Silicon Valley Innovation Program
- AppCensus (El Cerrito, California) will add to its existing platform by mapping vulnerabilities to SDK behavior and providing a means to visualize that data as well as incorporate those results into SBOM reporting and common tooling and practice for IT professionals within enterprises. (Initial Award April 2023) – Currently in Phase 1
- ChainGuard (Kirkland, Washington) - will create an SBOM composition tool by developing the conceptual schema of how to join micro-SBOMs, creating a test suite of micro-SBOMs and the super SBOMs that ought to be created, and implementing functionality that takes micro-SBOMs as input and outputs a super SBOM. (Initial Award April 2023) – Currently in Phase 1
- DeepBits (Riverside, California) - has developed an AI-powered code intelligence platform for large-scale accurate binary code identification across languages and hardware platforms. They will develop a multi-format SBOM translator and design, build, and test its SaaSBOM generation tool. (Initial Award April 2023) – Currently in Phase 1
- Manifest Cyber (Westport, Connecticut) will further mature their existing SBOM management platform by adding capabilities including support for enriching vulnerability data using the Vulnerability Exploitability eXchange (VEX) documentation, automating ticketing responses to Security Incident and Event Management (SEIM) systems, automating risk and compliance report. generation, begin building a global SBOM repository, and building support for eventual integration with commonly used asset management tools. (Initial Award April 2023) – Currently in Phase 1
- Scribe Security (Tel Aviv, Israel) - will adapt its existing platform to develop a multi-format SBOM translator using an Open Policy Agent (OPA), further develop two of its core technology tools used for the generation of SBOMs and extend its platform to provide unique vulnerability information and insights. (Initial Award April 2023) – Currently in Phase 1
- TestifySec (Jasper, Alabama) - is developing a new security platform and associated tools to provide enhanced supply chain security. These tools ensure software integrity by enabling detection of possible tampering or malicious activity through the application of “generate” and “verify” attestation processes in concert with policy compliance configuration. (Initial Award April 2023) – Currently in Phase 1
- Veramine (Bothell, Washington) - will enhance its Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) agent by adapting and configuring the agent to collect only what would be needed to populate the SBOM and – importantly – also to centrally preserve a single copy of every binary ever loaded anywhere across the enterprise network for vulnerability analysis. (Initial Award April 2023) – Currently in Phase 1
In this episode, join us as we talk with startups on the Tech Expo floor at the event—hear about the early days of the program and how these industry partners found success pursuing a nontraditional approach. Government officials and startups agree that tapping into this source of technology development yields major benefits for the greater homeland security enterprise.
DHS S&T announced a new solicitation to create, improve and implement a new set of tools that protect the privacy of individuals when using digital credentials that can be used for a variety of purposes including travel, immigration and citizenship status, employment, residency status and more.
S&T Awards Funds to a Startup Developing Object Detection & Tracking Algorithms for Securing Soft Targets
DHS S&T announced an award to a Birmingham, AL-based company, to build artificial intelligence algorithms that link objects, such as unattended baggage to people, and track them from the time they enter a perimeter to when they exit.
DHS S&T announced seven awardees from the “Software Supply Chain Visibility Tools” topic call which sought innovative technologies to provide software bill of materials (SBOMs) based capabilities for stakeholders within the enterprise, system administrator, and software development communities.
DHS S&T will host a two-day, in-person event May 18-19, 2023, to demonstrate innovative new technologies funded by its Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP). The SVIP Demo Week event will feature technology solutions adapted from the commercial market by startups to address DHS challenges and homeland security needs.
