Abstract

Over a nine week time period we designed and developed a prototype threat rating and collaborative assessment tool for MIT Lincoln Laboratory. This tool is designed to help network analysts identify and monitor emerging vulnerabilities in computing software and determine the level of threat discovered vulnerabilities poses to Lincoln Laboratory’s infrastructure. The developed tool was designed both to be modular and extensible, to allow for further development and advancement of this technology at Lincoln Laboratory, and to facilitate teamwork between otherwise isolated analysts as they work to identify threats.
