UC Davis Teams With Other Universities On National Cybersecurity Research Project

UC Davis researchers, in collaboration with several other universities, are developing new ways to test defenses against attacks on computer networks by hackers, worms and viruses. The EMIST project (Evaluation Methods in Internet Security Technology), supported by a grant of $5.3 million from the National Science Foundation, will use a new testbed for cybersecurity research, utilizing a network of computers that works in the same way as the Internet, but is isolated from the global computer network.
