Army Develops Adaptation Strategies for Net Resilience

The U.S. Army has partnered with Virginia Tech to develop network adaptation strategies to maintain services while under cyberattacks and with limited resources. A study by the Army revealed that network resilience alone is not effective in measuring its ability to accomplish missions. Instead of trying to withstand an attack, the researchers explored what could be done if an attack is successful, the Army said. Army researcher Terry Moore said they mathematically proved that network connectivity is not a sufficient measure and focused on continuing communications despite interruptions.¬†Moore’s study measured network adaptability instead of fault tolerance, which was typically the focus of past studies. The research involved a computational simulation of a scenario with weak and limited defensive resources such as a phone or a robot, Moore said.
