Abstract:

The relatively static configurations of networks and their hosts allow attackers to gather intelligence, perform planning, and execute attacks at will. We propose a scalable, dynamic, adaptive system for host immunity that combines virtualization, emulation, and mutable network configurations. This system is deployed on a single host, and provides host protection through hiding the real system among a large number of decoys with dynamic virtualized network topology. It will make the network scanner and intruder spend more time and effort on attacking the worthless targets decoys.
