The Air Force has a new tool in its arsenal to combat cyberattacks.

With support from the Air Force Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer Program, Maryland-based Intelligent Automation Inc. developed the Self-shielding Dynamic Network Architecture. Also known as SDNA, the technology presents a constantly changing view to potential hackers. It is meant to complement existing cyber defense techniques that tend to be expensive and ineffective.

Because of its potential, the Air Force Research Laboratory and several federal agencies have provided funding to mature SDNA so it can be used for their specific needs. Additionally, Intelligent Automation launched another business that is selling the product commercially.
