The U.S. Army Research Laboratory has awarded as much as $48 million to
researchers trying to build computer-security systems that can identify
even the most subtle human-exploiting attacks and respond without human
The project will focus on detecting specific opponents and types of attack
online, measuring the risk of specific activities, and changing the
security environment to block or minimize those threats with the least
cost and trouble to the victim.
The more difficult part of the research will be to develop models of human
behavior that allow security systems decide, accurately and on their own,
whether actions by humans are part of an attack (whether the humans
involved realize it or not).
The Army Research Lab (ARL) announced Oct. 8 a grant of $23.2 million to
fund a five-year cooperative effort among a team of researchers at Penn
State University, the University of California, Davis, Univ. California,
Riverside and Indiana University. The five-year program comes with the
option to extend it to 10 years with the addition of another $25 million
The goal is to develop and evidence-based set of guidelines and analyses
that would allow ARL security specialists to understand the security
stance and vulnerability of Department of Defense computers, and build
systems that would help mitigate them.
