Allocation of Missions Built on Resource Optimization (AMBORO)

Under development as part of DARPA's Mission‐oriented Resilient Clouds (MRC) program, Adventium's Allocation of Missions Built on Resource Optimization (AMBORO) system will provide a flexible, adaptable, and effective means of optimizing the expected utility of cloud resource allocations to mission tasks. AMBORO builds upon CARINAE, Adventium's existing constraint‐based network configuration optimizer. On AMBORO, CARINAE forms the base of an extensible, scalable platform for modeling and solving complex cloud management problems involving uncertain information. Key challenges include representing and reasoning about expectations,tradeoffs involving risk and resource cost for deploying monitoring and active defenses, and the effect of network asset compromises onmeasures of mission effectiveness.
