GrammaTech adds hardening techniques to software assurance portfolio

GrammaTech announced the development of technologies for advanced software hardening. Most devices on the market today were not designed to support the high levels of connectivity, access, and remote operations of today’s IoT systems.  GrammaTech’s software-hardening tools and techniques complement the company’s static analysis products and services, helping teams develop highly resilient software and minimize risks of security breaches and other failures.

Static hardening allows development and operations teams to analyze, patch, and deploy binary executables, removing potentially hazardous vulnerabilities. To augment applications with extra safeguards, development teams can transform their binaries prior to deployment with techniques such as confinement, diversification and dynamic techniques.

With the increasing need for heightened security, Run-time Application Self-Protection (RASP) techniques are starting to be deployed within IT and mobile applications.  Unfortunately, these first-generation technologies are incompatible with embedded and machine-to-machine (M2M) software due to the incurred performance overhead.  Working with research sponsors and commercial pilot customers, including efforts for DARPA’s Cyber Grand Challenge, GrammaTech is advancing these technologies for embedded use.  GrammaTech’s run-time monitors provide devices with basic forms of self-awareness, allowing systems to detect deviations from expected behaviors and respond to attacks by raising alerts, initiating recovery processes, or shutting down altogether to protect critical data.

GrammaTech’s software hardening technologies will support existing solutions that help commercial customers achieve successful levels of reliability, safety, and security.
