 About Cyber-TA
This website is the home page of the Cyber-Threat Analytics (Cyber-TA) research project. Cyber-TA is an initiative to accelerate the ability of organizations to defend against Internet-scale threats by delivering technology that will enable the next-generation of privacy-preserving digital threat analysis centers. These centers must be fully automatic, scalable to alert volumes and data sources that characterize attack phenomena across millions of IP addresses, and higher fidelity in their ability to recognize attack commonalities, prioritize, and isolate the most critical threats. Cyber-TA brings together leading researchers in large-scale network intrusion defenses with leaders from the information privacy community to develop next-generation wide-area collaborative defense technologies that maximally balance the needs for contributor privacy with the need for rich-content data to drive new threat detection and mitigation systems. This web site provides links to our research publications, software releases, web portal access to our live threat reconnaissance center, and registration information for becoming an active data contributor.
