Abstract

The Advanced Packet Obfuscation and Control program (Apoc) was developed to extend the functionality of the ISEAGE lab. The Internet Scale Event and Attack Generation Environment (ISEAGE) lab implements a virtual Internet testbed where cyber attacks can be tested. Apoc is a very dynamic tool which can be configured to implement a number of modifications to packets as they traverse the network. These modifications primarily focus on increasing the flow of traffic through ISEAGE and abstracting the source of attacks. Apoc works by interpreting a user provided script which specifies the modifications to be performed. Although Apoc was inspired primarily for use in the ISEAGE lab, it is also a useful tool for many real world problems.
