RAICS) that analyzes PCB assemblies in this manner. Using complementary imaging hardware, RAICS generates multimodal signatures from an array of industrial sensors and quickly assesses the integrity of the COTS device being scanned. And thanks to AI and automated machine learning, the more RAICS runs, the more robust and adept it becomes.
Similar enduring solutions are needed to protect the embedded code that runs on communications buses within larger systems. The code and components of distributed control networks like smart grids, autonomous vehicle systems and medical monitoring are prime targets for hackers, but an algorithm that leverages machine learning can be applied to continually improve their ability to protect themselves from cyberattacks.
Battelle’s CANProtect technology attaches to and observes the commands sent through cyber-physical networks and searches for anomalies using explicitly programmed machine learning techniques. Like RAICS, the longer it’s in the field, the more adept it becomes at protection. CANProtect can also be used across services and installations, from Apache helicopters to aircraft refuelers.
Those of us who serve our country through the U.S. armed services know all too well that there will always be looming threats to keep at bay and the cybersecurity of our critical systems will continue to face increasing pressure and risk. While the latest shiny new tech objects may seem like the best defense, they can’t be the only tools in our arsenal. To effectively combat dangers and risks while working within the realities and confines of current budget and implementation constraints, it’s imperative that we focus on and emphasize enduring solutions that continually grow smarter over time. The trust and assurance of our nation’s defense systems merit airtight protection that can go the distance.
