Efficient detection and mitigation of internet routing attacks.

The “MIRAGE” project (Mitigation of Internet Routing Attacks Globally and Efficiently) is focused on the detection and mitigation of BGP prefix hijacking attacks, in real time with the use of fully automated techniques.

MIRAGE, based on a partnership between the Foundation for Research and Technology (FORTH), the PRAXI network of FORTH and the IT companies Cytech and Enartia, aims to develop the existing ARTEMIS open source tool (developed by FORTH) to detect and mitigate similar attacks, providing the following innovative services:

  1. automation of system setting and attack mitigation
  2. advanced attack detection
  3. a mobile application and push notification system over the internet and mobile networks
  4. scalable cloud services for ease of access and resilience to system failures

The end product will be a complete service. The service is expected to have a large impact on the automation and security tooling market; by helping businesses and other organizations to immediately detect and mitigate attacks against their network resources, while reinforcing the competitiveness of the national economy in the network security domain, and thus penetrating global markets.
