Understanding and quantifying the impact of moving target defenses on computer networks

The goal of this research is to understand and quantify the potential and limitations of moving-target defense (MTD) systems to protect computer networks against the use of general vulnerability exploits to gain unauthorized access. To achieve this goal, we plan to create (1) a set of analytical models to quantify the effectiveness of MTD systems, and (2) a proof-of-concept MTD system that will automatically adapt multiple aspects of the network’s logical and physical configuration. Key research questions we plan to address include
