    "Hackers have been breaking through a lot of government agency's defenses these past years, and DARPA thinks it's high time to do something about it. Pentagon's mad science division has launched a new program called Rapid Attack Detection, Isolation and Characterization (RADICS), which aims to develop innovative technologies that can quickly detect and respond to cyber attacks. Not just any cyber attacks, though: RADICS was specifically created to deflect security threats on critical infrastructures in the US, especially those that are vital to the Department of Defense's missions. The agency likely wants to make sure the government can quickly detect and fight off terrorists and/or hackers trying to switch off the country's electricity or transportation systems."

    DARPA Wants Networks to Find and Fix Security Holes — In Seconds

    "Pentagon researchers think humans take too long to detect software vulnerabilities, tipping the scales in favor of the criminals who want to exploit them."

    "The Defense Department’s emerging technology research team is looking for an automated system that detects and contains cyber attacks, providing early warning, isolating networks and characterizing threats. "

    "The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is hosting a Proposers Day on Dec. 14 for its upcoming Rapid Attack Detection, Isolation and Characterization program, or RADICS, according to a new notice. The agency is particularly interested in technology that can detect network anomalies signaling a threat or attack, map out industrial control systems and analyze system protocols — especially for threats directed at the power grid and related systems, the notice said. "
