Reconfigurable Moving Target Defense System using Virtualization

Moving Target Defense (MTD) allows for a system to change its attack surface in either a proactive or reactive way. By changing the attack surface, we can dramatically increase the amount of time and resources spent by the attacker, and in some cases can even thwart the attack. In our MTD implementation, we propose a reconfigurable system which utilizes virtualization, standard MTD techniques, and a human-agent operated Command and Control Center. The goal of this research is to teach the operating system to defend itself from attacks, and in order to accomplish this we use virtualization to abstract the system as a whole from the user.
