Abstract:

Our objective was to determine whether DoD, using host-based intrusion detection systems HIDS, was detecting, reporting, and mitigating cyber intrusions. We reviewed the status of deployment and configuration of HIDS as reported by DoD Components to U.S. Cyber Command, and specifically within the offices of Force Health Protection and Readiness and the Defense Microelectronics Activity. We also reviewed U.S. Cyber Commands ability to monitor intrusions. DoD Components did not consistently use HIDS to detect, report, and mitigate cyber intrusions.
