Submission + - DARPA developing Cyber Targeted-Attack Analyzer Program (paritynews.com)

hypnosec writes: In a bid to protect one of the largest known computer networks on this planet, DARPA is planning to develop a program that will look at the information flow to detect and prevent targeted attacks. The research agency claims that traditional mechanisms to prevent networks from attacks include deployment of static firewalls and patching of any discovered vulnerabilities within the systems in the network. Researchers at DARPA are looking for new ways of protecting networks and are looking at “connections” between information; how it moves about within a network. Dubbed Cyber Targeted-Attack Analyzer, DARPA reveals that the new program will look at information in the network and go about automatically co-relating data sources – even if seemingly unrelated, and will try to understand “how information is connected as the network grows, shifts and changes.”
