How IAD Leverages Big Data for Anomaly and Malware Detection (v10.2)

ABSTRACT

Malware is growing increasingly sophisticated. Threats are becoming more targeted and moving to places where existing defenses have limited visibility. Proactively addressing these threats means leveraging insights gained from Big Data and the fusion of multiple sources of information. Operational Fusion and Analysis, OFA, an organization within the National Security Agency’s Information Assurance Directorate utilizes Big Data to provide battlespace awareness and critical intelligence on the attack lifecycles of intrusions to decision makers and network defenders. This is accomplished by performing qualitative and quantitative analysis, summarization, fusion, and trending of data across multiple networks, customers, and domains. The more insight the OFA gains into a network or series of networks, the more easily abnormal activity can be identified.
