Perspecta Labs is developing new solutions to defend and protect networks from sophisticated distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. DDoS attacks leverage widely deployed internet of things (IoT) devices to launch a barrage of strikes. These strikes can significantly disrupt public, private and critical infrastructure networks. Under contract from the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Perspecta Labs’ researchers are creating fundamentally new paradigms to detect and mitigate these large-scale cyber threats.
Perspecta Labs’ comprehensive solution relies on innovative research in distributed communications and network maneuvering. Our novel techniques prevent attackers from identifying high-value targets while also denying them the critical feedback they need to determine whether their attack is successful. Our advanced analytics enable rapid attack identification and automated response across a broad attack surface. The innovative research in this and other cyber research programs helps network operators protect critical services, defeat and confuse adversaries and successfully defend their networks and data.
