Abstract
GHOSTNet is a secure and anonymous Virtual Private Network (VPN) service. Coupling Ethernet tunneling and proxy services to provide users safe and anonymous Internet access, GHOSTNet utilizes TLS (SSL) protocol with AES-256 encryption to secure the network along with PKI certificates and HMAC protection from replay attacks and UDP flooding. This thesis will be a system level test and evaluation of the GHOSTNet infrastructure. The primary objective is to determine the functional performance of GHOSTNet as a global command and control gateway with the goal of being able to dynamically connect and disconnect diverse forces on a task-force-by-task-force basis. To ac...
