Calyam leading efforts to establish zero trust cybersecurity approach for battlefield communications
A Mizzou Engineer is leading efforts to establish a new cybersecurity approach to better protect classified information and communications on the battlefield. Prasad Calyam — Greg L. Gilliom Professor of Cyber Security and director of the Mizzou Center for Cyber Education, Research and Infrastructure — is leading the project as Principal Investigator of a National Security Agency grant.
Approximate computing remains vulnerable to attacks; Mizzou Engineers to present findings at IEEE DATE conference
Companies relying on faster, less precise computing to gain energy efficiency still need to be cautious against cyberattacks, Mizzou Engineers have found.
Designing ‘smart’ security for smart devices
A Mizzou Engineering is developing a flexible, add-on security feature that allows different types of smart devices to intelligently learn from past cyberattacks.
Mizzou Cyber Range to Focus on Cyber Pretense Strategies
Hackers are getting smarter about ways to steal sensitive information from the cloud. Now, a new “Mizzou Cyber Range” will train the next generation of cybersecurity professionals to fight back using cyber pretense strategies. Armed with new grant funding from the National Security Agency, Prasad Calyam and his team are building the Mizzou Cyber Range through the MU Center for Cyber Education, Research and Infrastructure.
Mizzou Engineering’s Chadha protecting your data, identity
While hacking databases is the main way for interested parties to gain users’ personal information, it’s not the only possibility. Intrepid attackers can use perfectly benign means to do so. How? By using readily available aggregate data — for example: census data, medical data focused on how many people in an area suffer from a specific illness, consumer trend data, etc. — and using it to focus on specific individuals.
