Abstract
Establishing timely, trusted, and comprehensive Navy Cyber Situation Awareness (NCSA) requires analytic methods that put into context the information drawn from multiple sources and alerting mechanisms, including intrusion detection outputs, network health diagnostics, activity-based alerting, and adversary threat reports. The Context Aware Inference for NCSA (CAIN) program will address this important operational need by developing, evaluating, and transitioning an innovative case-based, context-aware reasoning capability. In the Phase I program we will: (1) develop an algorithmic approach and overall framework for the problem of improving NCSA; (2) conduct a series of focused investigations and evaluations of algorithms for context-aware situation assessment and visualization; and (3) evaluate the consequences of the proposed algorithms on the overall NCSA system. The results of the Phase I program will demonstrate the feasibility and promise of the systems concept to be realized in Phase II.
