Professional Services

Data Filtering

Data Filtering

Transferring files to and from your network carries the risk of introducing malicious content or inadvertently releasing sensitive data. Effectively managing file and data transfers requires a deep understanding of file structure and contents. Owl has years of experience developing file and data filtering technology to support safe data transfer for both commercial and government applications, including the Data Format Description Language (DFDL) standard and the open source Daffodil processor for DFDL.

Platform Security

Platform Security

Effective computer, mobile, and information security is essential to running any successful operation. Breaches and compromise are daily occurrences. You can’t afford to lose data, and you can’t afford downtime. With mobile devices, your enterprise has extended beyond traditional boundaries. Owl can help you secure your systems, protecting your assets and enabling you to operate with confidence.

Product Security Analysis

Product Security Analysis

Do you know what your device really does? Whether explicit or not, you have security goals for every computing device and application you use. You have to make sure you understand how well protected, and how resilient your systems are to attack. That means understanding the threats you face and configuring systems appropriately for your environment.

Security Architecture Assessment

Receive a comprehensive security assessment of system architecture and configuration. Since its inception in 1999, Owl has established itself as a leader in advancing fundamental platform security technology and applying security technology to solve real-world problems. Owl’s experience in all aspects of operating system and platform security, including fundamental technology research and development, tool development, policy development and analysis, solution design, implementation, and testing provides an edge when it comes to analyzing your solution security needs.

Accreditation Process Assistance

Accreditation Process Assistance

While it is the customer’s ultimate responsibility to manage deployment and use of CDS systems within their environments, Owl strives to assure that the systems we manufacture satisfy the full range of customer requirements for performance, security, reliability and documentation. As such, Owl provides a full suite of documentation to support the Accreditation process, starting with a CDS requirements document that captures functional and security objectives, and proceeding to details of technical implementation and operation.

The document suite typically includes the following:

  • Customer Requirements (data types and performance requirements)
  • Security Objectives (security requirements for mitigating site-specific risks)
  • High Level Design (which also serves as an executive overview document)
  • Low Level Design (which maps CDS security features to RDAC components, elements, & facets)
  • Implementation Representation (deep technical detail, as required)
  • Administration Manual (user guidance)
  • Functional Test Report (QA testing)
  • Configuration Management Plan (Lifecycle support)
  • Software Installation (CDS Build) Manual
  • General User Interfacing Manual
  • Training materials
