Multiple Operating System Rotation Environment Moving Target Defense (ANL-IN-14-020) and Stream Splitting Moving Target Defense (ANL-IN-16-019)

Technology Available for Licensing: Multiple Operating System Rotation Environment Moving Target Defense

  • Systems and methods for providing a multiple operating system rotation environment (“MORE”) moving target defense (“MTD”) computing system are described.
  • The MORE-MTD system provides enhanced computer system security through a rotation of multiple operating systems. The MORE-MTD system increases attacker uncertainty, increases the cost of attacking the system, reduces the likelihood of an attacker locating a vulnerability, and reduces the exposure time of any located vulnerability.
  • The MORE-MTD environment is effectuated by rotation of the operating systems at a given interval. The rotating operating systems create a consistently changing attack surface for remote attackers.

Technology Available for Licensing: Stream Splitting Moving Target Defense

  • This invention relates generally to systems that thwart cyber-attacks and data theft by employing moving target defense (MTD).
  • In particular, the invention relates to systems that utilize a stream splitting environment MTD to counter cyber-attack attempts and network sniffing, data acquisition attempts.
