Abstract

In today’s world, nearly everything is connected to computers or the internet, so there is a necessity to make sure everything is secure. This is especially true within the military or government, where every system is important to protect both the lives of our soldiers and civilians. I was able to help with this endeavor by creating Risk Management Framework (RMF) documentation and Powershell scripts to aid in the increase of security within Marine Corps Light Armored Vehicles Command and Control (LAV-C2) systems. For the RMF documentation, we took existing records of necessary security levels and created new documents filled with security controls to be used from now on during the project, as well as a template for future changes or additions. In addition, we created Powershell scripts to aid in speeding up the testing phases of the project, which will increase the time available to develop new security advancements. Both the RMF documents and the Powershell scripts will help in future advancements and activities within the LAV-C2 project​ and will serve as a basis for if security researchers find something else that needs to be changed.
