A Moving Target Defense Framework for Distributed Systems

September 27, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Co-sponsored by: SP01 and School of Computer Sciences and Engineering, FDU

The traditional defensive security solutions employ techniques such as parameter-based defenses, data encryption, attribute-based access control, redundancy and replications, to safeguard systems. With the rise of sophisticated cyber-attacks from intelligent adversaries in recent years, given sufficient time and resources, all of these methods can be defeated. Moving Target Defense (MTD) is a promising new defensive security solution that aims to change the adversary’s gain-loss balance by continuously shifting the system’s attack surface. In this talk, I will discuss the design, implementation and experiments of an MTD framework for distributed systems on virtualized cloud platforms (i.e., Openstack).

Speaker(s): Dr. Wenliang Chen,


Dr. Noor O. Ahmed is a computer Scientist at the Air Force Research Laboratory in Rome NY since 2003. He holds a BS from Utica College (2002), MS from Syracuse University (2006), and PhD from Purdue University (2016), all in Computer Science. His research areas include resiliency and reliability in distributed systems with special emphasis on Moving Target Defense, publish/subscribe, semantic computing, security in Service Oriented Architecture and cloud computing.
