Network Security Situation Awareness (NSSA) can significantly improve the monitoring and emergency response capability of the network. It’s important to predict the network security trend. In this paper, we described the key technologies of NSSA, and then we discussed the advantages and disadvantages of the various algorithms of network security situation assessment and predict. Finally, we summary the problems of network security situational awareness, and analyzed the future direction of development and trends.
