The purpose of this research was to develop a methodology for creating cyber situational assessment between a physical network and its virtual copy to enable cyber situational awareness (CSA) in the Mapping, Awareness, and Virtualization Network Administrator Training Tool (MAVNATT) Awareness Module. The research focused on the nodal attributes of a network that contribute most toward creating CSA while also lending to virtualization. This work describes a conceptual system design and toolset that enables users to collect, normalize, and store network attributes in a non-relational database, and analyzes open-source software that can be used as its intermediary build platform. We also describe a conceptual design for the MAVNATT Awareness Module, which queries, selects, and stores the nodal attributes in a relational database schema for tracking and management. The relational schema in this work was written in MySQL and reverse engineered using Oracle’s SQL Developer to check for correctness. Documentation of the schema tables and their relationships, cross-referenced with a matrix of the attributes that can be virtualized in VirtualBox, accompany the provided SQL code.
