Proposal Title: MACE - Malicious Application Code Elimination
Topic Number: H-SB04.2-002
Phase: Phase I
Topic Title: Real-Time Malicious Code Identification
Organization: Avenda Systems
Address: 14125 Berry Hill Lane

Abstract: The IDS/IDP market will gain considerable traction as more organizations protect each application server instead of relying on network security. Proactive security as embodied in intrusion prevention will take a larger share of the market than reactive security as represented by intrusion detection. Avenda Systems proposes a solution called MACE (Malicious Application Code Elimination). It is a proactive real-time malicious code and payload anomaly detection system that focuses on application protocols; this will be extremely useful in defending against network attacks. This is a feature gap in the current IDS/IDP products. Avenda Systems has the expertise to develop a practical and highly effective malicious code detection system. MACE can be used by all organizations that have a computer network. The software modules developed in this project can be integrated into existing IPS/IDS solutions. The technologies employed in this product are practical and innovative and have not been implemented in commercially available comparable products. Organizations, both military and civilian enterprises, can use this system to defend their networks against attacks. Prototype development in Phase-I will provide the knowledge and foundation for building a complete product in Phase-II, and a commercially viable product in Phase-III.
