SocialCyber: Hybrid AI to Protect Integrity of Open Source Code

Project Lead:  Dr. Sergey Bratus                                                            

Sponsoring Organization:  DARPA


Project Synopsis:  DoD depends on open-source software (OSS) throughout its supply chain, including operating systems, virtualization systems, hypervisors and tool chains for software development. SocialCyber will explore capabilities to detect and counteract cyber-social operations that may target OSS developer communities, in particular hybrid methods that combine analyses of source code, development-related communication artifacts, and multi-modal social media activities related to open source development.
