In today’s modern warfare environment the ability to conduct Network Enabled Operations has become crucial to the success of any military organization. This dependence on the networks and the information superiority that they provide has heightened the requirement to understand how networks may be vulnerable and to defend against cyber threats that may attempt to exploit these vulnerabilities. The Joint Network Defence and Management System (JNDMS) Technology Demonstrator (TD) has successfully demonstrated the value of combining the domains of enterprise network management with network security management to provide comprehensive Situational Awareness (SA) for Computer Network Defence (CND) to the Canadian Forces. Through numerous experiments and demonstrations, culminating with the demonstration of a full system deployment on the Defence Research Experimental Network, the project has shown that the costs, risks and complexities of engineering such a system can be greatly reduced by the integration of currently available Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) products into a flexible, open standards-based system architecture. The final activity for the JNDMS TD is to illustrate a path to operations that describes a feasible approach for evolving the Technology Demonstration System to a full implementation on the DND networks. This report contains recommendations which will greatly reduce the risk and associated costs of following this path. A great deal of effort during the JNDMS
