What is Advanced Evasion Techniques?
An advanced evasion technique (AET) is a type of network attack that combines several different known evasion techniques on-the-fly to create a new technique that won’t be recognized by an intrusion detection system.
Advanced Evasion threat can cause severe damage even to the secured organization:
- It can breach many firewalls and avoids detection
- It inserts malicious code by slicing and dicing it into bits and pieces that arrive by different paths
- It re-assembles on an endpoint to gain access
- AETs are quite successful for the most part, evading the technologies deployed by next generation firewalls (NGFWs)
- Targets intellectual property and financial resources
- Goes unnoticed until long until the damage is done
- Mcfee claims that most firewalls are only capable of blocking less than 10 percent of known AETs and the majority of malicious code delivered using AETs slips by unnoticed.
