Chantilly, Virginia (October 2017) – Edmond Scientific Company (ESC) was awarded its patent for protecting sensitive classified and unclassified information using Attribute-Base Access Control (ABAC) technology to restrict access to unauthorized users. Using both tuned vocabularies and codesets for a particular industry or application, the Security Labeling System (SLS) marks the data stream for enforcement, and allows either the masking or redaction of information to unauthorized users in real-time.
The technology has a direct application to protections against insider threats, and is one technology which provides a pathway to full compliance with 32 CFR Part 2002 for safeguards for Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). ESC is developing the technology beyond its current healthcare vocabularies, to include financial, contracting, procurement, and other sensitive information as described in the CUI Registry (see National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) https://www.archives.gov/cui/registry/category-list)
