Raytheon BBN Technologies developing new approach to cyber defense
- DARPA's Plan X aims to create a unified, multi-functional interface for cyber operations
Raytheon BBN Technologies is working on the Plan X program, which seeks to help U.S. government agencies plan, execute and assess cyber network operations. Raytheon BBN Technologies is a wholly owned subsidiary of Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN).
"Plan X is an entirely new approach for planning and executing cyber operations," said Dr. Jack Marin, vice president for cyber security at Raytheon BBN. "It is a comprehensive program designed to provide easy-to-use cyber operations planning tools to users who may not have a deep background in cyber."
Raytheon BBN is developing network mapping and graph analysis technologies under a $6 million Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency contract. The Raytheon BBN system will continually assimilate network information to create a multi-dimensional, single interface to enable planning of cyber operations.
