CHANTILLY, Va. Perspecta Labs -- a research unit at Perspecta Inc. -- will continue its research and development (R&D) work on cyber defenses against distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) under a new contract modification worth up to $2.7 million, dependent on successful completion of milestones.

The modification represents on-contract growth as part of DARPA's Extreme DDoS Defense (XD3) program.

On the base program, Perspecta Labs researched and developed innovative techniques aimed at dynamically obscuring high-value cyber assets, detecting stealthy, low-volume intrusions, performing defensive maneuvers to mislead and confuse adversaries, and launching mitigation steps to repel both widespread and targeted attacks.

Under the option, Perspecta Labs will integrate these techniques to implement, evaluate, and demonstrate a multi-modal DDoS defense solution which combines these defensive capabilities.
