Research Institution
Our work is concerned with solving a growing need to identify and assess the impact of attacks on the U.S. Navy"s vast and heterogeneous networking infrastructure; to report those attacks and impacts to the Maritime domain; and to enable command and control (C2) of those domains as an adjunct capability to traditional maritime C2. Right now the two domains are disjoint, because the cyber side is typically an outgrowth of non-military concepts and data representations from network monitoring, management, defense, intrusion detection, etc. But linking them is essential. ADM Roughead, former Navy CNO, on 19 October 2007 stated,"The opening rounds of the next war will be in cyberspace the Navy must be ready to prevent wars as well as win them; to do that, we must understand how we will live, operate, and win in cyberspace."Harmonia proposes a system called NetOps/Mission Clearinghouse (NOMC) that implements a service for delivering NetOps data with near-real time delivery. NOMC connects the Cyber and Maritime domains, using new methods drawn from the best techniques for enterprise service implementation, AI, machine learning, scalable distributed file systems in clouds (e.g., Hadoop, MapR), and scalable SQL-free databases (e.g., HBase, Accumulo, CloudBase).
