KESS2 Scholarships: Deception Approaches for CNI (MbyRes)

Project Description

Masters by Research

This is a funded MbyRes, including a generous stipend and tuition fees, with well-resourced circumstances for a successful scholarship.

Here is an exciting opportunity to study a system and its associated technology which could lead to entirely new approaches in Command and Control Systems. The selected candidate will apply their skills and ambition to construction of an advanced prototype system that can perform deception Approaches for CNI. This project will allow the student to develop transferable knowledge and skills in this most exciting and active field of networking and command and control research.

Programme of Research:

A system is typically dynamic and so can be manipulated in a variety of ways. Security can be thought of as a series of constraints attempting to restrict that manipulation. An attacker disrupts the system and manipulates the system in an undesirable manner. Due to the fact that an attacker can be more adaptive than the defender, the attacker will ultimately disrupt the system faster than a defender can constrain it. Deception technologies attempt to change this dynamic by disrupting the signals the attacker receives frustrating their ability to manipulate the system due to the false information being fed back to them. The challenge with this approach within CNI is to ensure that the process under control receives reliable signals whilst the attacker receives disruptive false signals. This work would identify means, by which to achieve this and what deceptive technology approaches would work within a complex CNI environment.
The project seeks to develop and validate a Deception Model for Industrial Process Control Systems in CNI. In particular, the aims of this project are as follows:
• To develop a Deception Approaches for CNI
• To validate that model through a series of case studies relating to Industrial Process Control Systems in CNI.
• Analyse and fuse multiple sources of data to develop deception process:
o To engage in enthrallment and ensnarement of an adversary.
