DHS/S&T/PIA-006 Protected Repository for the Defense of Infrastructure Against Cyber Threats

The Science & Technology Directorate's Protected Repository for the Defense of Infrastructure Against Cyber Threats (PREDICT) system is a repository of test datasets of Internet traffic data that is made available to approved researchers and managed by an outside contractor serving as the PREDICT Coordination Center (PCC). The goal of PREDICT is to create a national research and development (R&D) resource to bridge the gap between (a) the producers of security-relevant network operations data and (b) technology developers and evaluators who can use this data to accelerate the design, production, and evaluation of next-generation cyber security solutions, including commercial products. A key motivation of PREDICT is to make these data sources more widely available to technology developers and evaluators, who are currently forced to base the efficacy of their technical solutions on old, irrelevant traffic data, anecdotal evidence, or small-scale test experiments, rather than on more comprehensive, real-world data analysis.
