Secure Systems and Applications Group

Mission Statement

Integrate and apply security technologies, standards, and guidelines for computing platforms and information systems.


The Secure Systems and Applications Groupís (SSAG) security research focuses on identifying emerging and high-priority technologies, and on developing security solutions that will have a high impact on the U.S. critical information infrastructure. The group conducts research and development on behalf of government and industry from the earliest stages of technology development through proof-of-concept, reference and prototype implementations, and demonstrations. SSAG works to transfer new technologies to industry, produce new standards and guidance for federal agencies and industry, and develop tests, test methodologies, and assurance methods.
