Please contact NexiTech for a copy of our complimentary white paper:
A Cybersecure Mission Planning Environment
Abstract: This white paper offers innovative defensive cybersecurity capabilities for
USAF Mission Planning Environments (MPEs) that will disrupt adversary attack
planning and execution while reducing the risk of cyberattacks on mission planning
computers and aircraft. It accomplishes these objectives by offloading the programming
of Data Transfer Devices (DTDs) used to initialize aircraft mission parameters to a
separate storage appliance, creating a Cybersecure Mission Planning Environment.
MPE Cybersecurity capabilities – Available from NexiTech right now, no cockpit
changes required:
1.)
Immediate upgrade of the Windows operating system on the MPE host computer,
from Windows XP to Windows 7 and beyond.
2.)
A secure communication channel that uses innovative storage virtualization
techniques to reduce cyberattack vectors.
3.)
Increased bandwidth for faster data transfers.
4.)
IPsec and CHAP for data-in-flight protection.
5.)
Cyber Agility – A Moving Target Defense (MTD) for
Data Transfer Devices (DTDs)

DTD Cybersecurity capabilities – Available from other vendors in the future, but
Operational Flight Program (OFP) upgrades are required:
1.)
NSA Type 1 encryption for data-at-rest protection.
2.)
Fast zeroize.
3.)
Increased bandwidth for faster data transfers.
Storage Virtualization (software-defined storage) Live Demo:
1.)
Will demonstrate NexiTech ASPI Manager software already in use by USAF.
2.)
Will demonstrate full bandwidth iSCSI communications in excess of 100 MB/s.
3.)
Will change the DTD device type from "disk" device to "other" type of device.
4.)
Transparent to authorized users, disrupting only adversaries
but not mission planning specialists.
5.)
Fibre Channel transport also available.
Hands-on Training for Robins AFB personnel:
1.)
Iometer v1.1.0 – An open source I/O subsystem performance measurement
and characterization tool.
2.)
Wireshark v1.12.1 – The world's most popular network protocol analyzer.
