Abstract

Moving Target Defense (MTD) has emerged as a good solution to deal with dynamic attack surface. The goal is to make it difficult for an attacker to exploit network resources. But it is challenging to provide zero downtime guarantees when performing network rearrangement or when a physical host acts as a single point of failure for virtual servers. In this paper, we introduce Software Defined Networking (SDN) based continuous time modeling techniques to perform virtual machine migration and MTD techniques while maintaining high service availability and system security. This solution will not only increase attackers uncertainty but will also provide low downtime and high availability guarantee for the network.
