ThornedThymus: An Adaptive Immune System for the Software Supply Chain

Domingo Colon | 22-SI-005

Executive Summary

We will develop and demonstrate quantitative and measurable software assurance capabilities that address the integrity gaps present in the complete software acquisition and operations lifecycle. These capabilities will help ensure that software applications perform only the intended functionality and are free from unexpected and unintended behaviors, both those formed by malicious intent and by developer oversight.
