Ruby Encoder Protects Source Code for US Department of Defense Project
RubyEncoder, an encryption software program used for protecting Ruby source code, developed by UK software company, Inovica, has been chosen to protect a US Department of Defense project.
Engineering and IT services company, Boecore, based in Colorado Springs, CO, has been using RubyEncoder for one of the first Ruby on Rails projects for the US Department of Defense. The project, entitled BoBCAT, is deployed on an internal classified network for Information Assurance (IA) work.
While the classified network protects against external threats, most thefts occur from within, and this is where RubyEncoder has proven indispensable. With RubyEncoder in place, it is not possible for someone to access the server and change the code to transmit classified information;
Boecore also took into consideration the protection of its intellectual property (IP). With BoBCAT being deployed on a server over which Boecore has no direct access or control, it is important that they protect their sotware, which is done by encrypting their code after the Government has approved it. RubyEncoder allows Boecore to bring the source code to the necessary government security reviewers and, once their review is complete, easily encrypt it onsite under controlled circumstances and hand it in directly from there.
In short, RubyEncoder gives Boecore’s BoBCAT application a level of security against malicious source code changes as well as intellectual property protection that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.
RubyEncoder is a product of Inovica Ltd., a UK-based company founded in 1994 by Internet entrepreneur Adrian Teasdale. Aside from RubyEncoder, Teadale won a North East UK Export Award in 2004 for his SourceGuardian Encryption Software.
Boecore is an engineering and information technology services company, headquartered in Colorado Springs, CO. Since 2000 Boecore has grown to have a workforce totalling over 100 employees who support a variety of Defense and Commercial customers in several core technical disciplines.
