Sandia Labs’ MegaDroid Plays Security War Games

Sandia National Laboratories announced on Tuesday that it has set up a network of 300,000 Android virtual handheld computing devices to study large networks of smartphones. The project, called “MegaDroid,” is expected to result in a software tool that will let other cyber-researchers model similar environments and study the behavior of smartphone networks. The tool will ultimately let the computing industry better protect hand-held devices from malicious intent, Sandia stated.
