   Objective:   Develop a system to efficiently correlate information from
   multiple intrusion detection systems (IDSes) about “stealthy” sources and
   targets of attacks in a distributed fashion across multiple environments.

   Objective:  Develop technologies to detect anomalous network payloads
   destined for any service or port in a target machine in order to prevent the
   spread of destructive code through networks and applications. These
   technologies should focus on detecting “zero day attacks”, the first
   appearance of malicious code for which no known defense has been
                                                                    8 November 2005   21
SBIR FY05.2 Submission
Hardware-assisted          System Security Monitoring
OBJECTIVE: This topic seeks technologies that provide a hardware-assist for the
monitoring of system security. It is expected that the resulting solutions would be
some type of inexpensive coprocessor board that would work with existing hardware
and software, resulting in a system with much higher assurance than currently
available. By putting the monitoring capability in hardware it is much more difficult for
an attacker to disable this part of the system because the board is isolated from potential
remote attackers and would require physical access to compromise the hardware-assist
board, thus, providing the owner/user technology that can monitor the security health of
the system in near real-time. This will ensure that even when the machine is on, but the
user is not using the machine, the system will be monitored and can even be "shut
down" so unknown communications is not sent while the user's away. The hardware-
assist system should have the capability to collect and store information for
forensic purposes and the system should also have capability to report security
related events to a central monitoring station.

   “Justification and Requirements for a National DDOS
    Defense Technology Evaluation Facility”, July 2002
   We still lack large-scale deployment of security technology
    sufficient to protect our vital infrastructures
       Recent investment in research on cyber security technologies by
        government agencies (NSF, DARPA, armed services) and industry.
   One important reason is the lack of an experimental infrastructure
    and rigorous scientific methodologies for developing and testing
    next-generation defensive cyber security technology
   The goal is to create, operate, and support a researcher-and-
    vendor-neutral experimental infrastructure that is open to a wide
    community of users and produce scientifically rigorous testing
    frameworks and methodologies to support the development and
    demonstration of next-generation cyber defense technologies

     “To advance the state of the research and commercial
     development (of network security „products‟) we need to
     produce datasets for information security testing and
     evaluation of maturing networking technologies.”
    Rationale / Background / Historical:
        Researchers with insufficient access to data unable to adequately test
         their research prototypes
        Government technology decision-makers with no data to evaluate
         competing “products”

      End Goal: Improve the quality of defensive
             cyber security technologies

Internet Infrastructure Security
   The National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace
    (2003) recognized the DNS as a critical weakness
       NSSC called for the Department of Homeland Security
        to coordinate public-private partnerships to encourage
        the adoption of improved security protocols, such as
       The security and continued functioning of the
        Internet will be greatly influenced by the success or
        failure of implementing more secure and more
        robust BGP and DNS. The Nation has a vital interest in
        ensuring that this work proceeds. The government
        should play a role when private efforts break down
        due to a need for coordination or a lack of proper

                                                                 8 November 2005   30
Domain Name System Security
(DNSSEC) Program
   DNSSEC Program Objective
    “Carry forward to completion the recommendation from the
    National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace by engaging industry,
    government, and academia to enable all DNS-related traffic on
    the Internet to be DNSSEC compliant”
   Rationale / Background / Historical:
        DNS is a critical component of the Internet infrastructure and was not
         designed for security
        DNS vulnerabilities have been identified for over a decade and we are
         addressing these vulnerabilities

    End Goal: Greatly increase the security of the
     Internet (as critical infrastructure) by securing
     the DNS through the use of crypto signatures
                                                                      8 November 2005   31
    The Domain Name System
   DNS database maps:                                       Root
       Name to IP address =

       And many other mappings                edu           mil               ru
        (mail servers, IPv6, reverse…)

