Abstract
Advances in Internet services and mobile wireless services will lead to the development of cyberspace services that are pervasive and ubiquitous and touch all aspects of our life. However, along with these advances, we are experiencing grand challenges to secure and protect our cyberspace resources and services so they can effectively tolerate epidemic-style cyber-attacks, deliver applications that can survive failures and attacks; and manage autonomically its cyberspace resources and applications. Due to this enormous increase in complexity, dynamism, and heterogeneity, it is becoming critically important to develop the capability to characterize the current state of software systems in a way that can be easily understood by novice users and administrators and provide them with automated/semi-automated recovery actions to stop and/or mitigate the impact of cyber-attacks. In this Phase II SBIR, AVIRTEK will build three ASPS prototypes; test their capabilities in capturing the state of the applications, representing the current states, visualizing the states, and proactively protecting the managed applications and services. AVIRTEK will tailor and deploy the ASPS prototypes in diverse environments/markets and it will perform various types of testing and evaluation. The three prototypes will target the following three environments: industrial control systems, wireless ad-hoc networks, and enterprise environments.
