UPES Dehradun students develop software to shield ISRO data from hackers

Quodsi everti ancillae vim qui lorem persius petentium UPES Dehradun students develop software to shield ISRO data from hackers

NEW DELHI, APRIL (ENA) Six students from the University of Petroleum and Engineering Studies (UPES), Dehradun, have developed a software tool with an aim to prevent the hacking of highly sensitive online documents of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). The idea is to divert the attacker to a random user.

In addition to students of UPES, around 440 B.Tech students from 13 states have been working on various problems assigned by ISRO as a part of Hackathon 2017. The students had two days’ time to figure out the solution for various problems.

The Hackathon 2017 began on April 1, 2017, and continued until April 2, 2017. The Hackathon was conducted as a part of ‘Digital India Mission’, an initiative of Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi.

The students were given 36 hours of time to figure out solutions to 21 problems. The software has been named as ‘Cyber Eye’. The beauty of the software is that it identifies the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) and hides the IP address of a computer or machine, which the hacker wants to have access to.

UPES Professors Mr. Amber Hayat and Mr. Keshav Kaushik mentored the students. All six students have been registered as ‘ethical hackers’. Mr. Kaushik revealed that the software developed by them would help ISRO in protecting the sensitive documents and information.