   Data organized as tree               isi         darpa         usmc         mil
       Each zone is authoritative
        for its own data
                                         nge                        alpha
       Minimal coordination between
        zone operators
                                                                      8 November 2005   32
DNS Attacks
   Attacks via and against the DNS infrastructure are
                becoming costly and difficult to remedy
     Attacks are
     Consumer confidence in Internet accuracy is decreasing
   Financial/large enterprises are seeing a significant
    increase in online attacks for fraudulent purposes
     Hijacking     (virtual theft of domain names)
                         fraudulent emails and web sites)
     Phishing (look-alike
     Pharming (phishing combined with DNS attacks)

   Other attacks include DNS name mismatches or
    browser tricks aimed at careless users
                                                              8 November 2005   33
DNSSEC – What it provides
   Provides an approach so DNS users can:
       Validate that data they receive came from the correct originator, i.e.,
        Source Authenticity
       Validate that data they receive is the data the originator put into the
        DNS, i.e., Data Integrity
   Approach integrates with existing server infrastructure and
    user clients
   DNSSEC awareness by application
       Results of DNSSEC validation functions provided to applications
       Applications can take different actions based on DNSSEC validation
        results, e.g. won‟t connect to without good
        validation but will connect to without it.
   Examples:
       Web browsers
       Email servers and clients

                                                                        8 November 2005   34
DNSSEC Initiative Activities
   Roadmap published in February 2005
   Multiple workshops held world-wide
   DNSSEC testbed developed by
   Involvement with numerous deployment pilots
   Working with Civilian government (.gov) to develop policy
    and technical guidance for secure DNS operations and
    beginning deployment activities at all levels.
   Working with the operators of the “.us” and “.mil” zones
    towards DNSSEC deployment and compliance

Secure Protocols for the Routing
Infrastructure (SPRI)
   BGP is the routing protocol that connects ISPs and subscriber
    networks together to form the Internet
   BGP does not forward subscriber traffic, but it determines the
    paths subscriber traffic follows
   The BGP architecture makes it highly vulnerable to human
    errors and malicious attacks against
       Links between routers
       The routers themselves
       Management stations that control routers
   Work with industry to develop solutions for our current
    routing security problems and future technologies

I3P Cyber Economics Project
   Two project goals:
       How to quantify the cost of cyber security and the effects of cyber
       How to measure the effectiveness of current security tools and policies?
   Three intertwined threads
       National perspective:
            Views the information infrastructure as an element of national security,
             where cyber security incidents can disrupt, impair or destroy critical
             economic capabilities.
       Enterprise or corporate perspective:
            Considers the effects of degraded or destroyed infrastructure on the degree
             to which an enterprise can maintain its bottom line by developing and
             delivering products and services.
       Technological perspective:
            Addresses those technologies that protect the infrastructure, by deterring
             particular threats, preventing certain classes of attacks, or mitigating the
             consequences of attack.

        would consider their objective met if the DETER test bed were used in
        the planning of the exercise (to lend realism to scenario elements) and
        if one or more session can be arranged during the exercise, where the
        players could see the test bed in action being used to test exercise
        relevant problems or decisions. The session(s) should show the value
        of the tool and add defensive technology to the exercise.

DHS Mentor/Protégé Program
   Objective
        Provide start-up emerging security companies with mentor support in
        sales & marketing to government
   Existing Mentor/Protégé programs in government are
    procurement oriented. New S&T Mentor/Protégé program will
    focus on rapidly transitioning cyber security technologies into
    government through existing relationships.
       Mentors will be large, established government contractors with cyber
        security experience
       Protégés will provide innovative cyber security technology. There are
        no set-aside requirements (e.g. disadvantaged, HubZone business)
   Selection Process
       The Cyber Security R&D Center will solicit government/industry
        technology requirements to identify gaps in the US cyber infrastructure.
       These requirements will guide selection of mentors. Protégés, with
        technology to meet infrastructure gaps, will be proposed to the mentors
        by the Center.
                                                                      8 November 2005   58
