New Context’s Contributions
- Maturation of STIX Version 2 which allows for easier viewing of patterns behind malware and attack campaigns to include specific protocols, attacks, and remediations.
- Development of a Threat Monitoring Appliance (TMA) for test beds, which allows for detection of realtime simulated attacks by converting observables into STIX and taking automated response actions.
- Validation of work with Idaho National Laboratory SCADA test beds.
- Supporting simulations at scale with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in their High Performance Computing environment.
