Evaluation Methods for Internet Security Technology (EMIST)

The main objective of the NSF/DHS-sponsored EMIST (Evaluation Methods for Internet Security Technology) research initiative is to develop scientifically rigorous testing frameworks and methodologies for evaluating approaches to large-scale network defenses. Their goal has been to expand the rigor with which we model the protection claims of malware defense algorithms, particularly as we design the metrics that will be used to evaluate and compare competing malware approaches. To this end, we consider how to more rigorously express defense specifications, formally validate or refute desired properties of these systems, and employ simulation and emulation experiments to fully stress algorithm performance. So,this technology is going to be one of the strong soluton for security.
