DARPA Picks Galois Project for Big Data Program; Dave Archer Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

security lock chipThe Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has awarded a $6.3 million contract to Galois for the implementation of its Jana project to help extract value from big data and protect the privacy of data in transit and at rest.

The Jana project is intended to implement “private data as a service” to help analysts use data in a secure environment as part of DARPA’s Brandeis program, Galois said Monday.

“Jana embodies the vision of the Brandeis program, which is to unlock the full value of big data while maintaining the highest levels of privacy as data is shared and analyzed,” said Dave Archer, research lead of cryptography and multiparty computation at Galois.

Jana is a partnership between Galois, the University of Bristol, Rutgers University and George Mason University with the goal of encrypting data before it leaves the source.

DARPA’s Brandeis program is named after former Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis, author of the essay “The Right to Privacy.”
