    • Stream Splitting Moving Target Defense (ANL-IN-16-019)

    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. 


    Systems and methods for utilizing stream splitting Moving Target Defense (MTD) to provide enhanced computer system communication system security by splitting a data stream in to a plurality of paths is described. In some implementations, Stream splitting MTD, involves splitting a single data stream (e.g., TCP stream) into a plurality of discrete units, then sending and receiving those discrete units from and to different (ideally geographically disparate) receiving servers, with the stream being reassembled on the receiving end. The plurality of discrete units of data include resequencing data. The size of each discrete unit may vary depending on the specific implementation, even down to small unit sizes (e.g., a single packet)
