C.U.P.I.D. and Routers

Many Cisco routers today use or can use a UEFI BIOS as well, which means C.U.P.I.D. could be adapted to future router designs. Routers would need to have a few minor modifications made to employ the full C.U.P.I.D. abilities, or, Cisco may adopt a scaled down approach. Working with the creator would ensure full transference of abilities for Cisco to determine how best to use. Applying C.U.P.I.D. to a Gen1 BIOS is entirely possible though would require far more coding (akin to what I proposed in the first design in 2001).

Considering the issues Cisco has had with chip-based backdoors, the C.U.P.I.D. design is ideal to both detect and prevent any infections, again with proper software to identify undesired parameters.

Either way, Cisco could add both new features and more importantly - value - by incorporating the core C.U.P.I.D. design in to their own products. I have had thoughts of how to use C.U.P.I.D. in routers to backtrack during DDOS attacks and through C.U.P.I.D.-enabled software, shut down only the attacking devices. Yet another way to utilize C.U.P.I.D. for the overall stability of the internet.

The only issue I can foresee is additional computing power would be necessary, however new products equals more jobs and sales. As long as there is a realized benefit of true value to all then it will be successful.
