Abstract:

The purpose of this task was to integrate technology developed as part of the World Infrastructure Security Environment WISE program by Orincon Information Assurance into the Air Force Research Laboratory AFRL Cyber Security Management System CSMS. The intended capabilities of WISE are to monitor host activity in real-time, alert analysts about information attacks utilizing a cost-benefit model, and recommend information-based countermeasures. Collection of WISE data into CSMS would enable quicker and more accurate response to threats against enterprise networks. However, at the time that this system integration work was performed, WISE and CSMS were not available. Therefore, since Orincons Distributed Agent Information Watch DAIWatch is the precursor to WISE and AFRLs Air Force Enterprise Defense system AFED is the forerunner to CSMS, it was decided to enhance the method of data transfer from DAIWatch to AFED, which, at some future point in time, could be adapted for use by the WISE and CSMS programs, with a modicum of effort.
