NPS provides high-quality, relevant, and unique advanced education and research programs that increase the combat effectiveness of the Navy, other Armed Forces of the U.S, and other partners to enhance national security. This mission’s core enabler is NPS’s ability to protect and defend the school’s network data and intellectual property from unauthorized use. This is a challenging requirement because of the highly available network supporting multiple, complex requirements, including collaborative partnerships with other DoD entities, advanced research conducted by NPS faculty, membership in several regional and national higher education networks, and cutting-edge research in networking, and many other initiatives. To better protect the dual mission of providing higher education on the one hand and advanced research on the other, NPS needs to improve its network security, prevent intrusions, and understand the normal operations of network traffic to better defense NPS networking resources. All of this should be completed in a manner consistent with its mission while also meeting the security requirements unique to the Navy and DoD.
