Abstract:

This document is a compendium of CyberSecurity Monitoring CSMn automated tools and research projects. In the first appendix to this document, users will find an explanation of what the author means by CyberSecurity Monitoring. In the second appendix, users will find a description of the attributes used to describe the tools and projects. In the descriptions of tools and projects, the author has used the unverified claims of the vendors and projects, paraphrasing what they have written to ensure a uniform style of presentation. In some cases, some other source of information was used these cases are noted individually. The third appendix focuses on projects being conducted at the Air Force Research Laboratory, Rome, NY. These projects encompass intrusion detection, damage assessment and recovery, forensic analysis, analysis and decision support, and intrusion detection support tools. A compendium of this type cannot cover all CSMn tools and projects -- there are too many of them and the population changes rapidly. For the commercial off-the-shelf COTS products, the author started the compendium in the latter half of 1998, and published the first version of it in March 1999 under the title Compendium of Anomaly Detection and Reaction Tools and Projects. On May 17, 2000, he issued a revision of that work, which included more products and projects as well as new types of automated tools. In this Aug 2000 version of the compendium, the author has avoided the use of the word anomaly and has narrowed the subject matter from cybersecurity management to cybersecurity monitoring. This revision includes all the government off-the-shelf GOTS products for which information could be obtained 4. All the research and development projects are ones that are funded, directly or indirectly, by the U.S. government. The compendium is organized into three sections 1 Commercial Off-the-Shelf Products, 2 Government Off-the-Shelf Products, and 3 Research and Development.
