Abstract

Knowledge Based Systems, Inc. (KBSI) proposes to develop Cyber Network Attack and Intrusion Detection and Recovery Environment (CYANIDE), a customizable environment for developing, testing and deploying sensing and monitoring technology for centralized and distributed cyber attacks on a wide range of information and sensor networks. CYANIDE is an intrusion detection and recovery experimentation framework that emulates behaviors of host cyber networks as well as attack processes and intrusion detection techniques. It is intended for new cyber network infrastructure such as semantic web enablement based sensor webs, grid and cloud networks, mobile ad hoc networks and wireless sensor networks. Because classical signature-based and anomaly detection based techniques are ineffective in such networks, KBSI will investigate new graph-based intrusion detection techniques on the CYANIDE platform.
