DARPA Aims to Accelerate Zero-Day Threat Detection Via Computer-Human Collaboration Tech Program

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has launched a 42-month program that aims to develop new platforms designed to speed up the detection of zero-day vulnerabilities through computer-human collaboration.

The Computers and Humans Exploring Software Security program will deal with five technical areas and one of those areas will initially focus on effort to determine and analyze the process used by hackers to reason over source code and other software artifacts, DARPA said Wednesday.

The second technical area of the CHESS program aims to develop technology platforms that work to patch vulnerabilities in compiled binaries and source code, while the two succeeding areas will focus on the development of evaluation and testing criteria for the collaborative computer-human platforms.

The fifth technical area will focus on integration with plans to move the platform to commercial and government partners.

“Through CHESS, we’re looking to gather, understand and convert the expertise of human hackers into automated analysis techniques that are more accessible to a broader range of technologists,” said Dustin Fraze, CHESS program manager at DARPA’s information innovation office.

DARPA will hold a proposers day Thursday, April 19, in Arlington, Virginia.
