As one of the security components in cyber situational awareness systems, Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is implemented by many organizations in their networks to address the impact of network attacks. Regardless of the tools and technologies used to generate security alarms, IDS can provide a situation overview of network traffic. With the security alarm data generated, most organizations do not have the right techniques and further analysis to make this alarm data more valuable for the security team to handle attacks and reduce risk to the organization. This paper proposes the IDS Metrics Framework for cyber situational awareness system that includes the latest technologies and techniques that can be used to create valuable metrics for security advisors in making the right decisions. This metrics framework consists of the various tools and techniques used to evaluate the data. The evaluation of the data is then used as a measurement against one or more reference points to produce an outcome that can be very useful for the decision making process of cyber situational awareness system. This metric offers an additional Graphical User Interface (GUI) tools that produces graphical displays and provides a great platform for analysis and decision-making by security teams.
