Raytheon Develops MORPHINATOR Network Technology


The U.S. Army's Communications, Electronics, Research, Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC) has awarded a $3.1 million contract to Raytheon to develop technology for Morphing Network Assets to Restrict Adversarial Reconnaissance (MORPHINATOR). The aim is to dynamically modifying aspects and configurations of networks, hosts and applications in a manner that is undetectable and unpredictable by an adversary but still manageable for network administrators. MORPHINATOR is designed to be used in conjunction with other existing security devices to provide an active defense approach to information assurance.


Raytheon said the use cyber maneuvering techniques could thwart potential attackers in high-threat environments.


"The intent of cyber maneuver is to place computer network defense technology into a proactive state, thereby shifting the advantage away from the attacker," said Jack Donnelly, director of Trusted Network Systems for Raytheon's Network Centric Systems business. "By constantly changing the characteristics of the networks it resides on, MOPRHINATOR provides a more robust and trusted networking solution."
