Fog Computing is a relatively new concept. Coined by Salvatore J. Stolfo, the idea was to launch a disinformation attack on malicious insiders. This is done by implementing user behavior profiling and decoy technology. Cisco later adopted Fog Computing and changed it to be more about a platform which could deal with the massive amounts of data created by the Internet of Things (IoT) but also keep the proximity of that data close to the end user.
This presentation will discuss a proposed framework which utilizes the concept of Fog Computing to establish a Defensive Network Sensor Environment using open source tools. Each network sensor can have one or more identities and act as a monitor or decoy. The concept is to develop a distributed modular system which can be easily adapted by each organization.
