Cyber Command & Control Systems

Contemporary command & control systems for managing distributed computing enterprises are an amplifier for both attackers and defenders. These centralized management & access control systems provide soft cyber targets which enable attackers to easily gain control of entire distributed systems and enterprises.

EpiCom is our cyber command & control system which separates authenticity of control orders from online distribution and employs peer-to-peer distribution networks to improve scalability and performance.

We analyze botnet-style command and control networks to understand how to disrupt adversary command and control and how to build networks that are resilient to attack.

We also analyze distributed systems to predict the resilience of systems to the spread of intrusions.

The next generation of EpiCom will push centralized signature and anomaly detection out to every device so that mobile devices become a distributed sensor network with distributed decision making.
