Abstract This report presents the major results for the initial phase of the RT-42 Security Engineering research effort funded through the Systems Engineering Research Center. The work builds upon prior efforts that pointed toward a point defense approach for cyber security that provides defense solutions that are embedded inside of the systems to be protected (as opposed to the access perimeter to those systems and the networks that support those systems). These solutions are referred to as System Aware security because their designs depend upon intimate knowledge of the designs of the systems being protected. The results in the report include: (1) The addition of two new design patterns formatted in the conventional manner used in our earlier efforts. For reasons related to the desire to integrate a design pattern library to promote reuse by others, these new pattern have been integrated into a single section that includes all of the design patterns that have been developed to-date; (2) Design data related to the implementation of a ground- based prototype for a cyber security solution for an autonomous surveillance system onboard an unmanned aerial vehicle. This information will be the basis for the prototype to be developed over the next phase of this project; (3) An updated description of the cyber security architecture decision support tools being utilized to support design decisions for the prototyping project. The tools include support software that continues to be updated as new features are added to the decision support tool set. Elements of this work have been published in the peer review journal, Systems Engineering, Vol 16, No 3, 2013.
