The world depends on secure information systems and networks. SRI cyber security technology protects vital infrastructures against malicious attacks in these key areas:
Cyber Security Solutions
With government and industry partners, SRI strives to improve the security of infrastructures supporting the power grid, refineries, financial systems, telecommunications, and the Internet. SRI's major projects, products, and solutions include:
Support for the Department of Homeland Security's Cyber Security Research and Development Center*
Cyber-Threat Analytics program
BLADE drive-by download immunization system
Highly Predictive Blacklisting service
Eureka malware analysis service
Research activities to improve security of industrial control systems (ICS) in the energy and financial sectors, telecommunications, and the Internet
Emerging Computer Security Threats
For everyone from network administrators to individual Internet-connected PC users, SRI's BotHunter® system detects malware threats, such as botnets, spambots, spyware, Trojan exfiltrators, worms, and adware.
Malware Threat Information
To help network administrators understand current and emerging cyber security threats, SRI's Malware Threat Center posts daily updates of firewall filters, malware-related domain name system (DNS) names, antivirus statistics, intrusion detection system signatures, and malware binary data.
Enabling computer network attack (CNA), computer network exploitation (CNE), and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, SRI's Cyberspace Operations team provides rapid development of advanced technical solutions for government clients. Integrating expertise in R&D, system development, and operations, the team delivers novel solutions tailored to clients’ concepts of operation. Team members specialize in wireless, network infrastructure, and industrial control systems.
* SRI's participation is funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Science and Technology Directorate.
Using advanced privacy technologies to enable informed and controlled information sharing.
The Center conducts research and development aimed at providing IoT developers, integrators, and users with effective tools and methods for building and managing secure, privacy-preserving and maintainable IoT systems.
SRI is developing an advanced system that would quickly help detect APTs and other increasingly sophisticated attacks.
By playing a game, citizen scientists can help increase reliability of mission-critical software systems.
