Abstract
Rather than continuing to approach cyber security problems in a reactive fashion, ASD proposes to move to a proactive posture; anticipating and eliminating vulnerabilities while also being prepared to effectively and rapidly defend against attacks. Our approach collects data about the attacker as well as the attack, which it processes in real time. The data (observations) is then used by our protection technology to adapt to an on-going attack, while protecting and ensuring the operational integrity of the software under its protection. Our proposed approach contains four elements: A secure coprocessor base platform that will be extended and enhanced An adaptation of the OODA loop through a countermeasures autonomous agent An innovative, optically-based and powered sensor subsystem A multi-agent computer defense system that is based upon immunological principles
