IAI to develop a Network Obfuscation and Hardening Solution for Air Force Tactical IP Networks.

Wireless transmissions in secure airborne networks are susceptible to malicious attacks due to the sensitivity of the information transferred. In addition, the fixed nature of the attack surface provides adversaries with ample opportunity to analyze the network topology and behavior, allowing them to carefully plan attacks over time. To better protect IP-based airborne networks from cyber-threats, IAI will develop a Network ObfuscAtion and Hardening (NOAH) solution for tactical IP networks. The main objectives of NOAH are to significantly improve cyber agility and to harden airborne networks. Cyber hardening will reduce the extent of the exposed attack surface by eliminating vulnerabilities in networking protocols and services. NOAH’s cyber agility performs evasive defensive maneuvers that make it extremely difficult for the adversary to obtain a fix on the target. NOAH will also be used to dynamically reconfigure the posture of a system, during an attack, to enable the system to fight through the attack and continue operations uninterrupted. The product of this program will allow Air Force personnel to securely send information over tactical wireless networks without fear of malicious adversaries seeking sensitive information.
