The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has selected Adventium Labs as one of the performers on its Cyber Fault-tolerant Attack Recovery (CFAR) program, worth $5.4M over 42 months if all options are awarded. The CFAR goal is to protect existing and planned software systems in both military and civilian contexts without requiring changes to the concept of operations of these systems.
Adventium has received a 2-year, $750K Phase 2 NASA SBIR to continue work on its Architecture Framework for Fault Management Assessment And Design (AFFMAD) project. The main objective of AFFMAD is to determine the completeness and appropriateness of Fault Management (FM) designs and implementations and assist users in identifying conflicts and inconsistencies between FM approaches and mission requirements as the FM approaches are being developed.
IEEE released a report titled "Building Code for Medical Device Software Security" with the aim to start builders of software for medical devices down the road toward a 'building code' for software security that will reduce the vulnerability of their systems to malicious attacks, just as codes for physical buildings help their designers and builders create structures that resist threats from fire, wind, water and, in some cases, malicious attacks.
Adventium is pleased to announce that we have added a new patent to our security-oriented virtualization IP portfolio. Patent #9,003,408 titled "Providing virtual machine services by isolated virtual machines" was issued on April 7th.
Adventium is proud to again sponsor MinneWIC, a regional celebration of Women in Computing in the upper midwest, scheduled for February 20-21, 2015. MinneWIC is modeled after the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing and will bring together students, faculty, and technology leaders from across Minnesota and neighboring states to discuss the role of women in today's computing and technology fields, share experiences and strategies for success, and explore issues common to women working in these fields.
A paper authored by Adventium's Dr. Martin Michalowski and colleagues from the University of Ottawa and Poznan University of Technology, titled “First-order Logic Theory for Manipulating Clinical Practice Guidelines Applied to Comorbid Patients: A Case Study,” has been selected as one of 15 (out of 249) distinguished papers at the annual American Medical Informatics Association conference taking place November 15-19, 2014 in Washington, DC.
Adventium Labs’ Ken Hoyme has been invited by the FDA to participate at the FDA Public Workshop on Collaborative Approaches for Medical Device and Healthcare Cybersecurity as a panelist for two separate panels - one on cybersecurity gaps and challenges and the other panel will discuss tools and standards development. Mr. Hoyme is a Distinguished Scientist at Adventium Labs and co-chair of the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) workgroup on medical device security.
The Minnesota High Tech Association (MHTA) has selected Adventium Labs as a finalist in two 2014 Tekne Awards categories. The Tekne Awards honor Minnesota companies and individuals who have shown superior technology innovation and leadership. Adventium is the only company to be named a finalist in more than one category. Click here to read the press release.
Adventium is thrilled to be sponsoring the University of Minnesota's Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Hackathon event to be held 26-27 September 2014. This inter-collegiate hackathon event is expected to draw a few hundred of the most talented and engaged technical students from the region. For more information or to get involved, please see uhack.io.
Adventium's contributions to designing planning information for incorporation into NASA's Procedure Representation Language (PRL) was summarized in a NASA Tech Brief this month. The work enables procedures used for NASA missions to be scheduled into an activity plan in a consistent fashion and for conflicts to be detected. Click here to read the Tech Brief.
