Research Institution

Our Intelligent Cyber Adversaries Tool Suite (ICATS) system-of-systems builds upon existing work integrating cyber effects into Live, Virtual, Constructive, and Gaming (LVC&G) training systems and leverages other existing systems in the cyber domain. We leverage several in-work technologies to bring together complementary tools and achieve rapid progress. We research use of an existing framework to provide an advanced model of adversarial behavior based on cyber key terrain, and a system of automated adversary emulation to provide a basis for intelligent decision making. We examine leveraging a cyber domain emulation tool to represent the cyber key terrain. In addition, we leverage our SBIR-developed tool, which acts as a broker to integrate adversarial intelligence into the instrumentation of a force-on-force cyber environment to accurately reflect the cyber operational battlefield. Our initial target tool suite integrates easily with OneSAF, with subsequent system integration with JLCCTC and other LVC&G systems. ICATS consists of up to 5 interdependent systems, leverages existing work, brings together complementary technologies, and achieves rapid progress.
