Joint Strike Fighter


Enhance cybersecurity around the F-35 program


For the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Program Office (JPO), SMX provides cyber security support to the JPO Special Access Program (SAP) networks. In just six months, the SMX team installed and migrated seven enterprise networks and deployed a Nutanix hyperconverged virtualization capability, providing the JPO with a level of scalability it had not yet experienced.

Through close cooperation with Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI) Authorizing Officials, our team was able to obtain RMF authorization through the Joint SAP Implementation Guidance (JSIG) authorizing networks, which had been taken offline for years. We also led a consolidation effort collapsing five SAP networks into two while delivering a first-of-its-kind multi-level SAP network with Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC). This effort removes obstacles to multi-nation, multi-program cooperation at the SAP level while still ensuring a high level of confidentiality and integrity.
