Cisco canceling internal security research group?

Cisco has closed an internal security research group that's part of the company's Critical Infrastructure Assurance Group (CIAG), according to a report by Dark Reading.

Dark Reading quotes a Cisco spokesman as saying that the CIAG still exists but the article goes on to say that the group's research projects were on hold, as of Tuesday. Some of the research include SCADA security research, a honeynet for SCADA systems, Internet DNS scanning, study of "collateral damage" on network devices from malware attacks, a VoIP threat study, and the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS), reports Dark Reading.
