For Immediate Release:

NSA's SPOCK Program Selects Bodacion's HYDRA Web Server

National Security Agency Deploys Bodacion's Secure Web Technology to Deflect 
Hackers, Shorten Training Time and Reduce Maintenance Costs

BARRINGTON, ILLINOIS (April 2, 2003) — The Security Proof of Concept Keystone 
(SPOCK), a Department of Defense consortium of corporate and government 
organizations sponsored by the National Security Agency (NSA), has selected 
Bodacion Technologies' HYDRA secure Web Services appliance as its primary Web 
server.  The NSA cited HYDRA's extreme resistance to all known hacking attacks, 
as well as the appliance's simplicity and reliability, as reasons for choosing 
Bodacion's product.

"After SPOCK demonstrations showed HYDRA's improved security and 
maintainability over current solutions, the NSA saw a clear fit for their own 
needs," said Eric Ridvan Uner, Co-Founder of Bodacion Technologies, Co-Inventor 
of HYDRA and his company's chief liaison to government agencies.  "The NSA, of 
course, has a vested interest in making sure that hackers stay out of any NSA 
Web site, and so the SPOCK program selected HYDRA for its high level of 
resistance to hacking attacks of all kinds."

Compatibility and maintenance were also primary SPOCK concerns, according to 
Uner.  HYDRA was a simple drop-in replacement for the legacy solution, he said, 
which required minimal deployment effort.  HYDRA also will require less 
maintenance and training than the legacy system, he added.

Last year, SPOCK conducted a demonstration of HYDRA consisting of security 
claims by Bodacion Technologies and tests jointly agreed to by the 
participants.  The results were that all Bodacion’s claims were verified.  More 
than 350 technologists from civil and defense entities are involved in the 
SPOCK program; currently there are 65 security-related corporations and 19 
government agencies participating in the program. 

Bodacion’s appliance is designed specifically for secure Web Services computing 
and has captured the attention of senior authorities at national intelligence 
and Department of Defense organizations because it does not suffer from common 
vulnerabilities of general purpose computers/servers that run general purpose 
operating systems.  For example, HYDRA is the only Web server known to prevent 
“tunneling,” a technique malicious system users apply to observe the activities 
of other network users.  Such protection is vital for federal agencies with 
multiple levels of security interests.

Major General (retired) Michael Davidson, a former assistant to the Joint 
Chiefs of Staff and an advisor to Bodacion executives, facilitates the 
company's relationships with government organizations.

“For federal agencies continually assaulted by hackers and other malicious 
cyber-criminals, HYDRA represents a critical Internet security technology,” 
Davidson said.
