Anti-Cyber Attack Alert System “DAEDALUS” Looks Very “Ghost In The Shell”-ish

Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) announced “DAEDALUS” (Direct Alert Environment for Darknet And Livenet Unified Security) system on June 6.

The system has nationwide distributed surveillance network to watch so-called darknet, a part of the Internet which IP address are not supposed to be used. There are non-ignorable amount of digital packets sent to and originated from the darknet ranges, and many of them seem to be related with invalid activities, such like computer virus transmission.

The red kanji character is “Kei”, means alert, patrol, etc.

The screenshots of the DAEDALUS monitoring system remind a lot of Japanese a system appeared in the popular cyber animation series “Ghost in the Shell”. Many people say that the creator of this system got influenced by the animation film.
