DHS research contract to improve critical infrastructure protection

Denim Group, a leading secure software development company, announced that it was awarded a research (SBIR) contract by the Department of Homeland Security to improve the accuracy and comprehensiveness of software vulnerability analysis activities. This will enable security analysts and software developers to fix software applications, a key exposure point into systems of all kinds. The department stated that as software systems grow more capable and complex, they become more susceptible to flaws that prospective adversaries can exploit. As a result of this contract, the research by Denim Group will create a Hybrid Analysis Mapping framework that will accelerate the discovery, identification, and remediation of application vulnerabilities to help further protect software systems from sophisticated cyber-attacks. This technological innovation is a pivotal investment in protecting software systems that power the US’ critical infrastructure and e-commerce industries, says the DHS.
