PoC Products

As a result of our projects with a high Technology Readiness Level (TRL), we build Proofs of Concept (PoC). We describe some of the ones that we have created here.

SELFNET Self-Protection Botnet Components: Proactive Detection and Mitigation of Cyber-Attacks Conducted by Potential Botnets

The software implemented as a proof-of-concept provides the code artifacts associated to the Self-Protection Use Case of the EU H2020 SELFNET project, including the main parts for starting-up a Zeus-based botnet as well as an actuator capable of mitigating its effects to supply the SELFNET framework with self-protection capabilities against distributed potential cyber-attacks.

To this end, the software provides the code to install the Zeus-based Command & Control (C&C) Server and a Java application that can be executed to recruit real or fake zombies in the botnet.

Release Date: September 2018

Mitigation of Botnets in Federated SDN/NFV Infrastructures for 5G

BotsOnFIRE is an experiment implemented as a proof-of-concept within the EU H2020 SoftFIRE project. Its main objective is to detect and mitigate botnet activities in the SoftFIRE federated testbed for 5G within FIRE+, through a tight combination of SDN and NFV technologies. Bots’ mobility is also considered to trigger the reconfiguration of the security SDN/NFV applications, when needed, in order to update the security capabilities of the SoftFIRE infrastructure.

Release Date: February 2018
