Exploration of In-Memory Analytics
Kristine Monteith | 20-ERD-053
The goal of this project is to expand our knowledge of computer memory usage and to use that knowledge to develop approaches and algorithms that enable a robust defense against memory-based cyberattacks. Our contribution will be a body of research that will provide a basis for the development of in-memory cyberdefense strategies to protect U.S. government systems.
