Code 5542, the Computer Security Section, conducts advanced research and development to maintain information superiority of the DoD and US Navy.
In our research, we attempt to bridge the gap between infrastructure protection requirements and the current state of information security. While we respond to the immediate security requirements of the Navy and DoD, we maintain a vision for emerging technologies that would affect the information battle space of the future.
We offer innovative solutions and develop practical approaches to provide secure, trusted, and high-assurance systems for the military. Our information security expertise covers issues ranging from high-level applications and software components to low-level infrastructure and hardware systems. Deliverables range from conceptual system designs and policy statements to prototype implementations and deployable systems. Our major technology areas are:
