1. A graphical user interface contained on a computer screen and used for determining the security posture of a network comprising:

  • a system design window for displaying network icons of a network map that are representative of different network elements contained within a network, wherein respective network icons are linked together in an arrangement corresponding to how network elements are interconnected within the network;

    wherein selected portions of the network map turn a different color indicative of a vulnerability that has been established for that portion of the network after a security posture of the network has been established by correlating a system object model database that supports information data requirements of disparate network vulnerability analysis programs with any data results obtained from the programs.
