Abstract
The rapid increase in diverse and interconnected Information Technology (IT) applications necessitates software solutions that can simultaneously provide cyber situation awareness and real-time status of health of the networked environment. There is a pressing need to aggregate and consolidate information from mission-critical systems and sensors. A unified means of visualization abstracts low-level details so that decisions can be made with confidence – an operator must be able to trust the management console; this is especially true during an attack or failure of infrastructure or sensors when the ability to “fight through” the attack requires continued management of the infrastructure and interpretation of the collected data. Pikewerks will develop a Data Aggregation and Visualization Environment (DAVE) for portraying situation awareness and overall enterprise health within a cyber network. DAVE will be platform independent, support multiple domains and provide an interface for distributed plugins. The distributed plugins will be used for data processing, collection, and dispatching agents for situation awareness, healing and new sensor types.
