Georgia Tech Gets $17 Million Defense Deal For Cyberattack AttributionGeorgia Tech Gets $17 Million Defense Deal For Cyberattack Attribution
US Department of Defense awards research to work on technique for quick attribution of cyberattack with hard evidence.
December 1, 2016
The Georgia Institute of Technology has received a $17.3 million contract from the US Department of Defense to develop a system that will quickly identify the actors behind cyberattacks through scientific reasoning and analytical techniques, says Georgia Tech News Center. The research will, over four-and-a-half-years, build Rhamnousia, an attribution framework that will eventually help deter future attacks through sanctions and policy decisions.
The project’s principal investigator Manos Antonakakis says the researchers would “use machine learning and algorithms to scale up the attribution process to help companies and the government protect against those bad actors."
The aim of the project ultimately is to detect the intrusion and attribute it so that the impact can be minimized.
“Attribution is the linchpin for deterrence in cyberspace, and the U.S. government is in need of a repeatable and releasable way forward,” says Michael Farrell, chief scientist at Georgia Tech.
