For many years, SRI has pioneered cyber security technology to protect vital infrastructures against malicious attacks. SRI’s patented, software-based intrusion detection solution called Event Monitoring Enabling Responses to Anomalous Live Disturbances (EMERALD®) led to today’s network intrusion detection solutions. EMERALD uses lightweight sensors distributed over a network or series of networks for real-time detection of cyber-attack activity.
SRI’s other R&D related to cyber security includes malware threat detection and information sharing, highly predictive blacklisting, cyber-threat analytics, industrial control systems (ICS) in the energy and financial sectors, telecommunications, and the Internet. SRI has been providing technical, managerial, and administrative support to the Department of Homeland Security’s Cyber Security Research and Development Center since the center was established in 2004.
