NetAbstraction is a cloud-based service that obscures and varies network pathways, while protecting customer identities and systems. NetAbstraction’s patent pending design provides secure, varied, and non-apparent network connectivity, a range of identity management and persona attribution options to alter or reduce the cyber attack profile; and system designs to help control customer information held within commercial cloud provider databases. In addition, NetAbstraction will augment the multi-layered security capabilities provided by the commercial cloud providers, to include implementing dynamic security policies to help ensure that malicious traffic is not allowed to enter the network.
NetAbstraction transparently distributes the communications activity within and across multiple clouds and regularly churns the underlying network infrastructure. The dynamic shifting of communications across multiple commercial providers and use of multi-hop transport makes actual user information and origination location and identities a very difficult target for hackers, search engine optimization companies or other privacy threats.
NetAbstraction allows users to create dedicated networks within the NetAbstraction service infrastructure. NetAbstraction’s capabilities and solutions include:
NetAbstraction can be used to conduct privacy protected internet browsing, implement secure virtual private networks between either individuals or facilities, or establish protected enclaves between customer data centers and commercial clouds. NetAbstraction provides a range of identity (persona) options, choice of globally distributed egress nodes (east coast US, west coast US, Europe, South America, Asia), and control over information held within commercial providers’ databases.
While NetAbstraction provides anonymization of a user’s Internet activities, it is not recognized by websites as a proxy. (Websites routinely filter for the use of proxies and prohibit anyone using a proxy from access to their sites.) NetAbstraction controls the network routing through its network to abstract user’s location and identity via its patent pending design.
The NetAbstraction service is only available to organizational users, not private individuals. All organizational accounts will be registered, validated, and initiated through Cutting Edge. Users will be given a choice of:
While NetAbstraction maintains logs on the time of log in, egress node accessed, and the amount of bandwidth used, the system was designed to not be able to track a customer’s Internet activities.
