Software virtual networks new battle field for cyber-warrior attack emulations

The software virtual network (SVN) allows the US military to test whether its countermeasures are up to the task of disabling viruses, worms and other malware. No problem if they don’t work the first time; the real network has not been affected. "[B]eing able to create an emulation in synthetic space gives you a nondestructive infrastructure where you can do multiple iterations, multiple variations, and not have to consume a lot of time and dollars and hardware just to do those tests," according to Steve Norry, director of engineering at Scalable Network Technologies.

Norry goes on to say that "In the simulations that network designers use, the message always gets through to the recipient. But if you want to test whether interference or dropped packets or any number of real-world problems are going to adversely affect your network before you deploy it, then you need to use the real-time emulation of our software virtual network."

This technology is filtering down to the private sector because, although the consequences of cyber attacks on their systems will not be as dire as ones on the military, they still need to find nondestructive ways to stress-test their systems to indentify security gaps so that they can determine how to plug these holes. Pinpointing interference from TV towers and tall buildings can also be accomplished with this WAN emulation tool.

Best-in-Class WAN Emulation Providers:

  • Able to accurately determine bandwidth requirements to minimize bandwidth cost
  • Enables multiple users to run different emulations at the same time
  • Can test VoIP and video conferencing performance

Top Considerations Before Selecting WAN Emulation Provider:

The capabilities and cost of the products available in the marketplace is wide ranging. Thought needs to go into what your company’s needs are today and what they might be in the near future so that you don’t buy an underperforming solution because you are put off by the higher price tags on the more complex products. Troubleshooting capabilities are very helpful. In addition, some models allow emulations on redundant, backup and multi-home connections.

Key Providers:

1. iTrinegy Inc.'s Enterprise (INE Enterprise), which is designed to enable simultaneous multi-user/multi-site testing of applications, was chosen as finalist by Network Computing in the 2010 Best Testing & Monitoring Products. Other WAN Emulation products are: iTrinegy Compact (INE Compact), a small, affordable, silent and inline network simulator; INE for Windows which enables a LAN network to behave like a WAN, Wireless, GPRS/3G, Satellite, or other non-LAN network; LCD (INE-LCD) whose small size makes it easy to transport and use in the field; and Ultra (INE Ultra), a Next Generation network emulator that replicates high speed, high volume networks for large scale testing. iTrinegy Limited is a privately owned company registered in England and Wales that operates in the Americas through iTrinegy Inc.

WAN Emulation
Definition: A wide area network (WAN) enables computers in one location to communicate with computers from another by connecting local area networks (LAN) together. WAN or network emulation is a technique typically involving the  introducing a device on the WAN that enables study of an existing, planned or underperforming network to assess performance. Unlike simulation, emulation appears to be a network.

Application Testing Over Networks
iTrinegy Inc
Learn why testing applications in a LAN environment should only be done if the applications will only traverse the LAN. If the applications are expected to work within the WAN, then testing in an emulated environment is the only reasonable solution to guarantee acceptable performance in non-LAN networks. The problem is that software performance testing is still usually only conducted over the ...
Causes and Correlation of Network Impairments
InterWorking Labs, Inc.
The purpose of this paper is to discuss the ways in which networks may be imperfect and how we evaluate and deal with those limitations. What do we mean by the "imperfect network"? There is no such thing as a perfect network. The laws of physics and mathematics impose limitations that are random (such as noise on copper or fiber optic cables, or hardware or software failures in routers and ...
Limitations of ICMP Echo for network measurement
InterWorking Labs, Inc.
Limitations of ICMP Echo for network measurement Many engineers assume that ICMP Echo, more familiar as "ping", is a valid tool for measuring the performance and behavior of the internet. That assumption is incorrect. Ping is a tool of value mainly for determining whether connectivity exists or not. Ping is a weak tool for measuring delay, variation in delay (jitter), and throughput. · What are ...
