MITRA operates research and development centers and the nonprofit actively looks for solutions to cybersecurity threats within the U.S. government. In a blog post, Microsoft says its Counterfit AI security tool will now become a part of Mitre's new Arsenal tool.
Arsenal is a service that “implements the tactics and techniques defined in the Mitre Atlas framework and has been built off of Microsoft's Counterfit as an automated adversarial attack library,” Mitre explains.
Counterfit was launched in 2021 as an AI security solution. It is an open source solution that Microsoft will use to automate security tests across AI systems. Organizations can leverage the tool to gain security insights and protections across artificial intelligence services.
“This new tool integration brings together Microsoft Counterfit, Mitre Caldera and Mitre Atlas to help security practitioners better understand threats to ML systems,” Microsoft Threat Intelligence wrote in a blog post. “This will enable security teams to proactively look for weaknesses in AI and machine learning models and fix them before an attacker can take advantage.”
Alongside Arsenal, Counterfit will also be available in Mitre's Caldera service, which automates red team attacks by emulating the profiles of attacks.
Essentially, Mitre and Microsoft's service can emulate an attack using AI and then work to find solutions to prevent it.
Tip of the day: Windows now has a package manager similar to Linux called “Winget”. In our tutorial, we show you how to install and use this new tool that allows the quick installation of apps via PowerShell or a GUI.
