Georgia Tech to Help DARPA, AFRL Study Data Transfer Security

1 min read

research and development RDThe Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and Air Force Research Laboratory have awarded $4.2 million to Georgia Tech’s College of Computing to support research on how to secure data transfers.

Georgia Tech said Thursday the four-year “Theia” project aims to track the movement of data between computers and Internet hosts to determine if malicious code intercepts data during transfer.

“If we have the ability to fully track how data is processed until it reaches the intended recipient, then we can better detect and stop advanced persistent threats,” said Wenke Lee, primary investigator and professor in the College of Computing.

The research will focus on data flow through user, program, file system storage, network output and back, Georgia Tech added.

Lee noted that the goal is to establish transparency and visibility into data processing functions.
