As computational and data-driven modeling spreads through almost all disciplines, security of campus cyberinfrastructure (CI) is becoming increasingly important not only to protect intellectual property, but to secure a competitive advantage. Growth in facilities and projects funded by industrial partners and US government agencies creates new requirements in information security and assurance. Designed for open science, the Purdue campus CI does not currently have infrastructure in place to support the wide variety of security requirements coming from the growing volume of aerospace, defense, and industrial projects.
This rapid pace of expanding partnerships has outpaced the campus cybersecurity framework, limiting the opportunities for researchers and students. This project will bridge this gap by integrating powerful industry-standard network monitoring tools with the entire campus research network and developing adaptive intrusion and anomaly detection and response strategies for a security-assured campus CI. This project is built on a strong campus partnership among cyber security researchers and educators, IT professionals and the engineering community.
