Decision support systems for network security represent a critical element in the safe operation of computer networks. Unfortunately, due to their complexity, it can be difficult to implement and empirically assess novel techniques for displaying networks. This paper details an open source adaptive user interface that hopes to fill this gap. This system supports agile development and offers a wide latitude for human factors and machine learning design modifications. The intent of this system is to serve as an experimental testbed for determining the efficacy of different human factors and machine learning initiatives on operator performance in network monitoring.
