SAN ANTONIO, Texas, USA, May 11, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Forward Edge-AI, Inc. (Forward Edge-AI) announced that it recently signed a License Agreement and Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the National Security Agency (NSA) to develop and commercialize a device Protocol-Free Encryption (PFED), a new cryptographic technology augmented by artificial intelligence Research relies on fog computing to create fog blob to facilitate secure digital communication in critical infrastructure.
“The expected outcome of CRADA is Isidore Quantum™, a new low-cost hardware and software solution to address secure decentralized communications in a way that would be virtually impossible to hack. Isidore has the potential to offer post-quantum security for protect a wide range of public and private infrastructure and devices, including intelligent transportation systems, nanosatellites, autonomous weapons systems, IoT/Medical IoT, SCADA, VIP mobile phones, cryptocurrency infrastructure, laptops and tablets,” said Eric Adolphe, CEO and Co-Founder of Forward Edge-AI, Inc.
Forward Edge-AI has partnered with Bowie State University (BSU) through the NSA’s Minority Serving Institution (MSI) CRADA program and the Scalable Partnerships Accessing Research and Research (SPARC) program. marketing). The MSI CRADA allows the NSA workforce to engage with a variety of MSIs such as Historically Black Colleges/Universities (HBCUs) to conduct R&D activities focused on areas of research on the Internet of Things (IoT), National Cybersecurity Posture and Cyber Analytics Research. , and Secure Composition and System Science Research. The SPARC program is a partnership with the NSA that uses student-led research to uncover the commercial potential of NSA-patented technology. BSU Computer Technology students study programming, cybersecurity, networking, data science, Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, web services, basic design and development to ensure that students have a thorough understanding of how computers operate and interface within networks and how to protect the integrity/security of networked technology.
Forward Edge-AI has also partnered with Total Network Services (TNS) to associate Isidore™ with that company’s Universal Communications Identifier (UCID). UCID is the world’s first blockchain-enabled service for supply chain security, device management, software licensing and asset tracking. UCID can provide an immutable and verifiable record of each network device. “In tandem, Isidore and UCID will deliver an unparalleled level of security to any IoT ecosystem,” says Thomas Carter, CEO of TNS.
