OSD/Army awards IAI a new contract to develop a comprehensive and dynamic framework for Realtime Network Traffic Resiliency

Firewalls and intrusion detection systems (IDSs) are helpful against sophisticated attacks over the Internet, but they are a static defense mechanism, requiring human intervention and providing no historical analysis. A real time network traffic monitoring, detection and filtering system that can adaptively, dynamically and intelligently redirect malicious traffic to safe locations for further analysis will be useful. To address this, IAI has been awarded a new contract entitled “RADAR: A Comprehensive and Dynamic Framework towards Realtime Network Traffic Resiliency.” The proposed approach for Realtime, Adaptive and Dynamic trAffic Resiliency, called RADAR, uses existing algorithms and technologies like commercial traffic monitoring and filtering tools, threat detection algorithms, and commercial router configurations to develop a complete traffic resilience enabling system. It dynamically monitors, detects and intelligently redirects suspicious traffic to isolated locations in the network in a real time manner. The complete RADAR system includes RADAR-enabled routers with network monitoring and traffic filtering/diversion capabilities, threat handler units with thread detection, rule set generation and BGP FLOWSPEC rule configuration components and threat analyzers for advance threat analysis, packet manipulation and covert response. The proposed framework will establish modular and flexible architecture to redirect and manipulate suspicious traffic throughout the network. RADAR’s feasibility will be studied on IAI’s experimental network tested, over a network of hybrid sets of routers. Software routers, routers that support open source firmware, such as OpenWrt or DD-WRT, and other widely used commercial routers such as CISCO, Juniper and Linksys will be integrated into the implementation. RADAR would be beneficial to the military as well as any commercial ISP or security service provider responsible for computer network defense operations.
