Cybersecurity research gets $7 million

The Office of Naval Research has granted the National Center for Advanced Secure Systems Research an additional $7 million in funding.

The Office of Naval Research has granted the National Center for Advanced Secure Systems Research (NCASSR) an additional $7 million in funding to conduct research on, among other topics, technology for deducing suspicious patterns in data and on ways to allow sensors to communicate in a secure fashion. The group will also examine methods of preventing unauthorized intrusion into energy grid systems and other highly sensitive networks.

The NCASSR is run by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois. The Office of Naval Research initially granted the NCASSR $5 million in funding last year.
