The National Security Agency has developed a suite of tools meant to provide wider access to insights on systems security research and facilitate the adoption of network-protection approaches in various industries.
NSA said Friday its Unfetter technologies are designed to provide a common lexicon of cyber attack definitions to allow network defenders and threat analysts to develop, share and utilize intelligence on malicious digital activities to enhance network security.
Unfetter’s Analytic Exchange app serves as a collaboration platform for threat analysts while the Capability Assessment app lets network defenders evaluate security capacities, critical controls and content from the analysis sharing tool.
NSA’s Unfetter system also features the Threat Dashboard app where cybersecurity intelligence analysts can create and track reports on attacker behavior, techniques and tools for customers.
The Unfetter software is available for download and customization through the program’s website.
