Galois wins $6.2M contract to support DARPA data privacy program

Galois has won a $6.2 million contract to support the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Brandeis program.

The Brandeis program is focused on developing tools and techniques for building systems in which private data may be used only for its intended purpose. The program seeks to restructure society’s relationship with data by providing the data owner with mechanisms for maintaining control of their data while sharing it with others, Galois said in a release.

DARPA selected Galois’ TAMBA team, which consists of the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Maryland College Park, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Charles River Analytics as the winners of the contract.

Under the contract, Galois and its team will provide analyses and metrics that it calls the Knowledge-Based Measurement Framework, which is built on semantics for tracking how private data leaks from the system over time and can be used to reason about the broad variety of privacy guarantees provided by Brandeis systems, Galois said.
