EB Control as a Solution to Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) Management

November 6, 2023


In an era defined by the relentless pursuit of data security and privacy, the need for innovative solutions to protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) has never been greater. 

As CISOs, CSOs, CTOs, and other security-minded professionals seek robust mechanisms to safeguard sensitive data in compliance with federal guidelines, EB Control Technology emerges as a potent ally. 

Developed by Everything Blockchain Inc., this end-to-end, zero-trust data security platform redefines the landscape of CUI management, offering unparalleled encryption mechanisms, user-centric features, and flexible deployment options.

Why Encryption Matters

At the core of EB Control’s data security framework lies encryption – a sophisticated process that transforms discernible data into an inaccessible format, rendering it comprehensible only to authorized individuals. This transformation, from plaintext to ciphertext, relies on complex algorithms, with EB Control employing the renowned Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm. AES, supported by a 256-bit key strength, safeguards the confidentiality of data, making it impervious to unauthorized access.

The importance of encryption goes beyond confidentiality; it also ensures data integrity. Unauthorized tampering or alteration to ciphertext, without the key, renders the data useless to any interloper. AES-256, a widely recognized encryption standard, offers a robust defense mechanism for sensitive data, whether at rest or in transit.

EB Control Technology Overview

EB Control offers a comprehensive framework for managing, accessing, and sharing CUI. It employs end-to-end encryption, multi-factor authentication, patented Transient Symmetric Key Technology, and patented Multi-factor Geofencing System, creating a fortified defense against unauthorized access and data breaches. The Zero Trust approach, emphasizing continuous verification, further decentralizes data control and reduces the risk of breaches while ensuring compliance with CUI requirements.

Encryption Mechanisms

EB Control’s encryption mechanisms are the cornerstone of its security framework. The patented Transient Symmetric Key Technology generates and manages transient symmetric keys, adding an extra layer of security on the user’s local device. AES-256 encryption for data at rest and during transit, combined with Elliptic-curve Diffie-Hellman (ECDH) within TLS for secure data exchange, guarantees data confidentiality and integrity.

The Multi-factor Geofencing System enhances security by integrating geolocation information into the encryption and decryption process. This feature ensures that sensitive data can only be accessed within designated geographical locations, a crucial aspect of CUI management.

Data Rights Management & Time Fencing

EB Control’s Data Rights Management (DRM) and Time Fencing features offer data owners granular control over their information. DRM prevents unauthorized actions like printing, copying, saving, or forwarding, ensuring only authorized usage. Time Fencing enables setting access time restrictions, defining precise timeframes for data access. These features are crucial for managing CUI in a secure and compliant manner, aligning with federal guidelines.

Identity & Access Management (IAM)

EB Control integrates seamlessly with identity and access management solutions like Azure Active Directory, SAML, LDAP, and ADFS, ensuring secure user authentication and authorization, a critical aspect of CUI management.

Deployment Flexibility

EB Control can be deployed on-premises or via a cloud-based SaaS model, offering organizations flexibility to align with their operational needs and security policies.
