28 Jun 2016 - Internet attacks: find that effective one
The brute force and sheer scale of current Internet attacks put a heavy strain on classic methods of intrusion detection. Moreover, these methods aren’t prepared for the rapidly growing number of connected devices: scalability is a major issue. PhD researcher Rick Hofstede, of the University of Twente’s CTIT institute, proposes another way of monitoring internet traffic, thus tracing those attacks that actually have an effect and not all the others. The open source software he developed, is already being tested and used by several organizations in the world. Hofstede defends his PhD thesis on June 29.
