DHS/NPPD/PIA-001The EINSTEIN Program

EINSTEIN provides US-CERT a situational awareness snapshot of the health of the federal governments' cyber space. Based upon agreements with participating federal agencies, US-CERT installs systems at their Internet access points to collect network flow data. The agencies are provided tools to analyze their collected data. In addition, the data is shared with US-CERT Security Operations Center, which aggregates it from all EINSTEIN participants to identify network anomalies spanning the federal government.

Note:  This system received a PIA 3-year review on June 28, 2013.
