cyberThe U.S. Air Force has selected the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to develop a new way to catch advanced persistent threats inside a network under a $7.1 million Air Force Research Laboratory contract, Defense Systems reported Tuesday.

Kevin McCaney writes that the service tasked MIT to apply transparent computing technology to help IT personnel tag and track network activities, as well as to identify APTs.

McCaney reports that the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is also pursuing its own program in transparent computing to facilitate network visibility through the use of a multilayer data collection architecture and an analysis and enforcement engine.

MIT’s contract with AFRL runs through August 2019, the report said.
