NetApp, Flair Systems partner to help Polaris Alpha deliver for government agencies

Coker

SUNNYVALE, CA July 11, 2017 “Our systems are used to help analysts and operators visualize and share massive amounts of data to support critical decision-making for U.S. national security across air, sea, ground, cyber, and space operations globally,” said David Coker, senior VP of information systems at Polaris Alpha. “With NetApp, we have significantly accelerated the development of new offerings and have changed our relationship with our internal customers; they now see us as part of their team.”

Polaris Alpha provides custom software solutions that allow government agencies such as the Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security to quickly evaluate potential threats and make smarter decisions. Polaris Alpha’s business and reputation depend on its ability to consistently deliver solutions on time and within budget. Behind the scenes, more than 400 software developers provide continual support and services for customers’ unique deployments.

The company had to modernize every aspect of IT when they decided to adopt a multimodal approach that applied DevOps and agile methodologies to their oldest legacy systems. As they transitioned from monolithic applications to cloud-native containerized technologies, they faced a 10% monthly growth in storage requirements, which increased latency and hampered developer productivity.

Polaris Alpha turned to Flair Data Systems, a NetApp (NASDAQ:NTAP) partner, to help develop a responsive, reliable support approach for customers’ mission-critical operations.  This included moving Polaris Alpha’s virtualized production and development systems to FlexPod® Datacenter converged infrastructure, which uses NetApp® All Flash FAS, the world’s fastest and most cloud connected all flash arrays. 

The ability to easily integrate FlexPod with existing VMware solutions simplified provisioning, and accelerated container deployments, including Docker and Jenkins, from six weeks to just 15 minutes.  With faster provisioning and submillisecond latency, Polaris Alpha can now support its 400 developers with access to additional resources. The system can now handle more than 100 concurrent builds with no impact on performance. Developers can now test and deliver solutions and microservices to customers more quickly and more reliably.  The company also benefits from the FlexPod compact footprint, which takes up 75% less data center space than the previous solution.

California university receives NATO grant to conduct research on cybersecurity

Mondin

California State University, Los Angeles has been awarded a $380,000 grant from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) to conduct research designed to improve cyber security.

Cal State LA will collaborate with NATO experts, as well as scientists from Italy, Israel, and Pakistan on the project.

“We are looking forward to collaborating with these partners to foster research, innovation, and knowledge in an effort to address today’s security challenges,” said Marina Mondin, who is the grant’s principal investigator and an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at Cal State LA.

NATO’s Science for Peace and Security (SPS) Program has provided funding for a three-year period. The program also provides expert advice and support to security-relevant activities jointly developed by a NATO member and partner country.

“The research conducted at Cal State LA, in collaboration with other institutions, will help advance the field and lead to greater cybersecurity,” said Cal State LA President William A. Covino. “We’re pleased to be a part of this important effort.”

The collaborative research project focuses on the design and implementation of a practical Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) system between two major cities in northern Italy.

QKD uses quantum mechanics to exchange secret information. Quantum mechanics is the science dealing with the behavior of matter and light on the atomic and subatomic scale.

In QKD systems, individual photons are used to exchange cryptographic key data between a sender and a receiver. Each photon represents a single piece of data. After a key has been created, it can then be used to encrypt messages that are being communicated over an insecure channel.

It is the only known technique against cyberattacks that is secure based on the current understanding of laws of physics.

“QKD systems have reached a maturity level that allows their potential full realization and implementation for creation of a secure network backbone. The scientists at the Italian National Institute of Metrological Research (INRIM) are at the forefront of experimental research in the field of quantum optics,” said Mondin.

Quantum optics is a field of research that uses semi-classical and quantum-mechanical physics to investigate phenomena involving light and its interactions with matter at submicroscopic levels.

Researchers will also focus on the advancement of all related technologies for both fiber optics and free space optical systems. Free space optics is the technology associated with using a light source to wirelessly transmit data.

Mondin is an expert in signal processing for communications, modulation and coding, simulation of communication systems, and quantum communications. She has been associate editor for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ Transactions on Circuits and Systems and has been a member of the technical-scientific committees of various international conferences.

Other researchers involved in the grant project include Marco Genovese, of Italian National Institute of Metrological Research, Torino, Italy; Shlomi Arnon, of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Beer-Sheva, Israel; and Inam Bari, of National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences, Peshawar, Pakistan.  

Over the past five years, the NATO SPS program has initiated 450 collaborative activities in more than 40 partner countries from cyber security in Jordan to defense against chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear agents, and energy security in Ukraine.

O'Hare site for latest Customs biometric exit technology pilot

CHICAGO July 11, 2017 U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced today the deployment of facial recognition biometric exit technology to Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) for select flights from ORD. The deployment builds upon a June 2016 pilot at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport using facial recognition. CBP recently deployed the technology to Washington Dulles International Airport and George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston. Future deployments are planned for additional airports this summer.

