Military information systems are force multipliers; systems reliability is more critical than ever. Wise Web softWare proposed to leverage its expertise in network security, intrusion detection, fraud detection, expert systems, data mining, and adaptiveinterfaces for the Security and Integrity Learning Expert System (SILES) to monitor and analyze threats to systems. SILES will not only consider aspects of the problem discussed in the topic, such as target and attacker profiling, system-wide securitydata fusion, feature extraction/classification, data mining, and run-time system monitoring of users/systems, but also the following critical items.1. A probability-based engine to easily and intuitive describe the significance of threats that affect information systems.2. A semantic analysis tool to automatically categorize documents for appropriate dissemination. SILES will categorize, intercept, deceive, and alert administrators on inappropriate attempts to access sensitive materials.3. An intuitive interface personalized to individual users for specifying knowledge about equipment, security software, operating systems, applications, etc.4. An effective interface for readily interpreting security threat data. Threats must be readily prioritized, understood and (sometimes automatically) compensated to be more useful. The final objective (i.e., Phase II prototype) will be a collection of agents for monitoring the appropriate usage of resources (including specific types of documents) on networks. SILES will also include interfaces, controlling software, and softwarefor discovering / adding new elements to agent's knowledge. SILES will add several crucial capabilities that dramatically improve upon the state-of-the-art in fraud detection, employee monitoring, and intrusion detection systems. Wise Web softWare develops and sells software tools, applications and training in web-based artificial intelligence solutions. Our software has already been leveraged under the Army ACT II program and is being sold both in the U.S. and abroad. The most immediate marketplace is, obviously, with the topic's program office (e.g., High Performance Computing Modernization) through invitations of the topic authors to the office. Other obvious government customers include Army CECOM, USAFInformation Technology Branch, the Office of Naval Research, and Defense Information Systems Agency - for the technology - and security personnel for the system itself. Significant civilian government and private sector customers also exist. Our marketing personnel will use our contacts in the health care industry to penetrate these markets; hospitals are rapidly transitioning to wireless networks, even at costs of tens of millions of dollars per facility, and are legally obligated to privacy concerns (through HIPAA).Another market that we are currently assessing is the employee monitoring domain. We are also assessing the value of marketing our tool in the Knowledge Management and Categorization software domains.
