Dartmouth Internet Security Testbed (DIST)

Project Summary

This nation needs research that addresses fundamental challenges faced in the design, deployment, evaluation and validation of security solutions in a large, complex, heterogeneous operational network, and research that begins to address security and privacy challenges of the Internet of tomorrow - one built on wireless networks and populated with a wide variety of Internet-enabled mobile devices. We propose to develop the Dartmouth Internet Security Testbed (DIST), a large-scale deployment designed to support these research challenges. The Institute for Security, Technology, and Society (ISTS), in collaboration with Dartmouth's Peter Kiewit Computing Services, will deploy this integrated testbed comprising a wireless-network measurement infrastructure, a network-security monitoring center, and a suite of Wi-Fi capable mobile devices. The unprecedented reach of this testbed, with real-time monitors covering a substantial portion of the production campus network, set DIST apart from other security testbeds and other wireless testbeds.
