The Department of Homeland Security will be showcasing a number of new cybersecurity technologies at the RSA Conference from Feb. 14 to 16 in San Francisco.
This year, the DHS Science and Technology Directorate will demonstrate 12 government-funded solutions that are ready for pilot deployment and commercialization.
S&T staff will be onsite at RSA to introduce the technology, including the REnigma tool that reverse-engineers malware and ImmuneSoft for detecting and healing vulnerabilities in embedded systems. Attendees also can expect to see the CHARIOT tool, which filters open-source social media to remove topics that are irrelevant to cybersecurity analysts.
The other solutions range from behavior-tracking tools for detecting irregular network traffic to scalable technology for community-based malware defense. New platforms will also be displayed, like the Virtual Mobile Infrastructure for securing access from any device to applications and enterprise data running on premise or in the cloud. Those interested can visit the Science and Technology booth and tour the exhibit hall by registering online.
