Proposal Title: Cross-Domain Intrusion Detection using Privacy-Preserving Distributed Data Mining Technologies
Topic Number: H-SB04.2-001
Phase: Phase II
Topic Title: Cross-Domain Attack Correlation Technologies
Organization: AGNIK, LLC

Abstract: This proposal proposes development of PURSUIT, a cross-domain intrusion detection and prevention system that relies upon state-of-the-art privacy-preserving distributed data mining (PPDM) technology. PURSUIT has a distributed multi-agent architecture that supports formation of ad-hoc collaborative coalitions with due attention to security and privacy issues. PURSUIT's foundation is based on different PPDM techniques such as k-ring of privacy, secured multi-party computation, and randomized transformations that allow privacy-sensitive sharing of attack patterns, not the raw data. This project will be performed by Agnik, Tresys, and University of Minnesota Army High Performance Computing research Center. The Agnik team has a strong track record in distributed and privacy preserving data mining. Tresys is a security company with strong record in working with many governmental agencies dealing with national security. The UMN team has a strong record in building intrusion detection systems, including the MINDS system. Since the PURSUIT links up available intrusion detection and prevention systems, it has the commercial potential to be marketed to all organizations that currently use such systems. An early PURSUIT coalition has already been set up and it includes organizations such as University of Illinois, SRI International, Purdue University, Ohio State University, and Stevens Institute of Technology.
