TitlesDNS - secure DNS: passive monitoring of the DNS traffic for the detection of cyber-attacks
Project id.72
Reference sectorICT
IP Protection Levelnone
Description of the innovation projectThe solution Pluribus One aims to bring to BIAT 2018 is an innovative and comprehensive protection solution, which enables detection, prevention, and reaction against the most widespread computer threats. Examples of the threats the solution is effective against are phishing, ransomware, cryptolocker. The solution is based on the passive analysis of the DNS traffic (that is the analysis of the requests toward the Domain Name System which allows to resolve Internet Domain names into IP addresses) generated by the users of a given network. The analysis of this traffic actually allows to discover hosts in a network which are compromised or which are connecting to malicious internet addresses.
State of dev.Prototype
Industrial applicationThe solution is secure DNS service, which prevents users and companies from falling victim of cyber-attacks. Our passive DNS analysis infrastructure, consists both a net of sensors (that will be installed at the customer premises) and a centralized analysis platform.
Market segmentThe sDNS solution is foreseen to be offered with a baseline version of the protection service, which is offered to the users in exchange of the data generated within a network. Advanced version of the service, will be offered upon the payment of an annual fee calculated on the basis of the number of hosts connected to the protected network.
Advantage factorWith respect to its competitors, Pluribus One intends to exploit its rich know-how on the development of solutions based on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, to deliver a service with distinguishing and advanced protection capabilities.
Commercial challengeThe solution will also enable Pluribus One to have real-time visibility on the ongoing threats, enabling it to sell cyber-intelligence in terms of blacklists and information on the threats detected through the platform.
