With the rapid development of the Internet, network security situation awareness has attracted tremendous attention. In large-scale complex networks, network security situation awareness data presents the characteristics of large-scale, multi-source, and heterogeneous. Recently, much research work have been done on network security situation awareness. However, most of the existing methods store different types of data in different ways, which makes data query and analysis inefficient. To solve
more » ... this problem, we propose a graph database-based hierarchical multi-domain network security situation awareness data storage method. In our scheme, we build a hierarchical multi-domain network security situation awareness model to divide the network into different domains, which can collect and dispose the awareness data more efficiently. Meanwhile, to unify our storage mode, we also define network security situation awareness data storage rules and methods based on graph database. Finally, extensive experiments on real datasets show that our proposed method is efficient compared to state-of-the-art storage models.
