TransPAC2 Security

The two security areas that we will address throughout this project are protecting the network infrastructure itself and analyzing the data that transits our network. Protecting the network infrastructure is accomplished by packet filters applied to the control plane of the TransPAC2 router, keeping up to date on the vulnerabilities that effect network components, and monitoring device event logs. Daily analysis of data that transits the TransPAC2 network is accomplished by providing NetFlow data to the Research and Education Networking - Information Sharing and Analysis Center (REN-ISAC).

The REN-ISAC is an integral part of higher education's strategy to improve network security through information collection, analysis, dissemination, early warning, and response; specifically designed to support the unique environment and needs of organizations connected to served higher education and research networks, and supports efforts to protect the national cyber infrastructure by participating in the formal U.S. ISAC structure.
