IIT Kanpur and L&T Technology system have signed a multi-year MoU recently to co-operate in areas of research in industrial and infrastructure cyber security.
The university said a statement that " IIT Kanpur has taken the lead in cyber security by setting up the Interdisciplinary Centre for Cyber Security and Cyber Defence of Critical Infrastructures"
One more statement said is "The Goal behind establishing C3i at IIT Kanpur is to do research, education, training, and to explore and exploit the latest trends in cyber security to create technological safe guards and protect critical infrastructure"
According to the MoU, LTTS and IIT Kanpur will together set-up a Center of Excellence (CoE) in the IIT Kanpur campus and conduct research in the areas of Honeypot (network-attached system set up to entrap cyber-attacks and study hacking attempts), intrusion detection systems, malware analysis, block chain, vulnerability assessment and penetration testing and provide cyber security awareness and training programs. The pact also gives LTTS access to IIT Kanpur’s cutting-edge testbed for critical infrastructure. Both of them have agreed that cyber security as a basic component of every infrastructure which is built from grounds up.
“Cyber attacks across the globe have affected millions of systems over the past few years leading to operational downtime, logistic failures, and production cycle disruption. LTTS’ deep-rooted and proven technological expertise combined with the cyber security research expertise of C3i Center will help counter such cyber attacks,” head of IIT Kanpur computer and science & engineering department Sandeep K Shukla said.
Dr Panda, CEO and Managing Director, L&T Technology Services said, "LTTS' partnership with IIT-Kanpur will open a new chapter in defense and industrial cyber security and pave the way for the creation of safe, secure and smart solutions for India's industrial sector".
