Modeling cybersecurity after the human body
"We are going to have more than 40 billion devices connected on the internet. What that means is we have 40 billion doors to protect and secure. And you know, with that number, its just impossible to use the tradition cybersecurity solutions to protect that," said Salim Hariri, a UA electrical computer engineering professor and the project's principal investigator.

Cyber security breaches, Tucson expert has the answer
It seems like we can't avoid it, hackers getting a hold of our personal information. In fact, recently a Russian group hacked 1.2 billion user names and passwords. Not to mention, major companies like JP Morgan Chase issuing warnings to 76 million households. But there is some groundbreaking work being done in a lab at the University of Arizona College of Engineering. Professor Salim Hariri has been working on software for 10 years. It would allow computer systems to manage themselves, it's called Cyber Footprint.
Startup Avirtek combats hackers by scanning your cyber-footprint
Every time you use a computer, you leave behind a record of what you do, what programs you use and plenty of personal information. Tucson-based startup Avirtek wants to harness those digital fingerprints to help protect you. They call it user cyber-Footprint. The company, born in a University of Arizona laboratory, offers software solutions to cyber-security issues and bundles them with a variety of hardware appliances. The goal of these appliances is to replace and integrate several separate parts of the the network landscape, including routers, storage servers, firewalls and anti-virus protection among others.
UA team developing software to prevent cyber attacks
Hacking into servers and stealing personal information seems to be getting easier by the day. "We feel attacks are being launched very fast and humans managing the attack detection and protection, it's just not feasible anymore," said Salim Hariri, a professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Arizona. Hariri has developed technology where the computer could immediately detect a security breach and stop the hack in progress before a person is even aware of something is wrong.

AVIRTEK successfully demonstrated the ability of its Autonomic Network Defense (AND)
In July, 2006 AVIRTEK successfully demonstrated the ability of its Autonomic Network Defense (AND) system to successfully detect all types of network attacks, known and unknown with 99% accurate detection rate, and less than 1% false alarm during the final demonstration of the AND prototype held at AVIRTEK headquarters in Tucson, AZ. AND is part of AMIDS.
