Campaign: Ideas for the Mobility Strategy

Eval security on Air Force Research Lab's end node testbed

End nodes (mobile devices in this case) are by far easier to penetrate than big, federal networks/clouds and are used in both risky and trusted areas (thus the End Node Problem). AFRL is developing (and will soon deploy) a authentication testbed any federal agency may use to evaluate (mobile) devices while accessing Google Apps for Government.

 

Recommend the FMS include support for R&D of security since most commercial manufacturers build such devices for the huge consumer and low-security small business market (Apple, Android) rather than the smaller-segment, security-concerned, large enterprise market (witness RIM's Playbook).
