One of the original NSA Commercial Solution for Classified (CSfC) Trusted Integrators and a developer of alternatives to current cybersecurity solutions, KMS is a VOSB that provides Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System-based (JCIDS-based) Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E), Information System Security Engineering (ISSE), and DoD and Federal Assessment and Authorization (A&A) services with an emphasis on advancing disruptive technologies and capabilities – such as Quantum Resistant (QR) NSA CSfC Solutions.
Currently, KMS is supporting multiple QR NSA CSfC RDT&E efforts, serving as the customer and Approving Authority (AO) advocate for tailored (AKA ‘extremely deviated’) QR NSA CSfC solutions, and delivering our QR NSA CSfC Immersion Course.
