Research Institution

To meet Department of Defense needs for a cyber deception capability, Grier Forensics proposes building a cyber deception system based on our AVENGE Avatar Engine.Using AVENGE, commanders will be able to provide false information that will confuse, delay, and impede attackers, with only minimal impact to legitimate users and friendly forces.AVENGE will be developed to provide multidimensional deception, misleading the adversary as to technology, operating system, applications, security level, number, location, and activity level.Our work will draw on existing capabilities of AVENGE, heretofore used for online anonymity, developing them to provide deception and active defense as a warfighter capability.Phase I will culminate in a controlled test, pitting an attacker's reconnaissance against a network with and without AVENGE, to provide a concrete evaluation and demonstration of AVENGE's effectiveness.
