Application Security is Critical
Digital.ai Application Security is a defensive cyber security software solution. The Digital.ai Application Security software is applied at the binary code level delivering multi-layer protection against static and dynamic attacks. This process hardens applications and is ideal for Software Development Teams (SDTs), Mission Application Teams (MATs), and Mission Defense Teams (MDTs), where protecting specific applications and weapons systems are mission-critical for Defensive Cyberspace Operations (DCO).
Digital.ai is well positioned to work with the U.S. Department of Defense’s Enterprise DevSecOps initiative (DSOP), which involves creating a ‘Security as a Code’ culture with ongoing, flexible collaboration between release engineers and security teams. DevSecOps aims to create a cultural shift in engineering to unify software development (Dev), Security (Sec), and operations (Ops). Since Digital.ai software can be deployed with minimal initial configuration and setup, it can be seamlessly integrated into continuous integration and continuous development (CI/CD) processes running in DevSecOps environments.
Digital.ai Application Security solutions have been built with the understanding that the Federal Government and Federal System Integrators are increasingly interacting with their contractors, employees, and soldiers via an app — whether it’s mobile, web, or desktop. Securing these new endpoints’ applications and data against exploitation is key to preventing intelligence theft, privileged data breaches, and malicious hacking from adversaries
Traditional app security and network defenses cannot protect apps running in zero-trust environments. Traditional security perimeters no longer exist in today’s geographically distributed and technologically diverse — cloud, IoT (Internet of Things), and mobile — workforce. Remote employees need to access applications, systems, and devices which open up vulnerabilities and multiple points of entry for attackers against which firewalls and other security measures stand no chance. Yesterday’s insider threat has evolved into today’s threat actor with stolen credentials.
Digital.ai Application Security Solution
Digital.ai code protection hardens applications with patented guarding and threat detection capabilities. Digital.ai obfuscates code to protect against reverse engineering and delivers the ability to self-repair attacked code, automatically disable app functionality, insert honeypots, and implement other deceptive code patterns to deter and confuse threat actors when attacked. From the moment the app is downloaded, it can also detect and alert on jailbroken or rooted devices as well as active code threats, including debugging or other reverse engineering techniques. Additionally, Digital.ai provides white-box cryptography to protect static and dynamic keys and sensitive application data by obscuring critical key and data elements with obfuscation and encryption.
Digital.ai Application Security Includes:
Digital.ai Application Security for Android: application code protection and threat detection against reverse engineering and tampering for Java and Kotlin apps.
Digital.ai Application Security for iOS: delivering app protection and threat detection for all major iOS development language apps.
Digital.ai Application Security for Hybrid: Protecting all components of apps designed to run on iOS and Android, alerting on compromised devices, and in-progress code attacks
Digital.ai Application Security for Desktop or Server: Protecting apps running across all major desktop and server operating systems — macOS, Windows, Red Hat, and Ubuntu, utilizing the most common development languages — without requiring changes to source code to prevent reverse engineering attacks. The app can be located on-premises or in the cloud.
Digital.ai Application Security Solution
Digital.ai App Aware is integrated into Digital.ai protection solutions and provides visibility into the security posture of protected applications the moment they are published. It detects reverse engineering threats as well as cyberattacks in real time, allowing corrective action to be implemented before an attack is completed or becomes widespread. Digital.ai App Aware provides timely and actionable information, confidence through verification, rapid time-to-protection, and global intelligence. It also enhances the data available to Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) and Business Intelligence (BI) software solutions with API-level integrations.
Digital.ai’s FIPS 140-2 certified White Box Cryptography can also be added to protect encryption keys or data stored inside an application. While significant effort has been applied to securing data in transit, from secure transport layers to encrypting data from the source, the weak link is the endpoint: the app. If cipher keys are uncovered, they can be copied, re-distributed, and used maliciously — which is nearly impossible to detect. This could happen if a device falls into an adversary’s hands or a weapon system falls behind enemy lines. The unsecured threat vector must be remediated since existing data protection methods were not designed to defend keys from being discovered via reverse engineering or compromised app code.
Digital.ai White-Box Cryptography compliments existing encryption technologies used to provide strong in-transit protection and is designed to protect encryption/decryption keys stored within an app. Using mathematical techniques and transformations, white-box cryptography blends together app code and the keys to secure cryptographic operations, so keys cannot be found or extracted from the app to be used elsewhere. This adds protection to mobile, desktop, and server apps, whether they are located on a device or inside of a weapons system. Digital.ai’s White-Box Cryptography supports all major ciphers, modes, and key sizes and can directly interoperate with cryptographic packages (such as OpenSSL) and devices in a command or agency environment without requiring server-side changes. Digital.ai White-Box Cryptography is available on iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms.
