CycSecure is a network risk assessment and network monitoring application that relies on knowledge-based artificial intelligence technologies to improve on traditional network vulnerability assessment. CycSecure integrates public reports of software faults from online databases, data gathered automatically from computers on a network and hand-ontologized information about computers and computer networks. This information is stored in the Cyc knowledge base (KB) and reasoned about by the Cyc inference engine and planner to provide detailed analyses of the security (and vulnerability) of networks.
