Cyber Security Audit Technology

The ministry of electronics and information technology (MeitY) via its computer emergency response team (CERT-in) launched desktop tools and mobile applications for citizens to tackle cyber security.The new tools, which are developed by the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) includes white-listing software AppSamvid, USB Pratirodh tool to control unauthorised usage of portable USB storage devices, and mobile device security app M-Kavach.
Besides this, the government has also launched the Cyber Swachhta Kendra - Botnet Cleaning and Malware Analysis Centre for analysis of malware and botnets that affect networks and systems - which is operated by CERT-In. Whenever an infection is detected, the central government will send alerts on the infected IP addresses to the Internet Service Providers, who in turn will inform the end-user about the malware and botnet infections on their system.
