        William Edwards

        Navy Scientist, Cyber Mobility and Security

          Bill works in the area of cyber mobility performing rapid prototyping of alternative designs, implementations of secure mobile devices to securely access US Navy data. Bill looks into CMD platforms that use hardware backed key stores such as TrustZone, embedded secure element use cases. Bill works on these platforms using open standards and the Global Platform Alliance, just to name a few. Bill works with COTS vendors to provide a sustainable, lower cost, and low profile solutions for the Warfighter. Bill also works on key management parameters. There are many factors to consider in the life-cycle of a DoD key. With so many types of keys available (public, private, authentication, authorization, signing, verification, etc.), there are many questionable issues on how a DoD key is properly generated, distributed, stored, replaced, deleted, and recovered during its life time, and provided with adequate protection against threats.
