DARPA Taps Raytheon for Cybersecurity Research Program
Raytheon announced today it has been selected by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to support its Anomaly Detection at Multiple Scales program,Â a cybersecurity initiative that will use algorithms to better detect anomalous behaviors and insider threats. Raytheon will create, adapt and apply technology to the problem of anomaly characterization and detection in large data sets.
According to Raytheon,Â the ADAMS project will use data collected by Raytheonâ€˜s endpoint audit and investigation solution known as SureView. The specific goal of ADAMS researchers is to detect anomalous behaviors shortly after a trusted insider â€œturnsâ€ and begins committing malicious acts.
â€œThis project will provide unprecedented understanding of the insider threat at a time when the U.S. government is mandating that agencies implement automated insider threat detection capabilities to protect their classified information systems,â€ said Steve Hawkins, vice president of Raytheonâ€™s Intelligence and Information Systemsâ€™ Information Security Solutions business. â€œThe ADAMS program will ensure that operationally proven tools such as SureView can be further enhanced to keep pace with the ever-evolving nature of the insider threat and allow analysts to better identify precursor behaviors before damaging incidents occur.â€
Raytheonâ€™s SureView is an appliance-based solution that detects threats by auditing end-user behavior on computer endpoints for policy violations and high-risk activity, such as accessing classified or proprietary data and trying to send it outside the firewall.
ADAMS will leverage massive data sets from large computer end-user populations observed in live, operational environments. According to the company, DARPA has stated it wants the technology developed by ADAMS researchers to bolster the capabilities of existing sensor suites currently employed by cybersecurity analysts and operators.
We are certainly in a time when this is very, very dangerous, there is a deep inter tie between the Government and so, so many areas of our lives we can't even begin to imagine how much the Feerral Government is our lives deeper than they should be.
They can so easily arrest us with out anybody really knowing ever.
This is because of Obama's NDAA law this is where this comes from and this is why it's dangerous.
If you even THINK of a crime--- YOU WILL BE ARRESTED!!!
If Alex Jones,Â Glenn Beck end up dead,Â the Government had something to do with it we can bet on it.
Internal Homeland Security document indicates a program to predict criminal intent is being tested on members of the public, raising questions about whether it's a bit too close to a real-life Minority Report.
An internal U.S. Department of Homeland Security document indicates that a controversial program designed to predict whether a person will commit a crime is already being tested on some members of the public voluntarily, CNET has learned.
If this sounds a bit like the Tom Cruise movie called "Minority Report," or the CBS drama "Person of Interest," it is. But where "Minority Report" author Philip K. Dick enlisted psychics to predict crimes, DHS is betting on algorithms: it's building a "prototype screening facility" that it hopes will use factors such as ethnicity, gender, breathing, and heart rate to "detect cues indicative of mal-intent."
