The Problem This Solution Solves
A scalable, interoperable authentication solution to reduce reliance on passwords and smart card-based authentication across DoD system and applications. Solution must support multiple server and host-based operating systems, be immediately available and proven in a commercial environment, and must demonstrate means for operation within latent or disconnected network environments. Solution must be demonstrated in an operational environment integrated with industry standard network domain management such as Microsoft's Active Directory Domain Services.
The Lastwall platform is a Zero Trust Architecture passwordless authentication and authorization (IDAAS/IDP) system that helps agencies increase their user security and reduce reliance on passwords. Lastwall makes user logins significantly more secure than traditional password based systems, easier for end users and less work for administrators. Lastwall works with existing user repositories such as Active Directory and requires minimal changes to current architecture. The platform can act as a host testing environment for new strong authentication methodologies (eg. video authentication with deep fake detection) and provides strong PKI based authentication capabilities and allows for extra visibility and control of login to both local resources and third party cloud tools. The platform also has a number of options for integrating current and future PKI capabilities (eg. CAC cards, FIDO2 and other TPM based PKI), and addresses near term high level security concerns including Post Quantum Cryptography resiliency to defend against store now, decrypt later attacks. Lastwall has proven to integrate well with existing DoD and cloud systems as demonstrated over the last 3 years of production deployment with the Defense Innovation Unit.
