Understanding how network infrastructure changes with time is essential to protecting an organization's network. Multiple methods for discovering network topology using different areas of graph theory and concepts of social network relationships will be discussed. Passively detecting changes in network topology and presenting this to network engineers and analysts will increase an organization's threat management capabilities to counter malicious network activities; the application of change point detection to social networks will be the backbone of this approach. This research project is in the early stages of development and will be presented as such.
