Acropolis, formerly named the Community Data Center (CDC), using a capability called CENTAUR, is a DoD enterprise-wide capability implementing security best practices by collecting, storing, and analyzing summaries of DoD data on an out-of-band network that is separate from the network the data is originally gathered from. Acropolis currently collects, stores, and analyzes both enclave and backbone network traffic on the Non-secure Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRNet) and Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet). Its mission is to build, maintain, and support a DoD enterprise capability to acquire a global situational awareness of the DoD Information Network (DODIN) from both an information assurance and a network operations perspective to improve defense and support of DoD Cyber Operations.
Acropolis is available to the entire DoD network defense community.
VALUE TO OUR MISSION PARTNERS
Acropolis contains computer network defense- data monitored from DoD enterprise services, NIPRNet Internet access boundary monitoring, and SIPRNet secret provider edge routers. This data combined with the Acropolis analysis and workflow suite of tools provides situational awareness of these computer networks used by the Department of Defense.