“Through our consultations with the airlines and airport stakeholders, and based on the success of several pilots, CBP determined that facial recognition was a viable exit solution,” said John Wagner, Deputy Executive Assistant Commissioner, Office of Field Operations. “With the expansion of this technology we will be looking at different flights, airports, lighting conditions, and internal IT configurations to demonstrate to our stakeholders that this solution is flexible, reliable and easy for travelers to use.”

Using the flight manifest, CBP builds a flight specific photo gallery using photographs from the travel document the traveler provided to the airline. CBP then compares the live photo against the document photo in the gallery to ensure the traveler is the true bearer of the document. If the photo captured at boarding is matched to a U.S. passport, the traveler—having been confirmed as a U.S. citizen—is automatically determined to be out of scope for biometric exit purposes and the photo is discarded after a short period of time. CBP remains committed to protecting the privacy of all travelers.

Delta and JetBlue recently announced collaborations with CBP to integrate facial recognition technology as part of the boarding process. Delta is testing eGates at John F. Kennedy International Airport and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and JetBlue is testing facial recognition technology at Boston Logan International Airport that allows passengers to self-board without scanning a boarding pass.

There are several legislative mandates that direct the Department of Homeland Security to record the arrival and departure of non-U.S. citizens by collecting biometrics. CBP first established biometric screening procedures based on digital fingerprints for certain non-U.S. citizens in 2004 to secure our borders and ensure that the foreign travelers presenting themselves for admission to the United States are who they claim to be.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.

Boon Edam installs revolving doors at Stockholm Central Station

LILLINGTON, NC Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, today announced that Stockholm Central Station in Sweden has installed a Boon Edam entrance solution as part of a renovation project for the terminal.

 

Originally designed in 1871, Stockholm Central Station has a long, proud history, and the building itself features magnificent artworks and architecture. The building is historically listed and as such, officials have an obligation to protect its architectural features in any upgrades or renovations that are undertaken.

 

The current generation of commuters is very discerning in their public transport needs. They place a high emphasis on using a facility which is efficient, sustainable, and easily accessible, but one that is aesthetically pleasing too. A dignified, impressive entrance is key to a comfortable customer experience and is proven to leave a lasting impression on the visitor.

 

"The goal was to let people experience the whole atmosphere of this historic building, from floor to ceiling. We also wanted to have the old and the new come together in a natural way," said AIX Architectural Conservator Johan Rittsél. The station owners, Jernhusen, and the architects, AIX, have been collaborating together for 15 years to restore Stockholm Central Station to its former glory, while creating a contemporary authenticity. This entry solution needed to be true to the authentic beauty and atmosphere of the original space while still meeting the modern demands placed on traffic flow and energy savings.

 

Stockholm Central Station has installed a set of three Boon Edam all glass, 3-winged Crystal Tourniket automatic revolving doors, along with integrated heaters. Each door can accomodate 1,740 persons per minute in both directions in addition to being able to manage sustainable climate-control. The Crystal Tourniket doors also include collapsible door wings, which create an easy escape route in the event of an emergency, ideal for such a large public area.

 

After considering rebuilding or replacing the original 2-winged revolving doors or installing an airlock solution with sliding doors, the decision makers chose to install three, full glass, 3-winged revolving doors. This entrance selection complemented the classic architecture of the original entrance hall while letting in as much daylight as possible.

 

"Boon Edam was very focused on finding the right door solution for us, even taking us on research tours so we could try out different door solutions. Perhaps the most important thing was that we did not try to copy anything, instead we used our research to create the perfect solution for our specific circumstances," said Anne Teresiak, an architect with AIX.

 

One of the primary challenges designers faced was concealing the entrance’s technical  aspects so as not to interfere with the overall user experience and impression of the entrance. The motors were built into the floor, the control boxes were designed to be situated at a lower level in the building, and the vertical heaters were integrated into the centerline of the doors.

 

After the installation of the Boon Edam revolving doors, a champagne bar was opened in the entrance hall, and current plans also call for a new café, finalizing the complete restoration process. Anne Teresiak continued, "It felt great to see how the light came through the glass doors and the facade windows. It was like the room had become complete again."

 

Peter Appelgren, representing the station owners, Jernhusen, said, "The revolving doors are now an integrated part of the entrance hall. We've managed to capture the ambience of the old, while still making sure we meet the modern demands of energy savings as well as maintaining high-volume traffic flow."

CBP unveils new mobile application for aspiring agents and officers

WASHINGTON July 10, 2017 U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced today the launch of CBP Jobs, a new mobile app for prospective agents and officers to track their progress through the hiring process. CBP Jobs offers frontline applicants updates about the status of their application and provides important notifications about upcoming appointments and next steps.

