Scalable Network Technologies to Advance Cyber Attack Testing for Military Networks
- StealthNet synthetically recreates the net-centric test battlespace to provide real-time, hardware-in-the-loop testing of cyber threats
SNT will design, prototype and demonstrate StealthNet's capability to stimulate Blue Force tactical and Global Information Grid (GIG)-based communication networks with a diverse set of cyber threats in a Live, Virtual and Constructive (LVC) environment. In addition, the company will evaluate the effectiveness of the threats in disrupting Blue Force communications via key performance indicators, i.e. bandwidth, reliability, delay and quality of service metrics. StealthNet will leverage existing TRL-3 and TRL-4 research on information operations into a comprehensive and modular TRL-6 cyber warfare simulation capability that can be incorporated into the net-centric battlespace testing environment.

"Current simulations supporting the net-centric test battlespace do not accurately represent the impact of cyber threats and information operations," said Dr. Rajive Bagrodia, CEO of SNT. "StealthNet will help mitigate the risks that deployed net-centric systems will fail in unpredictable ways. It will also help develop and test cyber defense strategies that will be effective in protecting Blue Force communications. The fundamental Science & Technology that will be advanced with this project addresses a vulnerability gap of high importance for the test & training communities."
Given the importance of net-centricity as the evolving doctrine for the next generation of US DOD, Department of Homeland Security, US Cyber Command and intelligence agency programs, new modeling, planning & management, and test & evaluation tools are required to ensure network operability and accuracy. SNT's emulation technology provides a less costly and substantially more effective environment for analysis and evaluation of net-centric protocols, applications, devices, services, and training systems.
