Abstract:

This report covers the research and development RD performed by Harris Corporation under a DARPA sponsored effort entitled Integrated Design Environment for Assurance IDEA. The intent of IDEA was to provide Information Assurance IA analysts with the capability to select appropriate software IA tools, seamlessly link them to system data and other tools, initiate and monitor execution, and merge and present results. A key feature is the incorporation of Fuzzy Fusion technology to enable the merging fusion of results from individual tools and the presentation of those results in a composite fashion to provide a concise and timely report of a systems security posture. IDEA was performed under DARPAs Information Assurance Science Engineering Tools IASET program. The IASET program came to a premature conclusion in FYOO. As a result, Harris Corporation was not able to develop a demonstrable prototype as originally planned. An architectural design, however, was completed and is reported on.
