PNNL’s patent-pending deception platform deploys decoys that mimic real devices. Shadow Figment turns the tables on attackers by distracting them, impeding their progress, and creating uncertainty with ‘decoy devices.’ Shadow Figment is a model-driven defense software designed specifically for control systems. Specialized algorithms enable the Shadow Figment decoys to send realistic operational signals back to attackers, letting them think they are affecting a real OT system. Instead, alerts are sent to defenders, so they can take action and learn more about the attack method.
- Shadow Figment has been licensed nonexclusively and received funding under DOE’s Technology Commercialization Fund to work with Attivo Networks to create a commercial product.
- Shadow Figments has been selected for DOE’s PACT program, as a technology ready for additional licensing.
