Indiana University Chosen as Partner in Army Cyberattack Research

October 10, 2013

Indiana University scientists are celebrating their selection to help with a $23 million Army push to thwart cyberattacks.

IU and four other schools will work with the Army Research Laboratory to create systems for detecting cyberattacks and predicting their impact under different scenarios.

The partners will also create a response system to counter online attacks in real time. One of the effort’s goals is to enable future networked systems to respond to attacks without the need for human intervention.

IU’s share of the cooperative agreement is $2.6 million. The other schools are Penn State University, Carnegie Mellon University, the University of California Davis and the University of California Riverside.

The project will support 17 faculty, including three from IU, and more than 30 graduate students at the universities.
