据janes网2020年8月3日报道

DARPA代理主任彼得·海纳姆宣布,该局与联合人工智能中心 (JAIC)一起加快推进AI与网络安全和网络战的集成。

开发AI工具并用于网络领域,是DARPA长期战略中深入推进的几个关注焦点之一。称“研究AI融入网络,是先进技术开发‘空间广阔的领域’”。

该局旗舰项目之一“利用自主技术对抗网络对手系统” (HACCS) 计划,旨在推动将AI赋能技术集成到网络战。

 他说,HACCS计划总体目标是开发“自主软件助理”,以利用僵尸网络植入有针对性地打击网络攻击,以及大规模恶意软件攻击。这些HACCS软件助手“将开发出能准确识别僵尸感染网络、网络设备类型及潜在稳定访问矢量的技术和算法。”

DARPA sees ‘rich space’ for advanced AI in cyber operations

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), in conjunction with the Pentagon’s Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC), are setting their sights on the rapidly expanding intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and cybersecurity and cyber warfare operations, the agency’s Acting Director Peter Highnam said.

Development of AI tools and applications for use in the cyber realm is one of several focus areas Highnam and other senior DARPA leaders plan to delve further into, as part of the agency’s long-term strategy. “When we look into the confluence of AI into cyber, that is a hugely rich space” for the development of advanced technologies, he said. “The speed in which you have to operate has demanded that AI technologies be inserted into that mission space,“ he told a small group of reporters on 30 July.

One of the agency’s flagship efforts, the Harnessing Autonomy for Countering Cyberadversary Systems (HACCS) programme, is making strides in integrating AI-enhanced technologies into cyber operations, Highnam said.

The overall goal of the HACCS programme is the development of “autonomous software agents” capable of countering targeted network attacks by botnet implants, as well as large-scale malware campaigns, according to an agency fact sheet. These HACCS software agents “will develop the techniques and algorithms necessary to measure the accuracy of identifying botnet-infected networks, the accuracy of identifying the type of devices residing in a network, and the stability of potential access vectors,” it said.