“CBP is focused on improving our recruiting and hiring processes, and we heard from prospective applicants that they would like regular communication during the application process,” said Acting Commissioner Kevin McAleenan. “With CBP Jobs, prospective employees will now have their hiring information at their fingertips and will stay connected with CBP through the entire process.”

The CBP Jobs mobile app enables CBP Officer, Border Patrol Agent, Air Interdiction Agent, Marine Interdiction Agent, and Agricultural Specialist applicants who have already received a temporary job offer to view their status in the hiring process by downloading the free app on an Apple or Android device. Future versions of the CBP Jobs app will enable applicants to self-schedule interviews, fitness tests, and other requirements to help speed up the application process.

“This new mobile app gives a reliable and convenient way for prospective applicants to stay informed and up-to-date on their hiring status,” said Linda Jacksta, Assistant Commissioner for CBP’s Office of Human Resources Management. “Leveraging advancements in technology has the potential to be a game changer for CBP as we continue to transform our hiring processes.”

Beginning in 2015, CBP reengineered its entire pre-employment process by implementing more than 40 process improvements that collectively transformed its frontline staffing capability. As part of this effort, CBP developed a new expedited hiring process that significantly reduced the time-to-hire for qualified applicants. Based on a hiring hub model, the new process allows CBP to identify and remove unqualified applicants more quickly and prevent bottlenecks in later phases of the process. The CBP Jobs app is the latest initiative designed to further improve a prospective applicant’s experience within CBP.

The Foundation and the Institute focus on non-partisan policy issues and are governed by separate volunteer boards working in conjunction with the Alliance's own volunteer Advisory Council.

EclecticIQ partnership to leverage Group-IB unique data on Russian hackers

Volkov

AMSTERDAM July 12, 2017 Group-IB, a global leader in high-grade threat intelligence and best-in-class anti-fraud solutions, and EclecticIQ, the leading vendor of products and services dedicated to augmenting threat analysts' capabilities, today announced a partnership to integrate Group-IB's unique data on Russian-language hackers into EclecticIQ Platform. With this new integration, threat analysts, threat hunters, SOC analysts, and incident responders can add detailed context and immediately refine their investigations into cyber threats originating from Russian-speaking cybercriminals.

Russian underground communities are dominating the cyber world. These communities are defined by their native language and their technical and logical peculiarities, rather than by affiliation with nation-state actors.

"Detailed threat intelligence is always local—not in the geographical sense, but in terms of the communities the bad guys belong to," says Dmitry Volkov, Co-Founder of Group-IB and Head of Group-IB's Investigation Department and Intelligence Service. "It's impossible to get valuable information about an underground community without a deep understanding of the region and of cybercriminals' motives, psychology, and language."

"The devil is in the detail," Volkov adds. "It takes years to build an effective intelligence network into a regular channel of reliable information. We've been following Russian-language underground hacking communities since 2003, making Group-IB the absolute leader in the field."

EclecticIQ has now integrated Group-IB's unique intelligence on Russian-speaking hackers into EclecticIQ Platform, which helps IT security professionals and threat intelligence analysts to optimize their efforts in analyzing huge amounts of information from different sources; and EclecticIQ Fusion Center, which fuses and configures intelligence feeds, automatically enriches this data, and delivers threat intelligence directly into IT security controls.

"Russian-speaking cybercriminals are considered among the most advanced in the world, and taking that into account forms an essential component of any threat intelligence strategy for organizations targeted by these groups," says Joep Gommers, CEO & Founder of EclecticIQ. "By partnering with Group-IB, we're benefitting our customers with the most reliable information for analysis and proactive cyber defense against Russian-language attackers."

From within EclecticIQ Platform, threat analysts, threat hunters, SOC analysts, and incident responders now have access to timely intelligence on Russian-language hackers sourced from underground communities. Using intelligence including patterns of behavior, motives, methods, and techniques, cybersecurity professionals can build effective defensive strategies that help their organization to stay one step ahead of the criminals.

Threat intelligence from Group-IB will also be packaged into thematic bundles of cyber threat intelligence available through EclecticIQ Fusion Center.

Threat Intelligence is one of the fastest-growing areas in cybersecurity across multiple industries including financial services, government, oil and gas, and defense.

Considering the increasing frequency and severity of attacks by Russian cybercriminals on bank ATMs and other channels, financial institutions continue to be one of the largest consumers of threat intelligence. Cybersecurity analysts at financial institutions proactively identify threats and reduce operational risks with comprehensive threat intelligence that encompasses statistics, damage evaluations, trend reports, forecasts, detailed attack analyses, and analytics tailored to an organization's operational footprint.
