Secure Access Wrapper (SAW)
Databases constitute the most ubiquitous applications in distributed military
and commercial network infrastructures, many of which have stringent security
requirements. The objective of this project was to develop Secure Access
Wrapper (SAW) technology for securing access to commercial off-the-shelf
(COTS) and legacy databases in very large-scale information systems.
This technology will
form the basis of an automated toolkit for generation of composable
database security wrappers. Databases wrapped by SAWs can then combine
to form scalable, secure information systems, enabling elimination of
paper-based approval methods for external information requests.
