Cyber Defense Requires Market-ready Tech

Release Date: January 23, 2017

Market-ready technology is key to combating constantly evolving cyber threats. To ensure our nation has a strong cyber defense, S&T’s Homeland Security Advanced Research Projects Agency Cyber Security Division works on finding technology that can bring game changing impacts to our cybersecurity capabilities.

That’s why we’ll be in San Francisco for the RSA Conference, and I invite you to visit the CSD booth to see demos of a dozen mature technology solutions ready for pilot deployment and commercialization.

During these demos, industry representatives will be introduced to this select group of innovative, government-funded cybersecurity technologies. Helping them gain insight will be key CSD performers and staffers who will be on hand to answer questions about the demonstrated technologies and the entire CSD portfolio.

The RSA Conference is one of the leading cybersecurity events in the world. During the conference, industry representatives network and exchange ideas about improving cybersecurity defenses, learn about emerging trends and cyber threats, and gain knowledge that will keep them ahead of cyber adversaries.

The CSD technologies that will be showcased at RSA are:

  • AS-Rank—A tool that ranks Autonomous Systems and organizations in support of internet security, stability, situational awareness and resilience.
  • CHARIOT—A tool that filters open-source social media to eliminate topics irrelevant to cybersecurity analysts.
  • CodeDNA—A scalable, shareable technology that facilitates community-based defense against malware attacks.
  • DDNR—A set of machine-learning algorithms designed to detect system patterns that deviate from normal operation and to respond appropriately.
  • ImmuneSoft—A hybrid static and runtime approach to detecting and healing vulnerabilities in embedded systems.
  • Internet Atlas—A geographic representation of the physical Internet, including nodes, conduits/links and relevant metadata.
  • QUASAR—A threat intelligence and decision support platform that provides cyber defense planners visualization and quantitative analytics to determine the security impact of deploying defenses.
  • REDUCE—A toolset that allows cybersecurity analysts to rapidly discover relationships between malware samples, extract temporal threat intelligence and develop actionable signatures for known and emerging threats.
  • REnigma—A tool that reverse engineers malware.
  • SilentAlarm—An inference-based technology for detecting abnormal network traffic that depends on dynamic network behavior knowledge.
  • Virtual Mobile Infrastructure—A secure platform that provides no data at rest on mobile devices, enabling secure access from any device to applications and enterprise data running in a data center or cloud environment.
  • ZeroPoint—A platform that provides highly effective, high-throughput, next-generation detection and diagnostics of exploit payloads embedded in documents distributed via email and the web.

Even if you’re not registered for RSA, you can visit the CSD booth and tour the entire exhibit hall by getting a complimentary exhibits-only pass on the RSA Website and entering the special CSD guest code: XE7DHSCTCH.

Things get started in the exhibit hall at 5 p.m. on February 13 with a welcome reception. Regular exhibit hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on February 14 and 15, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on February 16.

You also can stay up to date on CSD’s activities at RSA by following us on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #RSAC.
