Provides greater insights into network activity (without eating up precious time or budgets)
Miridor (meer·id·or) is an intrusion detection system that gives Cybera’s connected members a simple, but detailed, overview of potential indicators of compromise on their network, to improve their overall security posture.
How does it work?
- Miridor “mirrors” the network traffic of participating members at Cybera’s core router locations.
- The mirrored traffic is analyzed for known suspicious or malicious activity.
- The identified suspicious activity is catalogued in a customized, web-based database that can be reviewed by the member.
- No configuration or setup is required.
Benefits of Miridor for Cybera members
- Gain insight into your traffic without needing to deploy extra equipment.
- Receive an easy-to-consume summary of the malicious activity analysis.
- Data is freely exportable for further investigations or reporting.
Examples of “suspicious” activity Miridor looks for:
- Malicious or malformed traffic.
- Traffic attempting to exploit vulnerabilities.
- Traffic from known botnets and other threat sources.

Miridor and the national Cybersecurity Initiatives Program
Miridor was created to serve member organizations that are not eligible for the CANARIE-funded Cybersecurity Initiatives Program (CIP). The CIP, which includes an Intrusion Detection System, is geared towards post-secondary institutions connected to the National Research & Education Network.
Smaller post-secondary institutions (that are eligible for CIP) may still choose to implement both services.
How Miridor compares to the CIP intrusion detection system:
|Cybera Miridor||CANARIE-funded CIP|
|Only available to post-secondary institutions connected to the R&E Network|
|Cloud-based service (no user hardware)|
|No installation, configuration, or maintenance|
|Monitors ONLY Cybera network traffic|
|Accessible via web portal|
|Monitors both Cybera network and non-Cybera network traffic|
|Requires installation, configuration and maintenance|
How To Join
- This service is available to Cybera members in Alberta's public sector who are connected to Cybera’s network (check if your organization is a Cybera member).
- It is geared towards smaller institutions (i.e. bandwidth traffic under 1.3 Gbps).
