High-speed security. Internet access and commercial applications are essential to daily life for Navy personnel, but those services need to be secure — and fast. So Ireland designed a tool that automates checklist creation for the Defense Information Systems Agency's Security Technical Implementation Guides. The tool imports the latest benchmark content for unreviewed items, runs the Security Content Automation Protocol, imports the results and performs additional checks on supported "not reviewed" items. Thanks to his efforts, it's now easier for administrators to finalize checklists, and the Navy has saved 21,500 man-hours and more than $7.5 million a year.
