Abstract:

The IP Hopper is a moving target defense system that will use available network data and hopping algorithms to allow for constant IP address changing of both source and destination IP addresses. The use of "hopping" IP addresses will severely diminish an attacker's ability to attack any one target within a network. Utilizing IPv6 the IP Hopper will allow up to 340 undecillion (3.4 x 10 to the 38) different IP addresses to be randomly used to thwart any attackers attempt on a machine within the network. Working off of the military's SINCGARS radio concept, the IP Hopper will do for data packets what the SINCGARS do for voice communications. Working with other IP Hoppers data communications both internal and external to the network can benefit from this constantly moving network defense appliance.
