Cyber maneuver program to help Army protect networks

The Army has awarded a $3.1 million contract to Raytheon to develop technology that would allow cyber personnel to maintain networks and related assets in a way that would thwart potential attackers in high-threat environments, the company said in a July 16 news release.

The company's program, known as Morphing Network Assets to Restrict Adversarial Reconnaissance, will enable cyber warriors to modify aspects and configurations of networks, hosts and applications in a way that is undetectable and unpredictable by an adversary but still manageable for network administrators, the news release.

The project will be overseen by the Space and Terrestrial Communications Directorate within the Army's Communications, Electronics, Research, Development and Engineering Center, the announcement said.
