Join our talented technical team whose purpose is to identify weaknesses and vulnerabilities in hardware and software security architectures of weapon systems and sensors. Coordinate your findings with DoD program offices and contractors to influence improvements to proposed security architectures. Participate in formal test activities to verify correctness of final anti-tamper implementations and ensure that vulnerabilities have not been inadvertently introduced. Finally, document your analysis of the anti-tamper solution and report formalized risk assessments and technical recommendations to senior DoD decision makers.

 Continue to develop your knowledge of anti-tamper with educational opportunities such as conferences (e.g. HOST, CHES, ISTFA) and government sponsored courses in cryptography and reverse engineering. Challenge your technical abilities by working on a diverse set of problems without concerns for cost or schedule constraints and be part of a team that will push your technical growth.
