Workshop will focus in detail on emerging Endpoint Security threats & protection mechanisms. It would also highlight C-DAC’s R&D efforts and developed solutions.
TechnoparkToday.com>> December 3, 2013: Today in this Internet era, though there is a lot of flexibility in accessing services, sharing information & interacting with each other, IT managers are facing tough challenges in addressing the growing cyber security threats. These security threats are sophisticated & stealthy, which can no longer be addressed using perimeter-based security solutions. Over the period, IT security has evolved from perimeter to end points (desktops, laptops, mobile phones etc), keeping the Information Security Officers and IT Managers under constant pressure from the growing sophisticated threats for deploying the right security in safeguarding their networks and systems. Endpoint Security threats mainly propagate through devices, applications & software vulnerabilities, web access, malware, misconfigured networks & systems etc.

In 2012 plenty of Windows-specific holes and vulnerabilities are discovered. Windows Sidebar and Gadgets in Windows Vista and Windows 7 were revealed to be so insecure that Microsoft immediately eliminated them, and gave customers tools to disable them.

As per first quarter of 2013 report, there is a steady growth in mobile malware and a rapid increase in general malware, including AutoRun malware and stealth malware that attacks the master boot record (MBR).
C-DAC in Cyber Security & Cyber Forensics:
Cyber Security & Cyber Forensics is one of the focus R&D areas of Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC). C-DAC is focusing on developing solutions/products to fit into the Cyber security Ecosystem, in such a way that it can provide the needed expertise to various agencies at different levels of security architecture like perimeter security, biometrics, SCADA Security, endpoint security, Honeynets, application security, anti malware solutions, unified threat management, mobile security and so on. Also new hardware and software products are to be developed to deal with high-speed networks with encryption technology to protect the data during transmission as well as storing it at end points paving a direction to the cyber forensics world.
