Xerox's PARC subsidiary and George Mason University have received a contract to identify security configurations designed to protect the country’s critical infrastructure and internet of things-based systems.

PARC said Tuesday it will collaborate with GMU researchers to explore new methods to create and integrate secure configurations into components of cyber-military and cyber-physical technology platforms through the SCIBORG: Secure Configurations for the Internet of Things project.

SCIBORG is part of the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency’s Configuration Security program.

The team intends to will apply per-component configurations and build graph-based models to help DARPA determine within- and between-component dependencies among configuration elements.

“SCIBORG’s approach explicitly encodes constraints on the configuration parameters using graph-based models, allowing us to significantly reduce the actual number of configurations that need to be tested for security and functionality,” said Ersin Uzun, director of PARC’s System Sciences Laboratory.
