Technical Tuesday – 29 March 2011 – Deep Packet Inspection for Cybersecurity ASW&R by Jeff Kuhn of Pangia Technologies

Posted by on Mar 29, 2011 in Events Archive | No Comments

ASW&R is an acronym for Attack Sensing, Warning, and Response. It is an expansion of an earlier term, Attack Sensing and Warning (AS&W), used in some circles to define the activity of identifying cyber attacks and providing actionable information about them. Response was added to the term sometime during the past ten years or so to expand the activity and include the possibility that something might actually be done in response to an identified attack. This discussion covers the use of Deep Packet Inspection technologies for cybersecurity ASW&R based on the presenter’s knowledge of current programs, practical knowledge of network security, and views regarding future potential.
