Kratos introduces CyberC4: Armor product

18th April 2012 - 14:44 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Kratos Defense & Security Solutions has announced that its RT Logic subsidiary released CyberC4:Armor, a product designed to provide host-level cyber security and anti-tampering capabilities for mission-critical devices and equipment used in satellite ground networks. The company made the announcement 18 April, 2012.

CyberC4:Armor applies military grade system hardening technology for the protection of Linux-based front-end processors, modems, recorders, and other SATCOM equipment against the most sophisticated cyber attacks and tampering, including zero-day exploits and high-risk insider threats. CyberC4:Armor is designed to prevent reverse-engineering, runtime debugging, and execution of unauthorized code, such as the kind that might be transmitted via an email phishing attempt or the insertion of a malware-infected thumb drive.

According to the company, the fact that satellite ground networks rely more and more upon IP-based technologies, brings additional 'surface area' for cyber security attacks, prompting the development of the product.
Jerry Meleski, Vice President of RT Logic, said, ‘Protecting SATCOM devices at the network edge often only focuses on external cyber threats. Tamper-proofing the algorithms of the devices themselves is the most effective way to combat threats originating both inside and outside the network.’

CyberC4:Armor uses a hardware-assisted hardening technique to cryptographically bind the hardware, firmware, and software for protection against the most sophisticated exploits. Detecting tamper attempts, CyberC4:Armor can respond by running any customer specified application action such as locking out the user, phoning home over TCP/IP, or executing a custom decoy application.Hardening is performed in RT Logic's production facility and can be tailored to meet specific customer requirements.
