Cyber Security

The world depends on secure information systems and networks. SRI cyber security technology protects vital infrastructures against malicious attacks in these key areas:

Cyber Security Solutions

With government and industry partners, SRI strives to improve the security of infrastructures supporting the power grid, refineries, financial systems, telecommunications, and the Internet. SRI's major projects, products, and solutions include:

Emerging Computer Security Threats

For everyone from network administrators to individual Internet-connected PC users, SRI's BotHunter® system detects malware threats, such as botnets, spambots, spyware, Trojan exfiltrators, worms, and adware. 

Malware Threat Information

To help network administrators understand current and emerging cyber security threats, SRI's Malware Threat Center posts daily updates of firewall filters, malware-related domain name system (DNS) names, antivirus statistics, intrusion detection system signatures, and malware binary data.

Cyberspace Operations

Enabling computer network attack (CNA), computer network exploitation (CNE), and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, SRI's Cyberspace Operations team provides rapid development of advanced technical solutions for government clients. Integrating expertise in R&D, system development, and operations, the team delivers novel solutions tailored to clients’ concepts of operation. Team members specialize in wireless, network infrastructure, and industrial control systems.

* SRI's participation is funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Science and Technology Directorate.
