New and enhanced mobile phishing and content protection capabilities are being transitioned to the government and private-sector, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) announced today.
Four small technology firms were awarded Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contracts by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) to create solutions that will automate analysis of mobile technology firmware at scale and identify vulnerabilities and prepositioned cyber-threats.
DHS S&T today released its 2018 Mobile Security Research and Development (R&D) Program Guide that introduces the technology projects, goals and objectives and their alignment with DHS and federal mobile security strategies and priorities.
DHS S&T is working to increase mobile app security by developing innovative solutions that will extend beyond deployment of an app to provide continuous security assurance throughout an app’s lifecycle.
A pilot project by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) resulted in the successful remediation of potential cybersecurity vulnerabilities in mobile applications (apps) used by the nation’s public-safety professionals, supporting the creation of an on-going mobile app-testing program.
The Securing Mobile Applications for First Responders report describes a mobile application (app) pilot testing program designed to serve a public safety purpose. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T), the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International, and Kryptowire LLC,a CSD performer, collaborated to identify security vulnerabilities and privacy issues important for public safety users and to recruit app developers to participate in testing and evaluation. This report describes findings from the testing, feedback from the developers who participated in the pilot, technical and program-level lessons learned, and recommended next steps.
DHS S&T today announced a $749,928 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) award to Manassas, Virginia-based Progeny Systems Corporation for developing a secure, mobile application development environment and deployment process.
Mobile security is the protection of smart devices and the networks the devices connect to from threats and vulnerabilities. DHS S&T's Cyber Security Division Mobile Security Program Manager Vincent Sritapan shares how you can protect your mobile devices.
Mobile application management solutions manage distribution, update and removal of managed apps from a DHS-managed device, however, standards-based methods are needed to vet apps prior to installation and continuously scan installed apps for new vulnerabilities.
Mobile devices have revolutionized the way we do work, enabling on-demand access to services and information anytime from anywhere. In the United States, there are an estimated 200 million smart mobile devices and two billion such devices worldwide.
