Abstract
One of the most significant weaknesses that faces modern software protection solutions is the reliance on static policies and rule sets that are established based on "known" attack methods at the time of development. In reality, attacks are not static; they adapt over time, and evolve to defeat protections as they are made public. Pikewerks proposes to address both of these weaknesses by developing a system, referred to as Deception Studio that characterizes and appropriately reacts to attackers in real-time. As has been successfully implemented in traditional warfare, it will strive to shape the attacker's perception, and create an illusion capable of manipulating their planning process. This concept is based on the combat operations process defined by John Boyd referred to as Observe, Orient, Decide, and Act (OODA). Deception Studio will characterize the attack, and tailor defenses based on what is observed.
