VAO is an Abbreviation for Virtual Private Network Attack Orchestrator.

VAO has existed in various configurations since 2003. Originally developed as a standalone application by the Network Security Products branch, the later became a key crypt application integrated with corporate collection frameworks such as WC2 and TURMOIL.

As of 2006, the Heritage VAO, as it is now known, was stood up inside of a JBoss server. In November 2008, a new development effort was stood up in order to increase the throughput and stability of the VAO. The new VAO system, under the cover term POISONNUT, has a major development milestone scheduled for September 2009.

POISONNUT is the first component which will be available under the LONGHAUL project. This new development is being undertaken by developers in the T342P and the S31243 VPN Team.
