Proactive Network-Based Security
Mimir Networks is investigating methods in Software Defined Networking (SDN) to advance the state of the art for proactive network based security. Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) have evolved past the point of traditional mitigation and need to be pushed deeper into the network layers to allow for scalability to keep pace with the rapid development of attack vectors.
We believe that benefits of adapting best practices around flow telemetry creation and attack mitigation into the SDN model will provide industry the ability to accelerate the response to ever evolving attacks techniques.
The Government of Canada contributes to the research at Mimir.
