The Defense Information Systems Agency has issued a request for information for trusted endpoint operations (TEO) technology that can be integrated with Host Based Security System, according to a procurement notice
DISA's Program Executive Office for Mission Assurance is seeking technology that can furnish enforcement of workflow that introduce changes to managed assets by configuration management and application sandboxing, stated the March 6 announcement on the FedBizOpps website. The capability should flag, defend against, and react to anomalous and unauthorized configurations, the notice said.
The TEO capability should prohibit application and operating system level configuration changes, protect key and high-risk registries and objects, protect integrity of process memory allocations and furnish protection against operating system tampering, the notice said. The capability should detect and provide alerts to event correlation tools by providing actionable intelligence to inform a response.
The TEO capability is expected to be standardized and deployed within the DOD on an enterprise-wide basis or on isolated network enclaves (tactical environments), to strengthen extant DOD endpoint capabilities to protect, detect, diagnose and react to malware and other cyber threats.
