Einstein 2 Detection System to be Fully Deployed by Year's End
Einstein 3 Deployment to Begin in 2011
The Department of Homeland Security should complete deployment of its intrusion detection system known as Einstein 2 by year's end, Secretary Janet Napolitano says.

"This year, we will complete the deployment of the Einstein 2 threat detection system across the federal space, and will continue to develop and begin deployment of Einstein 3, which will provide DHS with the ability to automatically detect and disrupt malicious cyber activity," Napolitano said in a speech at George Washington University on Thursday about securing the homeland.

Napolitano also touted DHS's "historic agreement" with the Department of Defense and its National Security Agency to detail the division of labor among our organizations (see DHS, DoD to Tackle Jointly Cyber Defense) as well as department's initiatives with the private sector to protect the nation's critical infrastructure, including new funding for port security and communication systems, as well as new standards for building and securing federal facilities.

"And we will work through our Science and Technology directorate, our dozen academic Centers of Excellence, and our many partners in the federal government, on technological advances," she said. "For example, to develop the secure and efficient airport checkpoints of tomorrow; design the materials that will make our infrastructure more resilient to an attack or natural disaster; and devise the screening and detection capabilities that will keep us ahead of threats from nuclear and radiological materials."
