Boeing opens information security innovation lab in California

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. – Boeing on July 17 opened a state-of-the-art Information Security Innovation Lab in Huntington Beach, Calif., that will be used to prototype innovative cybersecurity technologies using live networks in a secure yet real-world environment.

The lab’s Wide Area Network backbone, coupled with Boeing Information Solutions’ Cyber Range-in-a-Box, allows modeling and simulation of complex missions and advanced threats to create resilient security solutions. CRIAB is a compact, portable system used to support the development, test and experimentation of cyber tools and techniques, as well as to train today’s network defenders.

“Boeing has made substantial investments in cybersecurity research and development over the past several years, including opening our Cyber Engagement Center in Maryland and completing numerous acquisitions,” said Boeing Information Security Solutions Director Per Beith. “The Huntington Beach lab continues the expansion of our efforts to develop and deliver innovative technologies and capabilities that support cyber operations for our customers today and into the future.”

“This Innovation Lab demonstrates the tremendous breadth and depth of talent that exists at our Huntington Beach site,” said Alex Lopez, Huntington Beach site executive and vice president of Advanced Network & Space Systems. “The employees who design, build, and support our products and services will create sustainable growth for both Boeing and the community.”

The lab contains isolated networks as well as networks securely connected via Boeing’s LabNet, which provides connectivity to all the company’s technology centers worldwide. The isolated networks allow threats and defenses to be modeled in a safe, repeatable environment.
