Scientists at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) and Towson University may have identified a new technique for strengthening network cybersecurity.
The researchers followed the hypothesis that malicious network activity would exhibit maliciousness early in the transmission process, devising a tool that stopped transmitting traffic after a given number of messages had been sent.
The resulting compressed network traffic was analyzed and compared to analysis performed on the original network traffic, which validated the theory.
ARL's Sidney Smith said, "This strategy should be effective in reducing the amount of network traffic sent from the sensor to central analyst system. Ultimately, this strategy could be used to increase the reliability and security of Army networks."
