The focus of DARPA’s Scalable Network Monitoring (SNM) program is the development and testing of gateway malicious activity detection devices. Secure Decisions has teamed with Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab (JHU/APL) to design, develop, and operate a cyber test environment, that provides the capability to generate a sufficient volume of both benign and malicious activity to maintain full-line speed (from 1 Gbps to 100 Gbps) at the network gateway.
Network engineers and analysts built a test network environment simulating a secure DoD network gateway and also designed test procedures, program metrics, and a corpus of malicious activity for use within the test environment. Through execution of a series of test scenarios, scoring of those results, and analysis of the performance of the systems under test, the SNM program will provide innovative network defense capabilities for the nation.
Secure Decisions has built an SNM Status Board System for monitoring test execution. This system provides the ability to monitor the test network and display the performance of systems under test. The Status Board console is a Graphical User Interface consisting of six different information monitoring and management panels:
