Abstract
Current solutions for computer network security focus narrowly on the computer network for detection and management of security problems. But computer networks do not exist in a vacuum. They exist within a physical environment, and threats arise, not as a result of virtual digital entities-they are caused by real people. The boundary between cyber-defense technology and physical surveillance technology is a harmful limitation on the ability of organizations to protect their information resources. In response to the need for integrated cyber and physical security, the Sentar team proposes to develop an enterprise security management console called COMBO. COMBO will include development of a Common Event Ontology for cross-domain knowledge representation and definition of a generic interface for information exchange between Sentar's Work-Centered Interface for Computer Network Defense (WCI-CND) and physical security systems, such as SYColeman's intelligent surveillance solution, Praetorian. Data streams obtained from video, proximity, motion, and biometric devices will be correlated with cyber-attack information to pinpoint and document the locations and personal identities associated with attacks and other suspicious activities. By bringing together Sentar's advanced technologies for computer network defense with SYColeman's intelligent surveillance solutions, COMBO will provide a full range of integrated capabilities for security situation awareness.
