DHARMA – Dynamic Risk Assesment for Heterogeneus Threats

The DHARMA Project is devoted to the development of a framework of Dynamic Risk Assessment and Management for ICT environments, taking into account new types of threats such as the different vector attacks used in Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs). . Besides classical penetration techniques based on the exploitation of different software vulnerabilities, the new attacks use a combination of customized attack vectors for a specific organization and employees, including physical intrusions, social engineering, side channels, non-authorized information usage, etc.

DHARMA project is proposing a multilayer architecture with different heterogeneous sensors in order to detect not only traditional attacks, but also changes and deviations in an organizational context: applications and networks usage deviations, power consumption, physical security and video surveillance, ambient sensors, social networks activities and even the modelling of potential insider threats.
