Abstract
Supply chain threats have invalidated the assumption that the adversary has no reasonable avenue of attack even if the software protections are structured properly and augmented with secure hardware. In today"s cyber-attack environment, one must assume that a subset of systems are or will be eventually compromised. Luna proposes a fault tolerance, federated cloud computing architecture supporting design separation for high reliability and information assurance. By leveraging a hybrid fault model with multiple, parallel execution paths and resultant execution trace comparison, Luna has created an architecture that identifies suspect nodes and assures trusted execution. Further, the model architecture can be scaled through proactive thread diversity for additional assurance during threat escalation. The solution provides dynamic protection through distributing critical information across federated cloud resources that adopt a metamorphic topology, redundant execution, and the ability to break command and control of malicious agents.
