About Cyber Defense Agency

Cyber Defense Agency is a company that received a Department of Defense SBIR/STTR grant for a project entitled: Utilizing Hardware Features for Covert Loading and Execution of Software. The abstract given for this project is as follows: Current methods for the covert loading and execution of software typically operate at ring zero or are hypervisor based. Detecting the presence of hidden processes is a cat and mouse game when using traditional kernel-based techniques, and timing analysis and other methods have demonstrated the ability to detect the presence of a hypervisor as well. Modern hardware platforms provide opportunities to execute code completely outside of the context of the operating system. Some of the challenges of covertly executing code on the hardware resources, outside the context of the operating system, involve interfacing with the overlying OS and finding ways to meaningfully interact with it. To fully explore the possibilities of covert loading and execution of software, we must further investigate the approaches for leveraging the hardware resources of a system to execute code covertly. This research looks at BIOS modifications, peripheral cards, and Systems Management Mode (SMM), as well as an investigation into the capabilities introduced with the Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI), and the possibilities for covert code execution using this emerging architecture.

Romanian specialists participate in NATO cyber defense exercise

Dec 5, 2019

05 December 2019 More than 75 Romanian specialists, coordinated by the Cyber Defense Agency from the Cyber Defense Command of the Ministry of National Defense, participate in Cyber Coalition 2019, the most important cyber defense exercise organized by NATO. The exercise is organized between December 2 and December 5, with the Coordination Center in the city of Tartu in Estonia. The exercise is attended by representatives from all NATO member states, from the NATO Communications and Information Agency and from the NATO Center of Excellence for Cyber Defense, as well as by specialists from the military, private and academic sectors, and representatives of non-NATO member countries, according to the Romanian Ministry of Defense. The Romanian specialists come from the Ministry of National Defense, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Foreign Intelligence Service, the Protection and Guard Service, the Romanian Intelligence Service, the Special Telecommunications Service, and CERT-RO (National Center for Cyber Security Incident Response). The Romanian team also includes private partners with expertise in cyber security from Bitdefender, Certsign, Oracle, Provision, Safetech and Secureworks. The exercise’s main goal is to test and train the response capacity of the Alliance when it comes to defending its critical infrastructures against third-party challenges when operating in an area open to cyber confrontations. Using a controlled and secure virtual environment, all participants must solve scenarios that involve complex vulnerabilities, threats and risks, to which they have to provide prompt solutions.
