SARNET: Secure Autonomous Response Networks

Time 10/16/17 01:30PM-02:20PM

Room Seacliff A

Session Abstract

SARNET, Secure Autonomous Response NETworks, is a project funded by the Dutch Research Foundation. The University of Amsterdam, TNO, KLM, and Ciena conduct research on automated methods against attacks on computer network infrastructures. By using the latest techniques in Software Defined Networking and Network Function Virtualization, a SARNET can use advanced methods to defend against cyber-attacks and return the network to its normal state. The research goal of SARNET is to obtain the knowledge to create ICT systems that:

1) Model the system’s state based on the emerging behavior of its components;
2) Discover by observations and reasoning if and how an attack is developing and calculate the associated risks;
3) Have the knowledge to calculate the effect of countermeasures on states and their risks;
4) Choose and execute the most effective countermeasure.

Similar to last years demonstration [1,2], we will show an interactive touch table based demonstration that controls a Software Defined Network running on (Exo)GENI infrastructure. This year the visitor will select the attack origin and the type of attack, the system will respond and defend against this attack autonomously. The response, includes security VNFs that are deployed when necessary, the underlying Software Defined
Network will route the attack traffic to the VNF for analysis or mitigation.
