NAVSUP FLC SAN DIEGOREGIONAL CONTRACTS (CODE 200)3985 CUMMINGS ROADSAN DIEGO CA 92132-4200(619)532 4580 2. Description of the Action Being Approved. Contract to Obscure Technologies to fund the development and delivery of computer forensictools for analyzing network traffic and stored data created during the use of video game systems.The total amount available is $177,237.50 RDT & E underlying funds; 3. Description of Supplies/Services. This project proposes to create the following deliverables for use by Department of HomelandSecurity Science and Technology (DHS S&T): 4.1   Hardware and software tools that can be used for extracting data from video gamesystems. 4.2   A collection of data (disk images; flash memory dumps; configuration settings)extracted from new video game systems and used game systems purchased on thesecondary market. 4.3   A final report between 10 and 20 pages to include the following information:-   Detailed account of issues involved in extracting forensic data from a series of game consoles-   Technical information regarding how information can be extracted from videogame systems-   Any engineering decisions that were made and why-   What work remains to be done-   Any failings of the approaches followed 4. Statutory Authority Permitting SOLE SOURCE. Title 10USC 2304(c)(1) authority as implemented by FAR 6.302-1 . 5. Rational Justifying Use of Cited Statutory Authority. This project requires the purchasing of used video game systems outside the US in a manner thatis likely to result in their containing significant and sensitive information from previous users.  12-230-0002 Obscure Technologies is the only US company that appears to offer the purchasing of usedcomputer equipment for access to the contained information as a commercial service.Analysis of the game systems requires specific knowledge of working with the hardware of embedded systems that have significant anti-tampering technology. Obscure Technologies hassubstantial experience in working with such systems. Obscure Technologies has the ability to docradle-to-grave turnkey servicing of complete hardware systems design. For mechanicalintegration, its facility has a small but adequate machine shop as well as a laser cutter for rapidprototyping of fixtures and jigs. For electronic assembly, the company has a full rework andassembly station for fine-pitch SMT, and maintains strategic relationships with local specialtyCMs for reflow and BGA soldering. The company also has a full electronics diagnostic benchincluding oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, and various meters. For reverse engineering, the facilityhas a wet lab for etching and decapsulation, wafer probes, and a microscope for imaging, alongwith various firmware tools such as IDA and bus protocol analyzers for rapid interdisciplinaryanalysis of a system across multiple levels. Obscure Technologies has experience in this area, itslead scientist having previously reverse engineered the Microsoft XBOX. 6. Description of Efforts Made to Solicit Offers from as ManyOfferors as Practicable. Market research and discussions with industry experts found no other technically acceptablesources with the required expertise and experience for this effort. 7. Determination of Fair and Reasonable Cost. Costs will be found to be fair and reasonable prior to issuance of contract. Labor pricesencountered are similar to those that are paid to PHd researchers and Project/Program Managers. 8. Actions to Remove Barriers to Future Competition. The results of this contract will be publicized at conferences and published in academic journals.Open source software resulting from this contract will be made freely available. Other academicswill be free to build upon it.The data that is created will be made available within the constraints of the Common Rule (45CFR 46) governing the use of human subject data.
