NYU Polytechnic Researches Scale DPI with New Hardware

The Polytechnic Institute of New York University announced that ".. H. Jonathan Chao (pictured below), who heads the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly), and Industry Assistant Professor N. Sertac Artan have developed and patented a hardware solution to revolutionize this increasingly critical cybersecurity function".

See "New Hardware Solution Offers Cybersecurity Protection Well Before Malware or Virus Reaches Personal Computer" - here.


"Effective DPI examines every packet entering a router switch. Its contents are compared against an ever-growing catalogue of known viruses or attack signatures. With millions of packets arriving each second, the process is often accomplished by a network of processors running parallel searches on portions of data packets — an approach that doesn't scale well to high-speed traffic. Chao and Artan devised a scheme for consolidating the inspection process to a single node, compressing the catalogue of attack signatures to fit on one chip. This allows service providers to streamline their DPI strategy, using fewer resources without compromising efficacy or speed. With a prototype already developed, Chao and Artan are testing their solution with the goal of licensing the technology"
