Secure Configuration Auditing for Network Defense (SCAND)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
The SCAND concept improves network system security by increasing the efficiency of human administrators and narrowing the window of opportunity for malicious users to exploit vulnerabilities in network systems. This is achieved through the monitoring and auditing of system security configurations on large-scale, mission critical network systems. The SCAND system uses software agents to compare the security configuration of network devices and software components with established policy, develop response plans upon discovery of security configuration non-compliances, and take appropriate action as indicated by the security manager.
