White House crowdsources for cybersecurity ideas
Thursday - 5/20/2010, 5:46pm EDT
- What are the game changing ideas in cybersecurity research and development? That's the question posed in a blog post by White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Howard Schmidt, and federal CTO Aneesh Chopra. The White House announced the creation of a cybersecurity forum with the goal of promoting the exchange of information and ideas on how to advance federal cybersecurity. So far, they've come up with three game-changing concepts: Making systems Moving Targets (systems that move in multiple dimensions will disadvantage an attacker); creating a 'security will' tailored to the needs of a particular transaction, rather than the other way around; and creating cyber economic incentives that reward good cybersecurity practices.
- The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is looking for technology to stop insider threats. Known as Suspected Malicious Insider Threat Elimination, the technology will be able to predict insider attacks, determine when one is underway and detect if an attack has already taken place. The agency will use forensics to find clues of past cyber attacks and use that information to create a more secure network. Government Computer News reports that the technology will be used to find individuals operating on U.S. networks.
