the Center for Secure and Dependable Systems (CSDS) have been awarded another round of support to study the security of software operating systems. This contract is a continuation of on-going work for the past several years with Wind River Systems Inc.
and the U.S. National Security Agency.
"University of Idaho began by working with Wind River and NSA to develop a set of design and coding guidelines for VxWorks MILS 3, and now we are in the process of providing the formal evaluation of their secure product," said Dr. Jim Alves-Foss
, director of the Center for Secure and Dependable Systems.
The Center for Secure and Dependable Systems
at the University of Idaho was established in response to the overwhelming need for computer-related security education and research. CSDS is an interdisciplinary effort, where undergraduate and graduate students work alongside faculty from four colleges as well as external partners at INL and PNNL.
