Netcentric Operations Defense Environment (NODE™)

The NODE™ system uses data mining and machine learning technologies to provide a more advanced and adaptable computer network defense.  The technology executes data mining and machine learning technologies and algorithms over the network hosts;  i.e., over the entire computing fabric.

The ubiquity of computing systems and networks has vastly improved the speed and ease of gathering, storing, and disseminating information.  Networking on a global scale, however, also gives rise to a significant disadvantage:  network vulnerability.  Securing data, particularly with respect to sensitive national security data and data transmissions, is a paramount concern, particularly given the increasing sophistication of computer terrorism.
