    Have you heard that the University of Texas at San Antonio has launched an open source user computer environment for Amazon Cloud called Galahad?

    Galahad, which is named after the legendary Arthurian knight who secured the Holy Grail, is intended to protect users of desktop applications running on Amazon Web Services. UTSA is also working to expand its capabilities to support OpenStack software. The software was originally created by Star Lab Corp. for the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity, or IARPA, which is a division of the Office of National Intelligence.

    With the use of role-based isolation and real-time sensors, Galahad integrates machine learning to develop unique user profiles that spot malicious activity or other anomalies like malware.
