Project Objectives and Scope
The main project goal is to develop an infrastructure that will collect information using agents in a fully trusted manner. The software agents will collect information from servers and end-points. The nature of the collected information will be determined with the help of design partners of STEE-Infosec.
The main research challenge is how to isolate the monitoring infrastructure from the potentially compromised system that is being monitored. The software agent will have to run in a system that may be compromised.
For implementing the agent we intend to use various virtualisation and trusted computing techniques that will help us to protect the agent from being compromised. We intend to activate the agents such that each agent will crosscheck the wellbeing of other agents running in other computers.
