MIT Publishes Framework to Evaluate Cybersecurity Methods


Metior is a brand-new methodology created by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers to assess the efficacy of various cybersecurity obfuscation techniques. In a blog post published on Wednesday, it was said that the framework quantifies the knowledge an attacker could obtain from a victim programme that is obscured.

It can be computationally expensive and impracticable for real-world systems to use traditional security approaches that try to prevent side-channel attacks, which require watching a program’s behaviour to gather hidden information.x000D Instead, programmers frequently use obfuscation techniques to restrict an attacker’s access to sensitive data without totally erasing it.
