Cybersecurity system visualizes the ghosts in our machines

Japanese lab brings cinematic flair to network monitoring

Daedalus

TOKYO -- Cyberattacks are an ever-present danger in the digital age, yet for most of us, they are out of sight and out of mind. But what if we could see the threats with our own eyes? Visualization, according to a cybersecurity expert in Japan, can go a long way toward raising awareness and fortifying defenses.

This is the thinking behind Daedalus, a network monitoring system developed by the Cybersecurity Laboratory at the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, or NICT.
