Opportunity Description

Title of Research Opportunity: Development of moving target defense (MTD) and deception defense techniques This project aims to (1) develop MTD and deception defense techniques based on game theoretic modeling in order to reflect the realistic interactions of attackers and defenders; and (2) validate the effectiveness of the developed MTD and deception defense techniques. Approach: This task will be executed using the following approaches: • Game theoretic modeling to describe the interactions between attackers and defenders; • Consideration of advanced persistent threat (APT) based on cyber kill chain models; • Design and analysis of the effectiveness of deception mechanisms; and • Development of machine and cognitive learning based MTD techniques Experimentation Plan. This task will validate the developed schemes by: • Conducting experiments based on simulation/emulation testbeds; and • Validating the effectiveness of the developed MTD and deception techniques based on dynamic security metrics Keywords: moving target defense, deception game, game theory, network security Click here for more information
