US Army Awards Rebellion Defense Contract to Enhance Adversary Emulation Tool

The U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Command, Control and Communications-Tactical has awarded Rebellion Defense a Phase 3 Small Business Innovation Research contract to provide continuous automated penetration testing capabilities through Nova, an adversary emulation solution.

Nova is meant to reproduce state-backed adversary tactics, techniques and procedures. According to Rebellion, it facilitates automated penetration testing and red teaming activities in enterprise network and military software factory operational environments.

Barry Sowerwine, the company’s interim CEO, said Nova could harden Army systems against cyberattacks.

Under the SBIR contract, Rebellion is tasked with enhancing Nova so PEO C3T can further automate cyber red team testing for potential use in DevSecOps and runtime operational assessments.

The company said its collaboration with PEO C3T supports recent guidance on agile software development. The National Security Agency and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency have advised organizations to use automated scanning tools to protect continuous integration/continuous delivery environments, Rebellion said.

In June, Rebellion secured a follow-on deal with the National Nuclear Security Administration to defend critical infrastructure using Nova.
