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.
