  • Designing intelligent network defenses which dynamically detect and defendor quarantine vulnerable components using technologies such as software defined networking or virtualization
  • Proactively securing vulnerable components with virtual patching or binary rewriting
  • Increasing the complexity and cost of an attacker exploiting a vulnerable component with advancements in Moving Target Defenses (MTD)
  • Devising novel design, development, and deployment methodologies for compartmentalizing vulnerability impact through application sandboxing, containerization, or virtualization
