Cyber DEM PDG - Cyber Data Exchange Model

The Cyber DEM seeks to represent cyber events and objects in a format independent of simulation interoperability solutions, but which is unambiguously translatable to those solutions. The Cyber DEM will provide the common representation of these cyberspace conditions so they can be transmitted bi-directionally between cyber ranges, cyber simulations, and the test / training environments supported by traditional kinetic simulation. The Cyber DEM will be produced in an architecture-neutral format; subsequent standardization efforts will be launched to produce architecture-specific versions including, but not necessarily limited to:

  • High Level Architecture (HLA) Federation Object Model (FOM)
  • Input to the existing Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) standard
  • Input to the existing SISO enumerations (SISO-REF-010)
  • Test & Training Enabling Architecture (TENA) Object Model
  • JavaScript Object Notation (JSON)
