After two months of intensive research, D-Tech LLC, a research firm specializing in applied machine learning (ML) and cybersecurity in Northern Va, released the source code of ML Ex-Lab, an ML model selection and optimization tool as open source on GitHub. This tool addresses the problems of disorganization and lack of consistency in typical ML model training processes, and drastically reduces the time required for ML model training and optimization.
As part of an ongoing research project utilizing applied ML for cybersecurity, the D-Tech team plans to work closely with the ICS Cybersecurity for Manufacturing Lab at NIST to conduct simulated cyber attack testing and to analyze the test results.
D-Tech LLC has been awarded a Phase II contract as part of the small business innovation research program (SBIR) for the Department of Navy (DON). The Phase II project, “Advanced Threat Detection and Analysis Using Multi-Dimensional Machine Learning for Industrial Control Systems (ICS)”, will focus on keeping DON industrial control systems (ICS) protected from harmful cyber-attacks.
