Our mission is to conduct traffic generation to simulate realistic computer environments with lots of users; Red Team activity to stress-test computer security research projects; and testbed control, instrumentation, data harvesting and data analysis. When a test requires something novel, we invent it.
High volume, diversity of network traffic types, and autonomous control of desktop applications for maximum realism
True zero-day vulnerabilities injected into existing software, and exploits expressing specific properties
Testbed control: range preparation and administration, automated test control and data collection, and data analysis
We create tools as required for your test's unique needs, including support for custom applications, network traffic, and attacks
Skaion has made major contributions to several noteworthy efforts:
Skaion has made major contributions to several noteworthy efforts: Created true zero-day attacks by injecting custom vulnerabilities into existing software and then exploiting them
Phase I & Phase II: Provided all of the host activity and network traffic generation for three major NCR contractors
Phase IIB tests: Simulated tens of thousands of peer-to-peer clients using only 28 hosts
Generated realistic, non-repetitive network traffic to completely saturate aggregate 100Gb/s channels
Created and instrumented a testbed, and used it to create data for other researchers by generating host, network, and attack activity on it
On an embedded device, we inserted malware that defeats attempts to find anything wrong with the device.
Enacted insider threat behavior in a controlled testbed, captured that data, and then transformed the data to seamlessly blend it into a population of 5000+ normal users
Awarded for performance on Dynamic Quarantine of Worms, where, in addition to traffic generation, data gathering and data analysis contributions, we developed 10 novel worms in under a year for testing the DARPA performer's solution
Recognized as prime contractor for APL and its subcontractors. In announcing the award, IARPA Director Dr. Lisa Porter cited the team’s "quick reaction on evolving instrumentation and infrastructure requirements," which were key Skaion contributions.
